Jackson South Medical Center is proud to be one of the leading hospitals serving residents in south Miami-Dade County. Over the last decade, Jackson South has grown tremendously – not just in the services we offer and the number of patients we care for, but also in the size of our facility.

As part of Jackson Health System’s $1.8 billion capital plan to reinvest in all of its facilities and build new ones, we’re hard at work at Jackson South updating our hospital and bringing in the latest medical technology. We’ve opened a new, state-of-the-art intensive care unit capable of supporting the latest technology for our most critically ill and injured patients. To serve our community’s mental health needs, we have renovated a new behavioral health unit. Jackson South is also home to a beautiful new labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum unit – one of the few of its kind in South Florida – to serve all the needs of expectant mothers as they bring their new babies into the world. The future of Jackson South has never been brighter.

While we are excited about all of the work being done to enhance our facilities, our greatest pride point is the exceptional care delivered by our team of caregivers who share the qualities we value most: compassion, accountability, respect, and expertise. From one corner of our hospital to the other, we work hard to make sure we leave positive, lasting impressions on our visitors and patients by cultivating a caring and comforting environment. Our patients are part of our Jackson South family, and we try our best to make every person who walks through our doors feel at home.

Jackson South is a full-service hospital offering a wide range of medical specialties, including weight loss surgery, 24/7 emergency and trauma care, colorectal and robotic surgery, maternity care, and cardiology. Our nationally respected, board-certified physicians and specialists continue to be leaders in their fields.
We take great pride in our noble responsibility of caring for our community and strive to be THE hospital of choice in south Miami-Dade County. We hope that you will entrust Jackson South for all of your medical needs. We are here to serve you.
