Jackson West Medical Center Celebrates Grand Opening with Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

Jackson West Set to Open to the Community in August 2021

What:

Jackson West Medical Center – the first state-of-the-art medical campus in City of Doral – will celebrate its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 27, 2021.

Jackson West, scheduled to open to patients on August 2, will combine consumer-centered inpatient and outpatient facilities with the latest surgical and medical programs. The new medical center, designed by the architectural firm Perkins + Will, sits on a 27-acre property just west of the Palmetto Expressway on Northwest 25th Street.

The medical campus will feature José Milton Memorial Hospital – a 100-bed all private acute care hospital – adult and pediatric emergency room, state-of-the-art surgical facilities, diagnostic and imaging services, maternity care services, and specialty physician clinics. The total cost of the project is $336.4 million.

In 2015, Jackson purchased the property as part of the Jackson Miracle-Building Bond Program. In 2016, the Jackson Health Foundation received a $10 million donation from the José Milton Foundation in honor of Mr. José Milton, a well-known Miami businessman who became passionate about Jackson after experiencing firsthand its high-quality level of care, available to all.

The new medical campus will allow Jackson Health System to expand its world-class medical care into some of the county’s fastest-growing residential and commercial communities. Residents in these neighborhoods, including Doral, Westchester, Sweetwater, Hialeah and Miami Lakes – all of whom help fund Jackson’s mission – will have access to Jackson’s services closer to where they live, work, and play.
