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 José Milton, a well-known Miami developer who was passionate about Jackson after receiving treatment for a brain tumor and other health issues at the hospital. He passed away in 2013.
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 will have access to Jackson’s services closer to where they live, work, and play.
