Jackson Health System unveiled a $1.4 billion capital plan to expand and improve Miami-Dade County’s public health provider over the next 10 years.
The plan details how Jackson's leaders plan to use the $830 million bond Miami-Dade County voters approved last fall. The more than 200 proposed projects would transform Jackson’s main Miami campus.
Also, nearly $150 million will be spent to upgrade Jackson North and South.
The biggest part of the plan includes a $117.4 million for a new rehabilitation hospital and $115.7 million hospital for the Miami Transplant Institute in partnership with the University of Miami.
Other proposed projects include new urgent care centers throughout Miami-Dade, at a cost of about $40 million.
Carlos Migoya, president and CEO of Jackson Health System says Jackson will need to generate at least $50 million a year in surpluses to invest in the plan to cover additional projects.
The projects will be built in phases beginning in the fall or winter.
