From the very beginning, community leaders and benefactors realized how vitally important it was to help support and sustain Jackson Memorial Hospital, a cornerstone in Miami-Dade County on the forefront of providing exceptional medical care to the community.
Established in 1991 as Jackson Memorial Foundation, the organization was renamed Jackson Health Foundation in 2014. The Foundation serves as the fundraising arm of Jackson Health System, the most comprehensive healthcare provider in South Florida.
The Foundation plays a vital role in providing Jackson Health System with the support and the means to be a world-class academic medical system and the provider of choice for care in our community.
Since our inception, the Foundation has raised over $140 million on behalf of Jackson Health System. Beginning in January 2017 and throughout the year, we will highlight many of the success stories that contributed to this milestone.
