About Jackson Memorial Hospital

Since 1952, the Public Health Trust has had a basic affiliation agreement with the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, supplemented by an annual operating agreement, which sets forth the responsibilities of and the services to be provided by each party.

With more than 1,550 licensed beds, Jackson Memorial Hospital is both a referral center and a magnet for medical research.

Of the nearly 1,000 full-time faculty members of the medical school, more than 600 are doctors engaged in clinical practice who have been granted medical staff privileges and can admit patients to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

While Jackson Memorial and the University of Miami operate as independent institutions, many of the services and programs offered at the hospital and medical school have become closely integrated. This relationship has enabled Jackson Memorial to develop as a major tertiary care center, benefiting both the community and the region it serves.
