On Friday, Jackson Health System announced plans for the Shriners Children’s Orthopedic Center at its health district campus. The center, a partnership with the University of Miami and Shriners Children’s Florida, which runs the Tampa hospital, will house all pediatric orthopedic care when it opens in 2025.

The partnership started a year and a half ago, said Daniel Armstrong, director of the UM Mailman Center for Child Development. The CEO of the Tampa Shriners hospital approached him about collaborating in Miami.

The orthopedic center will be located east of Northwest 12th Avenue at Northwest 16th Street, steps from Holtz Children’s Hospital and the new Ronald McDonald House.

“Just like the exceptional care I received from Shriners Children’s Florida, the Shriners Orthopedic Center at Jackson will offer hope and healing to children all around South Florida,” Solano said.

The center, Armstrong said, will allow Jackson to provide orthopedic care and rehabilitation while also addressing the developmental needs of kids with conditions like cerebral palsy. It will enhance physical and occupational therapy and fill in some of the services Jackson has difficulty providing.

“We’ll be able to provide comprehensive care to all children, but we’ll be able to do it in a highly integrated one-stop coordinated fashion,” he said. The grant from Shriners Children’s Florida will build a pediatric orthopedics program that can treat both conditions like muscular dystrophy and traumatic injuries, said Carlos Migoya, CEO of Jackson Health System.
