UM/Jackson Honored with FL DOH Infant Hearing Award of Excellence 

Jackson Memorial Hospital


The newborn hearing program for babies born at Jackson Memorial Hospital was recently recognized by the Florida Department of Health. The program, run by a medical team from the Mailman Center for Childhood Development at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, was honored with the state's Infant Hearing Award of Excellence.


The prestigious award recognizes Florida hospitals that screen all newborn babies prior to discharge from the hospital, report all of their hearing screening results to the state, have a low referral rate on their hearing screenings and have good follow-up - all the way through diagnosis - for those babies who refer on their hearing screening while in the hospital.


"Babies born at Jackson receive the highest quality of care from an exceptional medical team that is focused on the infant's long term health and well-being," said Carlos A. Migoya, president and CEO of Jackson Health System. "This honor is a testament to our team's commitment towards early identification and early intervention of hearing loss."
