Dear Friends:

This month, we are happy to celebrate the newly opened José Milton Memorial Hospital at Jackson West Medical Center. Jackson West allows us to expand our world-class medical care into some of Miami-Dade County’s fastest-growing residential and commercial communities. Residents in these nearby neighborhoods, all of whom help fund Jackson’s mission, deserve access to our services closer to where they live, work, and play. 

As we look toward the end of summer, we are also excited to resume in-person events beginning in the fall. As we plan each of these gatherings we are working closely with health experts to make sure we are being mindful and acting responsibly for the safety
of all. Should we need to make adjustments to any of these events we will make sure to share those with you through our different communication channels. In the meantime, please save the date for our inaugural Mind Your Health Event on Sunday, October 10
and enjoy a day outdoors filled with resources and activities focused around mental health. Also, we hope you join us at the Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne for the 22nd Annual Guardians Of The Children Luncheon & Fashion Show on November 23, 2021. Finally, save the date for our annual Golden Angels Gala on January 29, 2022, which will be hosted at Jackson West. 

We wish you all a beautiful rest of the summer and look forward to seeing you soon.
