FIU doctors to practice at Jackson Memorial

Jackson Health System and Florida International University’s Wertheim College of Medicine on Wednesday announced plans for FIU physicians to begin providing care to hospitalized patients at Jackson Memorial in Miami, marking the first time that physicians affiliated with any academic institution other than the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine will work at the hospital.

FIU physicians have practiced at Jackson North Medical Center in North Miami Beach since 2007.

But Jackson Memorial — the centerpiece of the health system’s countywide network of clinics and hospitals — has been UM’s exclusive territory for nearly half a century.
