Jackson Health Foundation, the fundraising arm of Jackson Health System, is turning 25. For 25 years, the Foundation has assisted the health system in their efforts to meet the medical needs of every member of our community, ensuring that everyone receives the highest standard of care regardless of their ability to pay. Jackson has earned international recognition for the quality of its medical care, and offers patients access to breakthrough treatments while serving as the “go-to” source for the most complex, most expert care in the region. However, delivering this type of care comes at a price.
The 25th Birthday Bash is a charity fundraiser designed to benefit the Foundation’s Miracle Fund. The Foundation will celebrate its birthday on January 21, 2017. But you don’t have to wait until then to be part of the festivities. You can get a head start on the celebration by purchasing a ticket today or giving the Foundation a birthday gift in the form of an online to help patients in need.
“As the largest public health system in the country, the residents of Miami-Dade County have been a great source of funding for Jackson,” said Fana Holtz, co-chair of the 25th Birthday Bash. “However, taxpayer dollars cannot cover all costs. There are gaps. Through the Jackson Health Foundation Miracle Fund, we are able fill in many of the financial gaps that are not supported through taxpayer or government funding.”
Birthday gifts to the Miracle Fund enable the Foundation to provide flexible funding for the health system’s greatest needs – patient care, treatment, education, renovation of facilities and capital projects. Today, Jackson stands poised to usher in a new era of healthcare miracles as they raise the bar in providing world-class medical care to every member of our community and beyond.
