About the Lynn Rehabilitation Center

Around the world, Jackson Health System is known for saving lives. At our new, state-of-the-art rehabilitation center, we go even further: we give patients back their lives.

To empower the world’s best rehab team, Jackson built the world’s best rehab facility. The Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth/Jackson Memorial was designed from scratch to be one of the country’s elite facilities for patients recovering from traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, cancer treatment, and other complex conditions.

Caregivers have come to Miami from around the world to join the therapists, doctors, nurses, and other professionals providing inpatient and outpatient care, cutting-edge clinical research, and the unmatched development expertise of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.

The Facility
Every aspect of the facility and program are underlined by a focus on comprehensive care. Even the building’s layout is designed to ensure researchers, families, inpatients, and outpatients are sharing spaces – a constant reminder of the way Lynn Rehabilitation integrates academic study with the day-to-day treatment of patients.

And its location in the heart of one of the world’s most international cities ensures that Lynn Rehabilitation will be a hemispheric hub for diverse teams of caregivers and patients.

The Program
While other UHealth-Jackson specialty programs focus on life saving, UHealth Jackson Rehabilitation Care focuses on giving people back their lives.

  • Clinical care and research sharing space; patients see the scientists developing future treatment, and researchers interact constantly with real people who need the results of their work
  • A multidisciplinary team of Jackson nurses, therapists, and other healthcare professionals working with physicians from the University of Miami Health System to create successful outcomes
  • Our patients’ average daily improvement in function is higher than the national average and our patient satisfaction rates are among the highest in the nation
  • Shorter average length of stay – our patients leave our inpatient facilities sooner and progress to our outpatient program or can go back home quicker
  • Patients are far more likely than the national average to be discharged directly home rather than going to another medical setting
