When Seconds Count, Experience Matters

At Jackson Memorial Hospital

Ryder Trauma Center is a Level I adult and pediatric trauma center in Miami-Dade County and treats an average of 4,000 patients each year, making it one of the busiest trauma centers in South Florida. Since Ryder Trauma Center opened in 1992, we have provided world-class clinical care to residents of Miami-Dade County, nationally, and internationally. Our team of trauma/critical care surgeons and anesthesiologists are available 24-hours a day, and we have never diverted a patient to another center.

We provide a comprehensive continuum of care to the entire community by facilitating resuscitation, emergency surgical intervention, intensive care, rehabilitation, and outpatient care services. The specialized training, experience, and skills of our world-renowned surgeons, physicians, nurses and staff are responsible for saving lives and hastening patient recoveries at every stage of the process.

A History Of Trauma Care In Our Community

It all started on June 25, 1918 when the new Miami City Hospital (now Jackson Memorial Hospital) opened its doors and began providing trauma care to the community.
