The Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center
The Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth/Jackson Memorial Medical Center will be one of the world’s premiere rehabilitation hospitals. Adult and pediatric patients with spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries will benefit from the state-of-the-art new, 250,000-square-foot facility, which will include indoor and outdoor spaces for patients; patient “apartments” where patients and caregivers can practice new, safe skills before returning home (such as how to lift your loved one from the bath, navigate household hazards, etc.); simulators for entering, existing, and driving a car; a full aquatic center with underwater treadmill; and many other innovative features. Academic and conference spaces; a fitness center and meditation rooms; and research, diagnostic, and treatment areas are also being planned.
The 100-bed, private-room facility will offer an exemplary inpatient experience for those dealing with some of the most challenging injuries. The Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center will also allow proximity to the necessary rehabilitation that accompanies the multiple clinical trials for those dealing with life-altering spinal cord and brain injuries currently led by Miami Project researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
