Hurricane Irma


UPDATE: September 14, 2017

I am pleased to report that power has been restored to all patient care areas of the Miami Jewish Health campus.  All of our patients, residents, tenants, and employees continue to be safe and secure.

The Miami Jewish Health team is an awesome group. I am humbled to be involved with such a committed and hard working group completely focused on providing the highest quality of care to those we serve.  We owe you so much gratitude.  I speak on behalf of our patients, residents, tenants, and their families.  You made tremendous sacrifices before, during and after the storm to care for those we are responsible for.  I am honored to be part of this team.

On behalf of Miami Jewish Health, our sincere gratitude to the teams from Florida Power & Light that spent overnight here to get our last building up and running.  Your commitment to restoring full power to our campus is deeply appreciated by all the individuals who reside and work here.  Thank you so much.

To our patients, residents, and families: thank you for your understanding, support and assistance as we moved through this experience.  You know that our sole focus is on taking care of those we are responsible for and your positive encouragement and kind words mean so much to our team.

Jeffrey P. Freimark
President and Chief Executive Officer
