Construction is complete on the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center for the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth/Jackson Memorial, located in Miami, Florida. The project is one of several being managed under the Jackson Health System’s $1.4-billion Miracle-Building Bond Program, which is transforming the patient-centered Jackson Health System by modernizing all of its facilities to better meet the needs of Miami-Dade County residents and international patients who travel to Miami because of Jackson’s medical expertise.

Responsibilities included selecting the construction manager and design team, project management and planning, process improvement consulting, dashboard and e-Builder support, construction coordination, risk analysis/mitigation, cost estimating and working with local and state authorities through the approvals process.
