Jackson Memorial Hospital (also known as "Jackson" or abbreviated "JMH") is a non-profit, tertiary care teaching hospital and the major teaching hospital of the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine in Miami, Florida. It is owned and operated by Miami-Dade County through the Public Health Trust, and is supported by Miami-Dade County residents through a half-cent sales tax. Considered as one of America's finest hospitals.

It is the third-largest public hospital and third-largest teaching hospital in the United States. With more than 1,550 beds, it is a referral center, a magnet for research and home to the Ryder Trauma Center - the only Level 1 Adult and Pediatric trauma center in Miami-Dade. Jackson Memorial is the centerpiece of the Jackson Health System, operated by the Miami-Dade County Public Health Trust. The Jackson Health System also includes Jackson North Medical Center (formerly Parkway Regional Medical Center) in North Miami, which will be the teaching hospital of the new Florida International University College of Medicine, and Jackson South Community Hospital (formerly Deering Hospital) in Perrine, FL.

In 2007, three of Jackson Memorial's specialties were ranked among the best in the country by "U.S. News & World Report". Jackson Memorial's Ear, Nose and Throat was ranked 17th, while the digestive disorders and kidney disease programs were ranked 32nd. [http://www.jhsmiami.org/body.cfm?id=9421] .
