Jackson Health System is planning a $1.4 billion expansion and renovation for its facilities over the next 10 years.

The capital plan comes on top of an $830 million bond approved by voters in 2013. It would include over 200 projects at Jackson’s three campuses and in new locations throughout the county, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

“Our mission is to make sure we provide the best quality health care to every Miami-Dade resident whether they can afford it or not and we want to make sure we provide great facilities as well,” Jackson’s CEO Carlos Migoya said.

The project’s largest components include $117.4 million for a new rehabilitation hospital, a $115.7 million hospital for the Miami Transplant Institute in partnership with the University of Miami, $40 million for a pediatric ambulatory care center, and $40 million to build urgent care centers in multiple locations around the county.
