The Jackson Health System expects to close on Friday on its $38.5 million purchase of 27 acres of land in Doral to build a future healthcare facility.

Jackson Health System CEO Carlos Migoya announced the imminent purchase during a report to the Miami-Dade County Commission’s Economic Prosperity Committee on Thursday.

The future facility, called Jackson West, will include a children’s outpatient clinic, an emergency room, an urgent care center, and other facilities. It will be built at 7800 Northwest 29th Street. The land is currently owned by AAAA Universe LLC, managed by Kiran Patel, which bought it for $37.25 million in July 2007. An AAAA Universe electronics and appliance store currently operates on the site.

Money for the land purchase will come from an $830 million general obligation bond approved by Miami-Dade County voters in 2013 to expand Jackson Memorial Hospital.
