Jackson Memorial Hospital is moving forward with its plans to build a $174 million paralysis rehabilitation hospital on its Miami Health District campus.

Jackson submitted a building permit for the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center For The Miami Project To Cure Paralysis at UHealth/Jackson Memorial Medical Center, according to the city of Miami’s building department. The permit is pending approval.

In February, the hospital began knocking down the Institute and Institute Annex buildings on the west side of the Jackson campus at 1611 Northwest 12th Avenue in Allapattah, according to a press release. The new 10-story, 225,000-square-foot building is expected to open in 2020.

The hospital, which nearly went bankrupt in 2011, will fund construction with a $25 million donation from health care philanthropist Christine E. Lynn and part of an $830 million general bond obligation Miami-Dade County voters passed in 2013. The bond included about $500 million for construction.

The rehab center will feature a 100-bed private-room facility and clinical care and research done with the University of Miami.

A spokesperson for the project could not immediately be reached for comment.
