Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center
for the Miami Project To Cure Paralysis At Uhealth/Jackson Memorial
Nick and Marc Buoniconti, University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala, Jackson Health System President and CEO Carlos A. Migoya, and other dignitaries gathered on the morning of April 29 to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth/Jackson Memorial. Mrs. Lynn’s $25 million donation helped spearhead the fundraising effort for the center.
Miami-Dade voters in 2013 overwhelmingly supported a general obligation bond to upgrade Jackson’s infrastructure and build new facilities, which provided additional funds for the rehabilitation center.
Once completed, the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center will offer state-of-the-art rehabilitation that will unite the spinal cord and brain injury clinical, basic science and translational research excellence of the University of Miami’s Miami Project and Jackson Memorial.
Following the ceremony, Alan and Michael Stillman of Quality Meats Restaurant Miami Beach hosted a celebration in honor of Christine Lynn, Nick and Marc Buoniconti and The Buoniconti Fund.
