Ryder Trauma Center Celebrates 25th Anniversary
The event honored trauma center’s founding benefactor, Ryder System.
Ryder Trauma Center, a prestigious Level I adult and pediatric trauma center, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary of saving countless lives – people with devastating injuries after motor vehicle crashes, burns, gun violence and other traumas. On August 3, 1992, Ryder Trauma Center opened just weeks before Hurricane Andrew devastated South Miami-Dade County. The initiative received funding from Ryder System Charitable Foundation who provided a $2.5M naming gift to fill a critical community need. The campaign for Ryder Trauma Center was the start of Jackson Health Foundation.
