History of Ryder Trauma Center

Jackson Memorial has been a functioning hospital since 1918, and in 1985, it established itself as a Level 1 trauma center for the region. In 1988, plans for a self-contained trauma center were developed after the formation of the Jackson Health Foundation. Ryder Trauma Center opened its doors in 1992 and is located at Jackson Memorial Hospital, 1800 Northwest 10th Avenue, Miami, Florida 33136.

Since then, Ryder Trauma Center has remained a Level 1 Verified Trauma Center for adult and pediatric trauma. The physicians and medical staff at Ryder Trauma Center offer resuscitation, emergency surgical intervention, intensive care, rehabilitation, and outpatient care services. The medical facility offers a comprehensive care throughout patients’ journeys for patients brought directly to its emergency room and for those transferred from other hospitals, including patients from the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.

Did You Suffer From Medical Malpractice at Ryder Trauma Center?

When you are taken to Ryder Trauma Center, it is often directly after a catastrophic accident or when you require more significant care than a local hospital can provide. During these times, the physicians and medical staff at Ryder Trauma Center are under a great deal of pressure to work quickly. However, speed should never come at the price of patients’ health and safety. If you believe you suffered harm because of a staff member’s medical negligence, call our Ryder Trauma Center accident attorneys as soon as possible. At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., we offer experienced medical malpractice representation following:

To be clear, dealing with a serious side effect or difficult outcome to a medical service is not always a sign of medical malpractice. Side effects and poor outcomes are an unfortunate but consistent part of medicine. To recover compensation based on medical negligence, you must be able to establish that your medical provider failed to uphold their professional standard of care when treating you. To do this, you should work with an experienced attorney.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
