UM biomedical center for research can change the image of Miami


Forget of the typical image of Miami associated with palm tree, beaches, and bodies tanned. Inside some years, Miami willl be able to be associated with robes of laboratory, microscopes and scientific discoveries. The change would be owed to A new Center of BIOTECHINCAL RESEACH of the University of Miami, which will be built near the precinct of the School of Medicine of the university in Allapattah. The leaders of the city expect that the central multimillionaire inject money and works to the zone, one of the poorest of Miami. At present, the University of Miami (UM) is the largest private employer of the city, since gives work to 5,000 people, and injects more than $3,900,000 million in the community. In turn, UM seeks to become one of the large hospitals of the world. The university already is building or planning the construction of three buildings in the School of Medicine Miller, with an investment of $550 million on the part of the university, explained Sergio Rodriguez, vice president of planning and construction in UM. The first structure, an institute of clinical investigation of 344,000 square feet, will open its doors in April of the 2006. Another building with the last technology of scientific investigation of 200,000 square feet will be inaugurated in July of the 2007. The third building, a new hospital, still is low planning besides these three works, 1.4 million square feet of structures will be built that will include centers of investigation and offices that will be busy by private enterprises these structures are found in the phases of preliminary planning and not yet has itself determined exactly what uses will have the buildings. This will depend on what businesses they decide to be moved al central, explained Rodriguez, who added that there is not shortage of businesses that quieran to occupy the new installations. ''La university has seen a lot of interest on the part of companies that want headquarters in the southeast of the country'', affirmed Rodriguez.Several of the businesses they are international, added the expert in real estate agency. In February, the university will carry out a meeting with the investors that be interested. Near that date they will begin the works of the new scientific center. The project will be able to carry out thanks to an exchange of lands between Camillus House and the university, in a deal that the mayor of the city, Manny Díaz, has called ççun perfect marriage''. The agent Angel González, whose district includes Allapattah, assured that agreed to that Camillus House was installed near its district only by the change of lands with UM. ''Este project will bring many jobs, and a great economic development in the zone'', assured the agent. To attend al economic resurgence of the zone, the city thinks to invest in the infrastructure of the area, and anticipates to include a bus that connect the hospital with key points of the city, explained the mayor. The center of investigations is indispensable so that UM grow in the world of the scientific investigation, assured the president of UM, Donna Shalala. 'All the better universities of the country have this investigation centers type, where the private enterprises can come to do business with ours scientific'', affirmed Shalala, who added that the center will be finished inside two or three years nevertheless, besides converting to Miami in one of the foci of the medical investigation, the center will also be an economic motor for the zone, indicated the president. With the new installations, added Shalala, the university thinks to duplicate the number of jobs that offers --from 5,000 to 10,000-- during the next decade. The works Iran since the most specialized and technical, to personnel of maintenance and cleaning. Rodriguez emphasized that the new center will also include offices where will be able to install local business.

UM hires architect for $320 million medical building

By Charlotte Libov
With an architect now on board, the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine is moving forward with its $320 million medical-practice building, which consolidates two hospitals and is part of the largest expansion in the medical school's history, according to Ronald Bogue, assistant vice president of UM facilities and support services.
George Valcarcel, an architect in the Miami office of Perkins + Will, will lead the project locally, according to Dave Johnson, a principal with the international architectural firm's Atlanta office.
"We're very excited about this project. We're in the initial planning stages," Mr. Johnson said. The firm, best-known for its health-care and school facilities, designed the diagnostic treatment center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Mariner's Hospital in the Upper Keys and senior high schools in South Miami-Dade and Broward County.
The medical-practice building, slated for completion in 2009, is one of three new UM medical building projects along with a new parking garage and air-conditioning plant going up in the Civic Center area. But these projects pale in scope to the Miami Bioscience Center, which UM officials hope will propel South Florida into the ranks of the nation's elite medical research communities.
According to Mr. Bogue, negotiations among UM, state and Miami city officials are continuing on the site, adjacent to the medical campus, where the 1.4-million-square-foot bioscience research center is to rise.
"We are negotiating with the city and the state. Probably we will have that wrapped up in 60 days," he said. "If everything goes well, it will be another huge project."
In the meantime, UM medical school building officials have plenty to keep them busy.
First, there's the medical-practice building, which includes a 144-bed hospital. It will consolidate the university's Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, 1550 NW 10th Ave., with the Anne Bates Leach Eye Hospital, currently at 900 NW 17th St. The facility is a replacement hospital, Mr. Bogue said, meaning that no new beds will be added.
Preliminary plans, he said, call for three or four stories to house outpatient facilities and medical offices. Above that are to be two towers containing operating rooms, intensive care facilities and patient rooms.
Some offices in the current cancer center will be relocated to the new building and others will be moved, Mr. Bogue said. The center now houses the American Cancer Society Winn-Dixie Hope Lodge, the Ronald McDonald House and a magnetic resonance imaging center.
"We were dispersed all over the campus and all around the neighborhood," Mr. Bogue said. "Now we will have comprehensive coverage of all of these different specialties. We like to say it will be one-stop health care."
Second is the new $90 million clinical research institute, which, according to Mr. Bogue, is about 80% complete and is expected to be finished in May.
"We were delayed by the hurricane by a few days," he said. He noted, though, that the building was designed according to the most recent building codes, and sustained no damage from the storm.
"We were very fortunate," he said. The only minor delays were due to brief shortages of workers and materials. "That project is moving along almost on time and on schedule. We are anxious to increase our square footage for our support staff and research community."
That facility is to have a 15-story building and an 11-story, 1,424-space parking garage with a wellness center on the two top floors.
The third project is UM's $70 million wet lab and research building, at the northwest corner of Northwest Tenth Avenue and 15th Street, which has received approval from the city and is on target for its summer 2007 completion date.
"The building's footers are being put in even as we speak," Mr. Bogue said. The 180,000-square-foot, nine-floor building, he said, will be outfitted with long sinks, gas and "everything else that researchers need."
But that's not all. In addition, the medical school plans a $25 million, 1,500-car garage and a new $23 million air conditioning plant. Both, he said, should be completed within about 18 months.
"This is the biggest expansion that this school has seen in its history," Mr. Bogue said. "Hopefully, we've done our homework, we have a good master plan, and it's coming together."

On the new UM Medical Building to go up in the Civic Center area:

UM is about to get a hospital of its own

University of Miami trustees are expected to approve a new $460 million medical center on the UM/Jackson Memorial Hospital campus.

BY JACOB GOLDSTEIN
jgoldstein@MiamiHerald.com

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine plans to build a 14-story, $460 million hospital and medical center on the campus the school shares with Jackson Memorial Hospital. Today, UM trustees are expected to approve the project -- the most expensive in the university's history.

Dr. Pascal Goldschmidt, the medical school's new dean, said the center is essential in recruiting star doctors and building a national reputation for the medical school.

''Look at everywhere there is a major medical center: Johns Hopkins, Duke . . . Harvard, Stanford. All of these institutions have their own hospital,'' he said.

For more than 50 years, UM doctors have been based at Jackson Memorial, the county's public hospital. Jackson pays UM an annual fee -- $121 million this year -- for the services of more than 700 UM doctors.

While it is common for medical schools to be affiliated with public hospitals, most top schools also have their own hospital. These hospitals can generate millions in profits, which funds research.

''World-class doctors like to come to an environment where the university has its own hospital,'' Goldschmidt said.

COMPARISON

The hospital will have 144 beds, compared with 1,500 beds at Jackson, and UM doctors will continue to do much of their work at Jackson.

Jackson officials say they've been promised the new center will not siphon off any of Jackson's insured patients. Those patients subsidize the care provided to the poor and uninsured.

In fiscal year 2005, Jackson spent $493 million on ''charity care'' for those who could not pay and received $381 million in public funding, hospital officials said. The $123 million in profits from treating private patients at Jackson made up the difference.

''My concern is . . . if they have a hospital where they have to meet their bills, they are going to put a patient in that hospital first, and put one in Jackson second,'' said Larry Handfield, chairman of the Public Health Trust, which oversees Jackson.

``The bottom line is without the commercial-paying patients we would not be able to keep the doors open.''

''Not a single patient that will go to this hospital will be a patient who would have gone to Jackson Memorial,'' Goldschmidt said.

He said the hospital will allow UM doctors to return to the medical school campus without taking business from Jackson, which usually operates at or near capacity.

''They simply cannot take care of all of our private-pay patients,'' said Dr. Mark Soloway, UM's chief urologist. ``There are not enough operating rooms.''

Soloway said he sees 30 percent to 40 percent of his insured patients at Cedars Medical Center, a private hospital. He says those patients are the ones he is likely to begin seeing at the new hospital.

''If they're right, it's kumbaya and everybody wins,'' Jackson CEO Marvin O'Quinn said. ``If they're wrong, I'm prepared for it.''

O'Quinn won't say precisely what his preparations entail, but he hinted the hospital may expand its staff of doctors not affiliated with the university.

WEALTHY PATIENTS

Jackson has recently begun a push to recruit more insured and private-pay patients; a center for international patients opened last month to offer ''concierge'' services to wealthy patients who fly in from overseas -- and typically pay cash.

The new medical center is scheduled to open in 2010 on the UM/Jackson campus, on Northwest 14th Street just east of 12th Avenue. There will be a wide range of outpatient services; inpatient services will likely focus on a few specialties, including cancer, urology, orthopedics and some cardiac services, Goldschmidt said. State regulations could allow the hospital to grow to more than 250 beds in the decade after it opens.

UM officials expect the new center, which will be financed by selling bonds, not only to help them build the school's reputation, but also to generate cash, which can be plowed into research.

''The profit these days, the margin, is in hospitals, not in physician practices,'' said Minor Anderson, associate vice president of clinical affairs for the University of Miami Medical Group.

Anderson estimates the new facility could gross $500 million per year.

UM has been seeking its own hospital for several years. The university tried unsuccessfully to buy Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables in 2003 and was briefly in negotiations with Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach in 2004.

Handfield opposed the Mount Sinai deal, arguing it would divert paying patients from Jackson. He said the new hospital presents less of a threat, because it will be far smaller than Mount Sinai, which has about 1,000 beds. He calls relations with UM ''excellent,'' but stops short of welcoming the new building.

''Our mission and their mission will diverge at times,'' he said. ``This may be one of those times. If we had our choice, we would prefer not to see them building their own hospital.''
