AHS Residential donated ten apartment homes at the recently inaugurated AHS at Coral Reef community for Jackson Health employees fighting the Coronavirus pandemic. Fully furnished and with utilities included, the donated apartments will be used by doctors, nurses, and other frontline healthcare workers who need a safe place to rest between shifts.
“These heroes put their lives on the line for our community every day and deserve all the support we can give them. That starts with a comfortable place to sleep.”

“For weeks, our healthcare workers have been taking care of us. It is time we took care of them. AHS Residential is happy to provide our neighbors at Jackson Health with apartments that allow them to rest and recharge while keeping their families safe,” said Ernesto Lopes, Chief Executive Officer of AHS Residential. “These heroes put their lives on the line for our community every day and deserve all the support we can give them. That starts with a comfortable place to sleep.”
“Every day, another South Florida business steps up to be part of the solution for Jackson Health System’s nurses, therapists, doctors, and other caregivers,” said Carlos A. Migoya, Jackson’s president and CEO. “Donated accommodations like these let our staff focus on patient care without worry about bringing home the novel coronavirus to their family.”
The donation was coordinated by Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis Moss, who approached AHS about the need to provide housing for frontline staff.
“We are thrilled that AHS Residential stepped up to support the healthcare heroes at Jackson,” said Moss. “We need to make sure they have a safe place to call home while they continue to keep COVID-19 under control. I will continue connecting those in need together with those, like AHS Residential, who want to generously donate resources to help.”
