Construction work has begun on a new training centre in Miami Gardens, Florida for the NFL’s Miami Dolphins.
The Miami Dolphins announced the extension of a multi-year partnership with Baptist Health to construct a state-of-the-art training complex and sports performance clinic.
The $135 million newly named Baptist Health Training Complex will open in Spring 2021.
The partnership with Baptist Health is an extension of a decades-long relationship with the Miami Dolphins, with the entity serving as the Official Sports Medicine Provider as well as the Official Wellness Provider of the Miami Dolphins.
Baptist Health also is a proud partner of the Miami Dolphins Foundation working together on a series of initiatives around the health and safety of South Florida students, coaches and parents to grow youth football participation in South Florida.
Miami Dolphins chief executive officer Tom Garfinkel said:
We’re excited to bring the home of the Miami Dolphins players and coaches to Miami Gardens and back to Miami-Dade County.
The Baptist Health Training Complex will be a state-of-the-art football facility with Baptist Health providing a world-class sports performance clinic available to the public so people can have access to the same care the players get.
The 217,200ft2 complex (125,000ft2 training facility and 92,200ft2 indoor field) is more than 50,000ft2 larger than the team’s current facility.
The Baptist Health Training Complex will house an innovation hub for new technology, spatial computing and a walkthrough space, a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy area, fuel bar, dedicated recovery area including cryotherapy and isolation tanks, an athletic training room with expansive rehabilitation space, meeting rooms with direct access to the fields, a two-storey weight room with a cardio deck, locker rooms, equipment space, dining hall, auditorium, an outdoor practice area with two full natural grass fields, full indoor practice facility, a lobby with a grand staircase, office area, press area, fan amenities and a broadcast area.
