Hollywood - Betty Mae Jumper Medical Clinic

The Hollywood Betty Mae Jumper (BMJ) Clinic is located in the Seminole Estates area of the Hollywood Reservation.

The new medical facility pays tribute to Ms. Betty Mae Tiger Jumper, the first Seminole to graduate high school and earn a higher education when she received her nursing degree. Betty Mae Tiger Jumper became the first woman elected to chair the Seminole Tribe of Florida in 1967. She helped organize the constitutional committee and create the constitution of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. She also created the first Seminole newspaper that eventually became the Seminole Tribune, which still publishes today. Betty Mae Tiger Jumper spent most of her adult life, improving and modernizing the Seminole community and their healthcare services.

The new BMJ Clinic has approximately 40,000 Square Feet of interior floor in a two-story building. This modern medical facility provides new and expanded medical services to meet the growing Tribal Community's needs. Services include a dialysis unit, dental clinic, pharmacy, medical adult and pediatric clinics, behavioral health offices, physical therapy, home economics room, and office space for Health and Human Services.

Construction of the new medical facility started in January 2019 and was completed in October 2020.  All services from the old Betty May Jumper Clinic located on Josie Billie Avenue were transferred to the new BMJ Clinic. The old clinic was demolished and the site cleared for future development.
