JUPITER, FLA. (June 9, 2017) – Now residents of northern Palm Beach County have increased access to Jupiter Medical Center’s high quality care, closer to home. The Medical Center opened its third Urgent Care Center at 3250 PGA Boulevard, just across from The Gardens Mall. The location is also home to a new center for physical rehabilitation, offering patients unparalleled convenience for their health and wellness needs.
“We are committed to ensuring our community has access to immediate care of the highest quality,” said Jupiter Medical Center President and Chief Executive Officer, John D. Couris. “Our urgent care centers offer a unique level of care because they’re the only facilities in northern Palm Beach County backed by a world-class hospital system. By adding rehabilitation services at the same location, we are making physical therapy as convenient and accessible as urgent care is today.”
The goal of Jupiter Medical Center’s Urgent Care Centers is to better serve the community with the right medical care at the lowest cost – where and when it is needed most. The hospital’s two centers in Jupiter and the newest location in Palm Beach Gardens provide immediate and affordable walk-in care after hours, on weekends and even holidays. All three centers are open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.; Sundays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Each site offers complete urgent care health services including on-site laboratory testing and x-rays to enable the rapid diagnosis and treatment of urgent medical conditions and minor trauma. Services to support healthier living are also available such as immunizations like flu shots, lab services, travel medicine, pre-employment testing or preoperative clearance.
All three state-of-the-art centers are supervised by physician medical directors and staffed by a team of certified physician assistants, advanced registered nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses, radiology technologists and urgent care technologists who provide assistance with injuries, illnesses, x-rays and more. Unlike other urgent care centers, Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care Centers are backed by the hospital with the highest patient satisfaction in the region, and quality and safety scores that rank nationally.
Community members will be able to obtain convenient care and if necessary our patients have immediate access to the hospital’s wide range of medical services such as physical therapy and advanced imaging like CT scans, ultrasound and MRIs, to name a few.
“It gives me great confidence to know our patients have access to excellent care by a team of very experienced providers at our Urgent Care Centers.” said Laurie Rothman, MD, Medical Director, Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care Center - Palm Beach Gardens. “And patients can feel secure knowing their lab tests and x-rays are read by the same highly qualified staff serving patients in the hospital. Likewise, if patients need specialty care, we can direct them to Jupiter Medical Center specialists who are ranked among the region’s best.”
Outpatient rehabilitation services at the PGA Boulevard center include individualized therapy and programs to help patients reach their maximum functional potential. Physical rehabilitation services are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
