Jupiter Medical Center has partnered with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital
to provide world-class pediatric care in northern Palm Beach County. Our
Pediatric Services include a 12 bed inpatient unit, pediatric surgery
suites, a children’s playroom and the Bear’s Den for Resting
(named after Jack “The Golden Bear” Nicklaus).
We recognize that being in the hospital can be a very stressful time for
anyone, especially a child. Our child life specialist is on-site to help
your child navigate the potentially emotionally and physically demanding
process of coping with hospitalization. Child life specialists use their
knowledge and training in child development to educate, prepare and support
children through tests, procedures and the unfamiliar hospital environment.
They also play a vital role in educating caregivers, administrators and
the general public about the needs of children under stress.
Other services include pediatric imaging, pediatric therapy for both inpatients
and outpatients and pediatric emergency services.
