To further enhance the Mandel JCC of the Palm Beaches’ (JCC) mission
to provide health and wellness initiatives to members, the community center
has partnered with Jupiter Medical Center (JMC) to create a highly personalized
health, wellness and fitness program at its Palm Beach Gardens campus,
located at 5221 Hood Road. JMC brings 35 years of experience to the collaboration.
The JCC currently offers dozens of fitness classes, health and wellness
events and more.
A key component to the partnership is the full-time JMC Health & Wellness
Navigator, Tiffany Jones, on-site Monday through Friday to interact with
JCC members, answer questions, create wellness action plans, and keep
interested members on track with their goals. Jones is a certified health
education specialist from Washington D.C.
"The addition of a JMC Health & Wellness Navigator and the other
services JMC will provide will enable members to take their journey to
wellness to the next level. They have the resources, and now they can
receive expert advice on a regular basis to enhance and execute their
wellness plans, all in a convenient setting." - Mindy Hanken, President and CEO of the Mandel JCC Palm Beach Gardens.
The Health and Wellness Navigator promotes, grows, and develops health,
wellness, and fitness classes and programs for the JCC members and functions
as the primary liaison between members and the extensive roster of physicians,
clinicians, and medical services available at Jupiter Medical Center.
The navigator coordinates interactions to the appropriate health care
providers at JMC after assessing members’ needs through surveys
and health risk assessments.
