JUPITER, FLA. (September 28, 2017) – Jupiter Medical Center opens
a new urgent care center on Thursday, October 5, at 625 North Flagler
Drive in West Palm Beach, giving area residents and businesses access
to the same high-quality urgent care and outpatient services that their
neighbors to the north enjoy.
Located on the first floor of the new Jupiter Medical Center Mount Sinai
New York Plaza – formerly known as the Bank of America Centre –
the new urgent care center offers fast and affordable walk-in service
for minor emergencies, injuries and illnesses.
“We are committed to ensuring our community has access to the highest
quality of affordable and accessible care,” said Steve Seeley, interim
president and chief executive officer of Jupiter Medical Center. “Unlike
other urgent care centers, Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care locations
are backed by the hospital that has the highest patient satisfaction in
the region, and quality and safety scores that rank nationally.”
Patients will receive care for everything from the common cold, the flu
and sinus infections to cuts, burns, sprains, strains and more. The center
also provides on-site laboratory testing, digital X-rays and additional
services 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, travel vaccines
or preoperative clearance. In addition, the center offers companies and
employers in the bustling downtown West Palm business district convenient
access to pre-employment screenings and medical examinations.
“Our Urgent Care Centers are the cornerstone of our convenient care
offerings. They are designed to meet a myriad of health needs for our
busy community,” explained Judy Magalhaes, vice president, Ambulatory
Care. “Patients can also feel secure knowing 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 and Mount Sinai New York specialists who are ranked among the region’s
The urgent care center strengthens the partnership between Jupiter Medical
Center and Mount Sinai New York, who joined forces in 2014 and recently
took up residence in the Jupiter Medical Center Mount Sinai New York Plaza.
Together, they bring a range of health care services to those who live
or work downtown, as well as nearby residents of Palm Beach Island.
The Mount Sinai Doctors Palm Beach practice will be offering world-class
care in several specialty areas. Internal medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology,
dermatology, endocrinology and ophthalmology services will be provided
by high quality, board certified, well trained physicians who will continue
the Mount Sinai New York tradition of providing personalized care to both
local patients and those who travel between New York and Palm Beach County.
"Mount Sinai New York is proud to partner with Jupiter Medical Center
in providing residents of Palm Beach County enhanced access to multi-specialty
health care services,” said Arthur Klein, MD, President of the Mount
Sinai Health Network. “We have successfully recruited physicians
from some of the most prestigious national medical centers to join us
in this important enterprise.”
This is Jupiter Medical Center’s fourth urgent care location and
similarly, provides immediate and affordable walk-in care after hours,
as well as weekends and holidays. All four centers are open Monday through
Saturday, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and on Sundays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
