Jupiter, Fla. – Jupiter Medical Center Foundation is more than halfway to a major goal
to enhance health care for residents in South Florida. The Foundation
has raised more than $160 million of its $300 million goal, allowing Jupiter
Medical Center to provide world-class, compassionate health care close to home.
Jupiter Medical Center’s $300 millionVision. Innovation. Impact. Campaign has led to the hospital’s remarkable growth, and demonstrates the
significance of philanthropy in moving the needle toward greater health
care in our region. To meet patients’ health care needs, Jupiter
Medical Center must continue to evolve into a regional medical destination
that is comprised of
Centers of Excellence—world-class clinical programs that are comprehensive and highly
specialized. This includes recruiting first-rate physicians and adopting
a multidisciplinary model of care often found in the nation’s leading
academic medical centers.
“The success of this campaign is due to the generosity of this community.
Residents recognized the need for personalized health care that incorporates
quality, personalized service and safety. They chose to make an investment
in our community, and we will all reap the benefits,” said Liv Vesely,
President of Jupiter Medical Center Foundation.
Timothy and Jayne Donahue Cardiac Surgery Program, launching in 2019, will allow Jupiter Medical Center to perform more
advanced procedures on patients with more serious cardiac issues such
as cardiac bypass and valve replacement and repairs, and advanced interventional
procedures that include Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
and advanced ablations for atrial fibrillation. These procedures achieve
lifesaving results with minimal discomfort, and faster healing times with
lower risk than traditional surgery.
Construction of the
Anderson Family Cancer Institute is well underway. The new, comprehensive cancer institute will provide
convenient access to multidisciplinary, evidence-based cancer care often
found in the nation’s most prestigious health care institutions.
Opening in late 2019, the cancer institute will have the ability to fully
serve patients from diagnosis through treatment.
Jupiter Medical Center was able to fast-track the development and launch of a
Comprehensive Stroke Centeropening in December 2018. The Center will deliver 24/7 rapid, advanced
stroke care for both ischemic (blockages) and hemorrhagic (bleeding) strokes,
utilizing advanced facilities and technologies such as 3-D neurointerventional
biplane angiographic technology. This technology is used for precise diagnosis
of neurological abnormalities and minimally invasive endovascular procedures
that can immediately repair these conditions. 3-D biplane technology also
provides physicians with functional imaging, allowing advanced viewing
and navigation around structures in the brain, providing better patient outcomes.
Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department, opening in April 2019, will deliver emergency care to children in the
community in a convenient, child-friendly setting. Palm Beach County’s
youngest patients will have eight private treatment rooms, a triage area
to decrease wait times, along with a dedicated, round-the-clock pediatrician.
Five-Story Patient Tower will become the new main entrance to the hospital and will house a technologically
advanced patient floor; a dedicated floor for the 16-bed Level II De George
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit outfitted with advanced monitoring, imaging
and respiratory technologies, set to open in September 2019; and the fifth
floor, which will serve as a dedicated Concierge Unit, featuring seven
suites. Each suite will feature a large patient room as well as a private
During the last three years, Jupiter Medical Center has seen a sharp increase
in the number of surgeries performed. Jupiter Medical Center Foundation
is seeking a lead gift to initiate the construction of an elite surgery
institute that will advance surgical care and improve patient outcomes. TheSurgery Institute will include 16 new ORs of the future that will utilize intelligent tools
to improve patient health. These new “Smart” ORs will use
state-of-the-art equipment that is digitally integrated so the patient’s
information will be at the surgeon’s fingertips. Surgeons will be
able to access a patient’s images during surgery, and transmit images
from the operating room to specialists for real-time consultation. The
Institute will also be home to a 1,000-square-foot hybrid OR surgical
theater, featuring technologies such as high-definition cameras and ceiling-mounted
3-D scanners that will enable multidisciplinary teams of surgeons, anesthesiologists,
nurses, interventionalists and technicians to perform both endovascular
and open-heart procedures, shifting between techniques in the same session
