Certainty in Uncertain Times

For more than 40 years, Jupiter Medical Center has been a driving force in our community, helping families celebrate many of life’s greatest moments and overcome some of their most significant challenges.

From the birth of a new baby to overcoming cancer, Jupiter Medical Center and the remarkable medical experts and team members that make it so great, remain an institution you can be certain to rely on.

Today, the COVID-19 pandemic is posing a new challenge, one that is bringing with it a sense of uncertainty and questions about what the coming weeks and months may hold.

As always, Jupiter Medical Center is here to help our community navigate this crisis.

Recognized as a leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction, we are one of the first hospitals in the state of Florida to implement the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines for the diagnosis, screening and treatment of COVID-19 patients.

Since that time, our entire organization has worked diligently to initiate a comprehensive plan and series of preventative measures to ensure that we are capable of screening, isolating and treating patients with COVID-19 while also protecting the health and well-being of other patients in our care and our fellow team members.

These preparations have included multidisciplinary training drills and strictly adhering to the proper use of personal protective equipment in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended guidelines.

In addition to our already rigorous infection prevention procedures, we are conducting additional cleaning and disinfecting of all surfaces and in all patient areas, including the use of Tru-D SmartUVC ultra-violet disinfection robots.

We are screening everyone who enters the hospital, have amended our visitor policy, and are using telehealth to connect our care providers with patients through video chat whenever possible.

We have also established an Incident Command Center to streamline communications, patient management and the allocation of personnel, resources and equipment.

Jupiter Medical Center is also at the forefront of identifying and acquiring the latest advancements in new testing modalities, innovative treatments and state-of-the-art technologies to aggressively identify and treat this disease.

With these actions, you can be certain in our ability to serve the patients of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast with the selflessness, compassion and expertise that you have come to expect from Jupiter Medical Center day after day, year after year.

Through It All, We Are Here to Serve

Our physicians, clinical teams and various experts will continue to deliver the highest quality care in the areas of cancer, cardiology, stroke, diabetes, maternity care, orthopedics, pediatric care, wound care and other illnesses or injuries.

We are here to serve and continue our legacy to providing compassionate, expert medical care to those who need it most.

Because a life-threatening condition, injury or illness will not wait for a pandemic to pass.

As we face this unprecedented challenge together, we would like to recognize the Jupiter Medical Center doctors, nurses and the rest of our #HealthcareHeroes for their remarkable dedication.

Our commitment to our patients — and each other — is a certainty, even in uncertain times.

Thank you for your kind well wishes, generous donations and unwavering support for this great institution and all of our people in service to you – our community.
