JUPITER, FLA. (January 6, 2015) – Jupiter Medical Center today announced that in addition to its Military Trail location, it is opening a new urgent care center located at 1335 West Indiantown Road. Both centers are expertly staffed and fully equipped to provide comprehensive care under the direction of Matthew Capuano, MD, medical director for urgent care.

After purchasing the Indiantown Road location and completely remodeling it, doors will open on January 7, 2015. Both sites offer complete urgent care health services including on-site laboratory testing and digital x-rays to enable the rapid diagnosis and treatment of urgent medical conditions and minor trauma. Community members will be able to obtain convenient care that is backed by a major medical center, making it possible to fast-track any advanced testing that is needed such as ultrasounds, MRIs and CTs, to name a few.

“We are committed to ensuring families in our community have convenient access to immediate care of the highest quality,” said Jupiter Medical Center’s President and Chief Executive Officer, John D. Couris. “Our urgent care centers are the only facilities in Jupiter backed by a world-class hospital system. That means our patients get the best care possible.”

Leading the charge for Jupiter Medical Center’s Urgent Care is the newly appointed medical director, Matthew Capuano, MD. Board-certified in family practice and with a fellowship in sports medicine, Dr. Capuano earned his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine and his undergraduate degree from Rochester Institute of Technology. He completed his residency at Family Medicine University of Rochester Medical Center and his fellowship with Primary Care Sports Medicine University of Rochester Medical Center.

“We have two state-of-the-art centers to provide care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries that can’t or shouldn’t wait until your primary care provider’s office opens for you to receive treatment,” said Matthew Capuano, MD. “What makes us different from other providers is our high standards of care. Patients can feel secure knowing their lab tests and 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 specialists who are ranked among the region’s best.”
