JUPITER, FLA. (January 29, 2015) – Jupiter Medical Center today announced that Jupiter Medical Center Auxiliary, the hospital’s volunteer group, recently gave Jupiter Medical Center a $100,000 donation.

This generous donation is funding the purchase of an infra-red technology that will assist in the cleaning of patient rooms. Tru-D, short for Total Room Ultraviolet Disinfector, is the first and only portable UV disinfection device using chemical-free, advanced germicidal infection technology. It is a portable robot that disinfects hospital rooms using ultraviolet light. The gift was given at the Annual Luncheon, which was held at Admiral’s Cove this year.

Steve Seeley, V.P., Chief Operating Officer and Chief Nursing Officer accepted the donation on behalf of the medical center. “The Jupiter Medical Center Auxiliary is a critically important partner in helping us reimagine the way we provide care to our community”, said Seeley, “We are grateful to the Auxiliary for tirelessly supporting our medical center and providing this cutting-edge technology to advance patient care and safety.”

About Jupiter Medical Center Auxiliary

The Jupiter Medical Center Auxiliary is Jupiter Medical Center’s volunteer group. It is made up of over 700 volunteers who perform a variety of tasks, from helping family members in waiting rooms to administrative functions, all of which serve patient needs. Through the management of the on-site Gift shop, the Thrift Shop, and fundraising events, the Auxiliary provides immeasurable support to the community. Furthermore, the Auxiliary is Jupiter Medical Center’s largest source of monetary donations. Since the start of the Auxiliary in 1976, the group has raised more than $11 million for Jupiter Medical Center. Without the generosity of the Auxiliary and the funds it has raised, the hospital would not have been able to take on important projects like renovating the De George Pavilion and refurbishing patient rooms.
