Jupiter Medical Center Opens The Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center

JUPITER, FLA. (November 30, 2015) – Jupiter Medical Center today announced the opening of the Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center, the hospital’s newly remodeled health and rehabilitation facility. The Center was made possible through a lead gift from Lynne and Robert Grossman and is named in honor of their son, Cary.

A hospital-based health club, the Center is uniquely designed to meet the needs of the whole community with facilities and programs for patients working their way back from an injury, illness or total joint replacement, as well as anyone looking to improve or maintain their health and even prevent disease. Designed with a spa setting in mind, it includes the only full-size indoor heated pool in North Palm Beach County, as well as exercise classes, massages and other spa offerings and a wide array of rehabilitation services. A new approach to health and fitness, the staff includes exercise physiologists and other specialists, dedicated to the integration of prevention and health education with physical fitness and rehabilitation services.

“At Jupiter Medical Center, the health and wellness of our entire community is our top priority,” said John Couris, President and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “The Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center enhances our ability to provide state-of-the-art rehabilitation which gets patients back to their everyday lives. We’ve also invested in this Center because we believe we must play an active role and provide the resources needed to help everyone in our community achieve new levels of well-being. Our ultimate goal is keeping people healthy and out of the hospital.”

For rehabilitation patients, the Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center will bridge the gap between therapy and wellness—taking patients through their course of rehab and then transitioning them into a general maintenance health and wellness routine—all under the same roof. The Center will offer a broad selection of rehabilitation services including perioperative orthopedic rehabilitation, physical therapy, speech and occupational therapy and aquatic therapy.

“The Center offers our patients a variety of individualized rehabilitation services and therapies—allowing us to do more than ever before—with the goal of helping each of them reach their maximum functional potential” said, Frank DeLucia, MD, MS, Medical Director, Outpatient Rehabilitation Services.

Reduced-cost medical fitness memberships are available for people who have had bariatric surgery or completed the weight loss management or diabetes program at Jupiter Medical Center. The medical fitness program also provides a fitness facility that meets the special needs of cancer survivors and those who have completed Phase II cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation programs.

In addition, the Center serves as a full-service fitness center for the entire community and has been designed to evoke an upscale spa feel that is both warm and inviting. The Center will offer several health and wellness services such as access to state-of-the-art exercise equipment, personal training services, group fitness classes, yoga, pilates, mindfulness-based stress reduction and spa services, including massage.

The Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center is located at 1004 South Old Dixie Highway in Jupiter, on the Jupiter Medical Center campus. The facility is open to the general public with memberships available for purchase. Hours are Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. To learn more about membership and Center offerings, please call: 561-263-5775 or visit: jupitermed.com/health.
