JUPITER, Fla. (December 16, 2016) – For the third time, Jupiter Medical Center has been awarded the Laureate Workplace Enhancement Award, and is the only hospital in Florida to win the award in 2016. This award honors health care organizations that meet the criteria developed by The Jackson Group and have demonstrated significant improvement in 80 percent of their metrics in the survey. Each year, the Jackson Group assesses over 150 hospitals and only four won this year.

“At Jupiter Medical Center patient care is our top priority, and the only way to provide the highest quality care is to ensure our team is in an environment where they can thrive,” said John Couris, CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “I am honored that Jupiter Medical Center has received this award as we strive to achieve even higher levels of excellence.”

To be eligible for the award, a hospital must complete the Work Climate Survey and have a response rate of 68 percent or higher in meeting the criteria established related to their workplace. Work climate surveys were conducted over several years to measure improvements in the work climate and plan for further action in areas in need of continued focus. Jupiter Medical Center demonstrated excellence in the following categories: communication, employee involvement, commitment, and perception of departmental leadership. This award is another indication that Jupiter Medical Center not only brings the highest quality health care to the community, but also provides a working environment that keeps doctors, nurses, and staff happy and productive.
