The Mastroianni Family Foundation Donates $3 Million to Jupiter Medical Center

JUPITER, Fla. – Like father, like sons. Nicholas Mastroianni II and his sons, Nicholas Mastroianni III and Anthony, not only work side by side at their family-owned, international development and finance company, but they also work together to give back to the community. This week, the men, their wives, Jessica and Sara, and their sister, Audrey Mastroianni, participated in a groundbreaking ceremony at the hospital to celebrate the Mastrioianni Family Foundation’s generous donation of $3 million to establish Jupiter Medical Center’s much-needed Pediatric Emergency Department. The new facility will be named the Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department.

“As a father of three young girls, the well-being of my children is always on my mind. If your child is sick or injured and needs emergency services, I want them to get the best treatment possible. With this donation, we hope we can make the emergency room experience less intimidating for parents and their young children by separating them from the adult emergency room and having dedicated pediatric physicians available 24/7,” said Mastroianni III.

The 6,300-square-foot Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department will be located next to the hospital’s current emergency room, but will offer services in a more child-friendly environment. The unit will feature eight pediatric treatment rooms, a dedicated family waiting area, pediatric triage rooms to reduce wait times, and indoor play areas to alleviate anxiety.

Along with these amenities, there will always be a pediatrician on-site, and patients will have access to a team of pediatric-trained doctors and nurses equipped to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical problems. Patients can also receive pediatric specialist consults, as well as inpatient care through the De George Pediatric Inpatient Unit, when needed. Parents can be assured their children will receive world-class care from Jupiter Medical Center and its pediatric partner, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. “As a non-profit hospital we rely heavily on support from the community, which allows us to deliver top-quality health care,” added Liv Vesely, President of Jupiter Medical Center Foundation. “With the creation of the Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department, parents won’t have to travel to other parts of South Florida to get pediatric emergency care for their kids.”

The Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department is expected to open in late 2018. Mastroianni II said, “I’m humbled to be a part of this new era at Jupiter Medical Center. My family wants to make sure other families feel more comfortable and at ease when making a visit to the ER with young children.”
