Jupiter Medical Center Receives Joint Commission Certification for Hip, Knee and Shoulder Replacement and Spine Surgery

Jupiter Medical Center has once again received accreditation from The Joint Commission in hip, knee and shoulder replacement, as well as spine surgery. The medical center is at the leading-edge of orthopedic care, with a long history of quality results. It is the only hospital in Palm Beach and Martin counties to have certification in all areas of joint replacement and spine surgery. When assessing an institution, the Joint Commission looks at the quality of patient care and performance based on a set of objective standards developed using input from consumers, government agencies, health care professionals, providers and employers. Accreditation as a hospital and certification for programs by The Joint Commission demonstrates that Jupiter Medical Center has achieved, and in many cases exceeded, world-class standards for safe and effective care. Jupiter Medical Center takes a comprehensive approach to orthopedic and spine care to ensure that every aspect of a patient’s care is coordinated. The medical center’s Anderson Family Orthopedic and Spine Center of Excellence is a dedicated unit where surgery, recovery and rehabilitation are brought together for collaborative, seamless patient care.
