Ranked as One of the World’s Best Hospitals by Newsweek Magazine

National magazine Newsweek named Jupiter Medical Center one of the World’s Best Hospitals for 2021 in its annual ranking of 164,500 hospitals around the globe and over 6,000 throughout the U.S. According to Newsweek, the hospitals depicted on its highly anticipated annual ranking rise above the rest in numerous areas including consistent medical excellence, renowned physicians, top nursing care, support staff expertise, and state-of-the-art technology. Criteria used to create this ranking includes hospital recommendations from health care professionals, patient experience surveys and key performance indicators for patient safety and treatment quality.

5-Star Rating by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services awarded Jupiter Medical Center a 5-star rating for Overall Hospital Quality. The 5-star ranking is a result of measuring a variety of rigorous CMS standards across seven areas of quality. The agency uses summary star ratings – one to five stars, with five being the best – on its Hospital Compare website to help patients and families evaluate health care options in a given geographic area. The Hospital Compare overall hospital rating summarizes more than 50 quality measures into a single star rating for each hospital. Scores for mortality, safety of care, readmission, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care, and efficient use of medical imaging are assessed. Jupiter Medical Center has consistently ranked the highest among hospitals in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast and is the only hospital in the region to receive a 5-Star Rating.

Winner in Four “Best of” Categories in the Palm Beach Post Community Choice Awards

Readers of the Palm Beach Post—with a Sunday circulation of over 140,000—selected Jupiter Medical Center as the Best Hospital, Best Emergency Room, Best Heart Center and Best Place to Have a Baby in its annual 2021 Palm Beach Post Best of Palm Beach County Community Choice Awards. The daily newspaper’s annual awards require voters to actively register and cast their vote online to select the best businesses across a number of industries including healthcare.

Leapfrog Group Hospital Safety Grade “A”

Jupiter Medical Center has been awarded the top safety rating by The Leapfrog Group, a respected independent watchdog organization of more than 2,600 acute-care hospitals across the nation. This Grade “A” safety rating is the sixth in a row by the nationally recognized organization and is considered “the gold standard of patient safety.” Developed under the guidance of a national panel of experts, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to acute-care hospitals. The methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public. After measurements of medical-error prevention, injuries, accidents, infections and other patient safety issues are analyzed, each hospital is given an A, B, C, D or F grade.

“Given the enormous obstacles presented by the Covid-19 pandemic,” says Amit Rastogi, MD, MHCM, CEO of Jupiter Medical Center, “these recognitions serve as tremendous testaments to the commitment of our renowned physicians, expert medical staff and administrators, as well as our continued investment in the most advanced technologies in medicine.”
