Jupiter Medical Center Adjusts Visitor Policy, Elective Procedures

Jupiter Medical Center today announced an update to its visitor policy to allow only one healthy visitor at a time, per patient. Visitors will be screened for potential exposure, travel history and upper respiratory tract symptoms. This new policy went into effect on Wednesday, March 18, and will remain in place until further notice.

Jupiter Medical Center is also in the process of rescheduling non-urgent, elective surgeries. This measure will minimize any potential spread among patients, as well as reduce the risk of exposure to team members and frontline providers. Jupiter Medical Center will continue to perform non-elective, urgent and emergency surgeries.

“In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American College of Surgeons recommendations, we are rescheduling elective surgeries to protect the health of our patients and caregivers at this time,” said Dr. Amit Rastogi, president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “We recognize the impact on those patients whose procedures are being delayed and certainly look forward to amending our policy as events warrant.”

Jupiter Medical Center continues to conduct multidisciplinary training drills in preparation for screening, diagnosing, isolating and treating any potential cases of COVID-19, as well as ensuring the proper use of personal protective equipment in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended guidelines.
