Best of Palm Beach County Awards – Best Hospital
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by an experienced team dedicated to providing clinical excellence and cultivating a culture of compassion, Jupiter Medical Center consistently has the highest patient satisfaction scores in the region. The Best of Palm Beach County awards follow several national recognitions Jupiter Medical Center has recently received. Jupiter Medical Center is the only hospital in Palm Beach County to receive a 4-star quality and safety rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The Leapfrog Group has also named Jupiter Medical Center a “Top Hospital,” placing Jupiter Medical Center in the top 6 percent of hospitals nationwide.
Jupiter Medical Center continues to significantly expand treatment options for patients with the recently announced affiliation between the Anderson Family Cancer Institute and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, providing residents of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast with seamless access to groundbreaking cancer treatments.
Best of Palm Beach County Awards – Best Place to Have a Baby
Each year, more than 1,600 babies are delivered in Jupiter Medical Center’s Florence A. De George Children & Women’s Services Obstetrics Unit. The unit recently added the Level II De George Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which is equipped to care for babies born as early as 32 weeks.
“Our obstetrics unit is staffed by experienced neonatal specialists and equipped with the latest technology to ensure mom, baby, and family are thriving before, during and after delivery,” said Pam Canter, interim chief nursing officer. “And with the addition of our new NICU, we now have the ability to care for preemies or seriously ill newborns who require a higher level of specialized attention.”
Best of Palm Beach County Awards – Best Emergency Room
Jupiter Medical Center’s emergency department is ready 24/7 to provide life-saving care to patients with critical conditions and other urgent medical issues. In 2019, Jupiter Medical Center expanded our specialized pediatric emergency capabilities with the opening of the Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department. This dedicated, child-friendly space has eight beds and is designed to be calming and reassuring to younger patients.
“Last year, we saw nearly 40,000 visits to the emergency department at Jupiter Medical Center,” said Carol Milliken, director of the emergency department. “The addition of the Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department allows us to provide our young patients with their own waiting area, triage rooms and treatment rooms, where they are cared for by our pediatric emergency teams.”
“2020 is a time of historic growth and development for Jupiter Medical Center,” added Dr. Rastogi. “We are introducing groundbreaking new treatments and capabilities to the residents of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, as we continue our evolution to becoming a regional health care destination. Being recognized by the community we serve for our unwavering commitment to excellence, quality and patient experience is truly gratifying.”
