Advanced Neurology Care

It Could Happen at Anytime

While you are reading this, someone in America will have a stroke.1 When that happens, every second counts. Having immediate access to medical treatment can mean the difference between life and disability—or even death.

At Jupiter Medical Center, we’re reimagining the way care for stroke and other neurological challenges is delivered so that world-class medicine, advanced technology and compassionate care come together, right here where you live and work.

To fulfill our vision, we’re embarking on a bold $300 million comprehensive campaign that includes a $10 million goal to establish Jupiter Medical Center as the first Comprehensive Stroke Center in Northern Palm Beach County. By investing together in our community’s health and well-being, your generous support will enable us to take a leap forward in providing specialized and focused care 24/7 to patients with even the most complex neurological diseases.

VISION

Bringing World-class Care to the Community

As a certified Primary Stroke Center, it has been our mission to provide the highest-quality care to patients suffering from stroke or other neurological disease, right here in our community. With the help of our donors, our goal is to enhance our facilities, add leading-edge technology and expand our expertise so that we can treat all stroke patients, including the most serious cases, while also accepting transfers from other primary stroke centers.

By offering comprehensive stroke and neurological services in one place, we’ll be able to help more people when and where they need us most. The new facility also will allow us to expand our capabilities to include top-tier neurology specialists and subspecialists, who will work collaboratively not only to treat stroke but also to prevent or reverse its effects.

INNOVATION

Leading Stroke Prevention and Treatment

The enhancements we’re planning will help improve outcomes for patients experiencing stroke or other neurological disease.
Your generous contribution to the Jupiter Medical Center campaign will help support:

  • Quick action, speedy diagnosis and immediate treatment for stroke and neurological conditions, vastly increasing the chances of recovery and creating better outcomes for patients.
  • Advanced technologies that will improve patient outcomes. This includes state-of-the-art biplane angiography equipment that enables physicians to provide the most complex neurointerventional procedures such as clot extraction and nonsurgical aneurysm repair.
  • Continuity of care. Our goal is to enhance our Intensive Care Unit, telemetry and advanced training so specialists here at Jupiter Medical Center can provide seamless care between the Neuro ICU and Stroke unit.
  • A multidisciplinary approach to comprehensive stroke care. This includes stroke prevention, early detection, rehabilitation and other support services designed to promote health and wellness.
  • World-class stroke care. The planned enhancement of our surgical suite and addition of a top-tier neurointerventionalist and neurosurgical support will enable us to earn designation as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, allowing us to offer more advanced support procedures, including surgical intervention in the case of hemorrhagic stroke.
