THE HEART OF PATIENT-CENTERED CARE
Nowhere in medicine is the delivery of timely care more urgent than in
the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac illness. To this day, heart disease
remains the #1 killer of men and women in the United States.
At Jupiter Medical Center, we’re reimagining the way cardiac care
is delivered so that world-class medicine, advanced technology and expert
cardiologists come together to serve patients when and where it matters
most. To fulfill our vision, we’re embarking on a bold $300 million
comprehensive campaign, including a $10 million goal to increase our diagnostic
and interventional capacity as well as to continue expanding cardiac services
at Jupiter Medical Center.
By investing together in our region’s health and well-being, your
generous support offers greater access to world-class cardiac care so
that patients with the most complex needs won’t need to travel to
other hospitals for lifesaving treatment.
“Our goal is to improve the high level of cardiac care we already
offer at Jupiter Medical Center. That’s because we understand it’s
crucial to have top-quality cardiac care minutes from home, when seconds

A REGIONAL DESTINATION FOR CARDIAC CARE
At Jupiter Medical Center, it has long been our goal to provide the highest-quality
care for patients with heart and vascular disease. In fact, our hospital
has been recognized among the top 10% in the U.S. for medical excellence
in cardiac care.1 In 2015, our innovative partnership with Mount Sinai
Heart New York was a crucial step in expanding the depth, expertise and
range of our cardiac resources.
Now Jupiter Medical Center is taking another leap forward in our quest
to become a top-tier, comprehensive cardiovascular program. This will
require the creation of a third interventional cardiac catheterization
lab so that more patients can receive cardiac procedures such as balloon
angioplasty and coronary stents close to home. It also means upgrading
our existing lab so that we can perform electrophysiology studies to diagnose
and treat abnormal heartbeats or arrhythmia. As we reach our volume goals
and evolve to become a Level II cardiac care center, we’ll be able
to perform more advanced procedures at Jupiter Medical Center, including
cardiac bypass, valve replacement and repairs, and advanced interventional
procedures such as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement and advanced
ablations for atrial fibrillation.
KEEPING OUR FOCUS ON LEADING-EDGE CARDIAC CARE
We’re transforming the way we treat cardiovascular disease with the
most technologically advanced care unit in Florida and across the nation.
With your generous support, the expansion of Jupiter Medical Center’s
cardiovascular services will offer:
- Advanced technologies for better outcomes, including the addition of a
third interventional cardiac catheterization lab, offering high-tech detection
tools including the Philips AlluraClarity with ClarityIQ interventional
X-ray system and “Vision Screen” capability to detect blockages.
- Enhanced continuity of care using centralized cardiac telemetry that will
enable cardiac specialists here at Jupiter Medical Center and at Mount
Sinai Heart New York to monitor patients from anywhere in the hospital.
- A patient-centered approach to heart health, including cardiac rehab, prevention
and early detection programs and other support services designed to promote
heart-healthy habits and wellness in the community.
- The best surgical care for your heart anywhere. Our partnership with Mount
Sinai Heart New York, which enables us to tap into the expertise of renowned
subspecialists when needed, along with the planned expansion of our surgical
suite and post-operative rooms, will mean cardiac patients can get world-class
medical attention at a hospital they know and trust.
