TIMOTHY AND JAYNE DONAHUE CARDIAC SURGERY PROGRAM

A Center of Excellence ranked among the top 10 percent of U.S. health care organizations for outstanding cardiac care, Jupiter Medical Center’s cardiovascular program has made dramatic strides in recent years. An array of sophisticated new technologies and techniques is saving and transforming the lives of people with congenital, acute and chronic heart conditions.

Thanks in large part to generous gifts, we launched the Timothy and Jayne Donahue Cardiac Surgery Program in January 2019, which will not only deliver excellence in cardiac care, but allow us to become a Level II Cardiac Care Center.

The Level II Cardiac Care designation will allow our physicians to perform more advanced procedures on patients with more serious cardiac issues such as cardiac bypass and valve replacement and repairs, and advanced interventional procedures that include Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) and advanced ablations for atrial fibrillation. These procedures achieve lifesaving results with minimal discomfort, and faster healing times with lower risk than traditional surgery. With the opening of the Cardiac Surgery Program, Jupiter Medical Center will have full open-heart surgery capabilities in 2019, setting the stage for an even more comprehensive Robson Heart & Vascular Institute.

ROBSON HEART & VASCULAR INSTITUTE

The second phase in cardiovascular care will expand on the foundation we built through our Cardiac Surgery Program to include an Advanced Arrhythmia Center (electrophysiology), a Cardiovascular ICU, a Structural Heart Program, a Vascular Disease Program and more, thanks to a landmark gift in 2018 that named the Robson Heart & Vascular Institute. Ultimately, the Robson Heart & Vascular Institute at Jupiter Medical Center will become a premier center for cardiovascular care comprised of multiple Centers of Excellence.

VASCULAR DISEASE PROGRAM

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is often overlooked when more serious cardiac disease is present. The Vascular Disease Program will include a team of specialized physicians trained to detect abnormalities in the vascular system and whose practice focuses specifically on vascular disease.

CARDIOVASCULAR INTENSIVE CARE UNIT

Part of offering open-heart surgery will include converting existing space to build a Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CICU). The CICU will support the state-of-the-art Cardiac Surgery Program, providing physicians and patients with the latest in recovery techniques and technologies. Additionally, Jupiter Medical Center will recruit highly trained critical care nurses to meet the complex needs of very sick patients.

ADVANCED ARRHYTHMIA CENTER

With the addition of a new electrophysiology lab, Jupiter Medical Center will be able to perform electrophysiology studies to diagnose and treat abnormal heartbeats and arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. The results from these studies will allow cardiologists to determine whether a patient will need medicine, a pacemaker, an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), cardiac ablation or surgery.

STRUCTURAL HEART PROGRAM

The development and launch of a Structural Heart Program will deliver the best possible treatment plan and outcomes for patients with structural heart conditions, including treatment of conditions affecting the valves and other vital structures of the heart.

ENHANCED CARDIAC REHABILITATION PROGRAM

At Jupiter Medical Center, the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is a robust program that includes monitored exercise, nutritional counseling and emotional support to help most heart disease patients lower their risk of future heart problems by making changes to improve their health. In the next phase, Jupiter Medical Center’s cardiac rehab will continue offering advanced Cardiac Rehabilitation for patients recovering from open-heart surgery, with enhancements that will include a cardiac prevention program, stress management, a nutrition education program and more.
