A NEW GENERATION IN SURGICAL CARE
As the outstanding medical resource for the region, Jupiter Medical Center
is leading the way in healthcare innovations. Community-focused and regionally
responsive, we provide patients with the beneficial impacts of cutting-edge
technology and the highest quality in clinical care.
Nowhere is our vision more apparent than in our plans for a new, 90,000+
square-foot Surgical Institute. In response to growing regional demands,
and our mission to provide world-class, comprehensive and advanced surgical
care, we are planning to build 16 state-of-the-art operating rooms and
two hybrid operating rooms in a dedicated facility slated to open in 2023.
Since our current surgery suites were built in 1995, substantial strides
have been made in medical science. New technologies and techniques have
resulted in safer surgeries, better outcomes, less invasive methods and
shorter hospital stays. Our highly trained surgeons are now experts in
robotic surgery, performing complex procedures with more precision than
was possible in the past.
The Institute’s operating rooms will combine traditional surgery
with image-guided interventional capabilities to create “operating
rooms of the future.” Surgeons, radiologists and other medical providers
will come together to perform sophisticated procedures with the advantage
of real-time consultations.
To increase productivity in the surgical environment, we are creating anesthesia
workrooms, multiple nurses’ stations, staff offices and a physicians’
lounge. Private consultation rooms and other comfortable areas for preoperative
and postoperative meetings will further elevate the patient experience.
Jupiter Medical Center’s reputation for quality care is part of what
attracts world-class surgeons. Thus, the Institute will include a spacious,
dedicated physicians’ lounge with large windows for natural light,
seating areas conducive to collaboration and a private dictation room,
along with kitchen space and a quiet lounge area.
Patients, families and friends will also benefit from an enhanced experience
with attention to every detail. Families and friends will have access
to outdoor spaces with a terrace adjacent to the second-floor waiting
room, along with a dedicated discharge area leading to covered parking
for privacy and ease. Caregivers, staff and vendors will enter the Surgical
Institute from dedicated entrances to keep the busy operations of the
surgery department out of sight from patients and families.
OPERATING ROOMS OF THE FUTURE
Jupiter Medical Center is at the forefront of technology, surgical procedures
and multidisciplinary care. Now, with the new Surgical Institute, we are
expanding our infrastructure with 18 operating rooms.
Operating room design will incorporate the latest technologies and research,
focused on preventing surgical infections. From built-in sterilization
lighting and hands-free door operators, to leading-edge ventilation design,
infection control is incorporated into every design consideration.
Integrating advanced surgical, imaging and information technology, the
new Surgical Institute will utilize the latest in multilocation data collection
to consolidate patient information and make it immediately available to
a surgeon. Physicians will be able to access patient images during surgery
and transmit images from the operating room to specialists for real-time
New functionality also makes it possible to perform 3D image-guided surgery,
which aids the surgeon in visualization, enhances communication, and helps
track and anticipate events. With larger operating rooms, physicians and
other medical providers can move around the space, merging their expertise
with ease and sharing precise details and real-time input.
Having a dedicated Surgical Institute allows our physicians to implement
preoperative and postoperative standardized care with nursing staff experienced
in taking care of surgical patients. In addition, our live video feed
capabilities will support two-way teaching and put Jupiter Medical Center
at the forefront of technologyassisted, experiential learning.
