Jupiter, Fla. – Thanks to the generosity of donors, on January 10, Jupiter Medical Center
Foundation celebrated the ribbon-cutting of the Timothy and Jayne Donahue
Cardiac Surgery Program, the state-of-the art Comprehensive Stroke Center
and the James J. Felcyn and Louise Brien Felcyn Observation Unit.
The opening of the new, 18-bed Observation Unit is well coordinated with
the stroke and heart program, and is considered a best practice as it
speeds up diagnosis and treatment for patients who require close monitoring
and advanced testing. The Timothy and Jayne Donahue Cardiac Surgery Program
includes two, new state-of-the-art operating suites, which will allow
Jupiter Medical Center to offer more advanced cardiac procedures and open-heart
surgery. Thanks to an anonymous $5 million gift, Jupiter Medical Center
is now the only Comprehensive Stroke Center in northern Palm Beach County
and Martin County, delivering 24/7 rapid, advanced stroke care.
At the gathering, Liv Vesely, President of Jupiter Medical Center Foundation,
said, “Thanks to philanthropy, we have the ability to move swiftly
and meet the needs of our community. We are very grateful to our donors.”
