Jupiter, FLA. – Jupiter Medical Center will soon welcome patients
through the new main entrance and 5-story patient tower. On Thursday,
October 10, donors, administrators and dignitaries celebrated the philanthropy
that made the expansion possible on two of the soon-to-be-open units located
in the tower.
The 5-story patient tower will house the Level II De George Neonatal Intensive
Care Unit (NICU), the James & Diane Perrella Patient & Family
Resource Center, the Tansky Concierge Suites, and the Missy & Peter
Crisp Cancer Unit for Women.
“Palm Beach County’s population is growing in every demographic.
And, thanks to the generosity of our donors, and the foresight and planning
of our staff and administrators, Jupiter Medical Center stands ready to
meet the region’s needs,” said Liv Vesely, president of Jupiter
Medical Center Foundation.
“I’m excited to have joined the medical center at such an exciting
time and look forward to working with the foundation and our donors to
continue expanding our team of world class physicians, highly specialized
clinical programs, and investing in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment,”
said Dr. Amit Rastogi, president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center.
The Level II De George Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will open on November
20, allowing Jupiter Medical Center to deliver babies as early as 32 weeks
gestation. The 16-bed facility, outfitted with advanced monitoring, imaging
and respiratory technologies, was made possible by the generosity of the
Lawrence J. and Florence A. De George Charitable Trust and the Nicklaus
Children’s Hospital/Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.
The James & Diane Perrella Patient and Family Resource Center, which
will open in December, is proof of Jupiter Medical Center’s commitment
to provide compassionate care. Located on the first floor of the new patient
tower, the center will offer private consultation rooms, a resource center
and services to improve comfort and the experience for patients and their
families. The Tansky Concierge Suites and the Missy & Peter Crisp
Cancer Unit for Women are also expected to open in January.
The new entrance to the hospital and the 5-story patient tower are part
of Jupiter Medical Center’s $300 million Vision. Innovation. Impact.
Campaign, which has funded the hospital’s journey to becoming the
top-rated medical center in the region.
