Thanks to Donors, Jupiter Medical Center Plans to Remain a Not-for-Profit

Jupiter, Fla. – Jupiter Medical Center Foundation hosted their Annual Donor Reception at The Club at Admirals Cove on Thursday, April 19.

More than 400 supporters of the hospital attended the event, which celebrated the generosity and philanthropy of the guests, as well as those donors who were unable to be present.

“We are excited to share that we are quickly approaching the halfway point in our $300 million campaign for Jupiter Medical Center,” said Liv Vesely, president of the hospital’s foundation. “This level of philanthropy is allowing us to continue to execute on our strategic growth plan, which enables us to remain an independent, not-for-profit health care system for the region.”

Thanks to the ongoing support from donors, Jupiter Medical Center continues to recruit the best physicians, acquire advanced medical technology and build state-of-the-art facilities.

“We are extremely grateful for the support of our community. Many donors have been supporting Jupiter Medical Center for years – even decades. As one of the newest members of the Jupiter Medical Center family, I look forward to getting to know each and every one of our donors,” said Don McKenna, president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center.
