Comprehensive Stroke Center – Jan 2019
Thanks to a magnificent $5 million gift from an anonymous donor, Jupiter
Medical Center was able to fast-track the development and launch of our
Comprehensive Stroke Center, which opened in January 2019. Our Comprehensive
Stroke Center delivers 24/7 rapid, advanced stroke care for both ischemic
(blockages) and hemorrhagic (bleeding) strokes, utilizing advanced facilities
and technologies. The Center includes the latest, 3-D neurointerventional
biplane angiography technology which is used for precise diagnosis of
neurological abnormalities and minimally invasive endovascular procedures
that can immediately repair these conditions. This 3-D biplane technology
also provides physicians with functional imaging, allowing advanced visualization
and navigation around structures in the brain, providing better patient outcomes.
While Jupiter Medical Center has been a Primary Stroke Center since 2008,
this much needed move to become a designated Comprehensive Stroke Center
was on the heels of a protocol change by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue
to transport stroke patients only to facilities that have this designation.
The closest Comprehensive Stroke Center to the south is in West Palm Beach,
and Fort Pierce, Fla., to the north.
