JUPITER MEDICAL CARE: HOW GOOD IS IT?
November 15, 2016 | Richard Sites
When considering where to move in Florida, particularly if you are retiring, the quality of medical care always comes into the picture. So, how good is the medical care in Jupiter?
Jupiter and Jupiter Island are among the wealthiest areas in the country. So it stands to reason that the residents would want the best medical care money can buy.
The Jupiter Medical Center is our local hospital and it is located just a couple of minutes from our private clubs like Jonathan’s Landing, Admirals Cove, The Bears Club and Trump National Jupiter. And since Jupiter is really a small town, all neighborhoods, like Abacoa, are also very close.
Jupiter Medical Center recently received a $25 million dollar gift from an anonymous source. The gift will help the hospital finance a significant portion of its expansion project. It was one of the largest ever received by the 327 bed hospital.
Hospital officials said the donation will go toward a $50 million Comprehensive Cancer Institute.
“At Jupiter Medical Center, we are transforming the future of healthcare in our community, and we are doing this by putting patients at the center of everything we do,” said John Couris, president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “This is only possible with the generous support of our donors, whose investments in Jupiter Medical Center will make an incalculable impact on our community.”
In addition to the Jupiter Medical Center, just 6 miles to the south is the Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. This is a much bigger facility with a cardiac unit and often patients are transferred there from Jupiter for an elevated course of treatment.
Like everything in Jupiter, there is a small town feel in the hospital. If you go to the Emergency Room on a Friday night there will probably not be a crowd and there is hardly ever a wait.
If you are thinking of moving to Jupiter, let me show you the best communities and some great deals before they are gone. Unlike many agents, I have lived here 25 years and know the market inside and out.
