Jupiter Medical Center reinstitutes elective procedures

Jupiter Medical Center has resumed elective surgeries, procedures and treatments.

“The health, well-being and safety of our patients, physicians and team members is of paramount importance to us.” Dr. Amit Rastogi, president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center, said in a statement. “The protective measures we have implemented, including new advanced sterilization technologies and safeguards, have enabled us to carefully steward two distinct patient populations undergoing treatment in separate areas of our facilities.

As a result of these efforts, Jupiter Medical Center will resume elective surgeries that are vitally important to the health and well-being of many members of our community.”

Most recently, Jupiter Medical Center was awarded an “A” safety grade rating by The Leapfrog Group, as well as being named “Top Hospital,” a distinction earned by only 6% of hospitals nationwide.

The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit focused on rating and measuring hospital safety, quality and affordability. Jupiter Medical Center also is the only hospital in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties to receive a 4-star safety and quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

“Elective” can encompass a wide range of surgeries used to treat chronic conditions, relieve pain, restore mobility, improve health, and dramatically impact quality of life.

These include cardiovascular surgeries, pediatric surgeries, gynecological surgeries, orthopedic surgical procedures, such as hip and knee replacements, spinal surgery, comprehensive stroke, and other procedures to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions.
