One of the most difficult tasks when relocating is finding a new physician you are comfortable with and can trust for your most important health care needs. Furthermore, as a woman, I know all too well that we tend to take on the role of caregiver, consistently taking care of loved ones and home, all the while juggling work and every day pressures of life. You and your family deserve the best, and that’s exactly what you will get when you become part of the Jupiter Medical Center family. Welcome home!
Since our founding in 1979, we have flourished to become one of South Florida’s most respected and preferred hospitals. Jupiter Medical Center is reimagining how to restore the community’s health and wellness. Award-winning physicians, world-class partnerships and innovative techniques and technology enable Jupiter Medical Center to provide a broad range of services with specialty concentrations in pediatrics, cardiology, oncology, imaging, orthopedics & spine, digestive health, emergency services, lung & thoracic, weight management, women’s and men’s health.
Whether it’s for your children, spouse, family member or another loved one, Jupiter Medical Center provides a variety of services that may be helpful to you during this transition:
24/7 Pediatric Services include pediatric primary care, emergency services, imaging, inpatient and outpatient therapy, diabetes education and surgical services in the De George Pediatric Unit, which provides care for newborns, toddlers and adolescents up to age 18.
Urgent Care Centers offer fast and affordable walk-in service in two convenient locations, with a third opening soon in Palm Beach Gardens. We are open after hours and on the weekends to better serve your needs. We’re here for you so you can get in, get out, and get back to good health. We welcome children and adults and offer fast affordable walk-in service and scheduled appointments.

And with all the time women focus on taking care of others, they forget to take care of themselves. Our Women’s Health Program offers a full line of health care services uniquely designed for women. Whether you’re having a baby, approaching menopause, learning to live with a life-altering diagnosis or just trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, we have resources, technologies and highly skilled professionals you can count on.
The goal of our Women’s Health Program is to provide health care services in a seamless environment, called a “System of Care,” spanning a woman’s lifetime from health care screenings, wellness and diagnostics in the outpatient setting, to the acute care arena (including minimally invasive surgical procedures), followed by the post-acute care environment (including follow-up care and rehabilitation services) – all provided in a well-coordinated program with a single entry point.
The Women’s Health Program at Jupiter Medical Center offers a dedicated women’s health navigator to guide you and your family through the entire health care experience, providing you with high quality care, counseling, education and support. For more information on women’s health, contact our Women’s Health Navigator, at (561)-263-4HER (4437).
