Jupiter Medical Center’s Emergency Department is set to undergo a major expansion and renovation beginning in October. The Emergency Department is a critical entry point to the hospital and important for future growth and patient satisfaction.
The expansion is the result of gifts to Jupiter Medical Center Foundation – a $3 million gift from the Attilio & Beverly Petrocelli Foundation and a $1 million gift from Joyce C. Fisher. The gifts will enable the medical center to build a new wing, including eight fast-track bays to assist patients with less-acute medical needs, thereby improving wait times, enhancing the patient’s experience, and increasing the overall footprint of the existing Emergency Department. The renovation will include the purchase of advanced clinical equipment, spacious patient and triage rooms, a more functional layout for clinicians, with state-of-the-art technologies to handle higher patient volumes, and expansive waiting areas for loved ones. This expansion will augment a patient’s experience by providing a comforting environment with streamlined services to assist during a potentially stressful time. The new center will be named the Petrocelli Emergency Center.
