October 5, 2023 – Jupiter Medical Center is celebrating another recognition for its quality of care. Becker’s Healthcare recently recognized the independent not-for-profit health care system as a “Great Oncology Program.” The annual list features only 100 hospitals and health systems from across the country. Jupiter Medical Center was one of only five in Florida to achieve the standout recognition.
Becker’s Healthcare is the go-to source for health care decision-makers. Editors who compiled the list acknowledged that the hospitals and systems featured have earned national recognition for their work in cancer care. Many of the programs that made the list have received national recognition from the National Cancer Institute and are ranked among the top hospitals for cancer care by U.S. News & World Report. The editors also considered centers with internationally known specialists, numerous clinical trials and exceptional safety ratings.
“This is an incredible distinction among our peers,” said Amit Rastogi, MD, MHCM, President and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “Cancer care is something we are deeply passionate about at Jupiter Medical Center, and this recognition reflects that we are leading the way in our region.”
The Anderson Family Cancer Institute at Jupiter Medical Center brings together multidisciplinary cancer experts, leading-edge technology, and amenities uniquely designed to ensure the highest level of patient comfort and healing in one integrated location. The Institute is accredited by the Commission on Cancer, a distinction only 30% of cancer programs nationwide receive. The Institute’s multidisciplinary approach allows patients to see multiple specialists and the support team in a single day. Multidisciplinary care is more effective and efficient, given that appointments with various specialists can happen concurrently, which prevents the lag time created by seeing physicians separately. Additionally, Jupiter Medical Center introduced next day oncologist appointments last year, so newly diagnosed cancer patients could accelerate their cancer journey. The hospital’s model has successfully expanded access to care in the region.
“Our approach to cancer care is multifaceted,” said Rogerio C. Lilenbaum, MD, FASCO, SVP and Chief Physician Executive, and Director of The Anderson Family Cancer Institute. “As an academic-minded institution, we are very focused on expanding access to clinical research, utilizing the latest technology, working with world-class physicians and improving processes to ensure the greatest patient experiences, such as adopting a multidisciplinary approach and incorporating next day oncology appointments. Through these measures, we can achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients.”
Earlier this year, Jupiter Medical Center was named a 2023-2024 High Performing hospital by U.S. News & World Report for Colon Cancer Surgery, Lung Cancer Surgery, and Leukemia Lymphoma & Myeloma. This is the highest award a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions ratings.
