February 17, 2021- JFK Medical Center’s North Campus broke ground in September of 2019 on a $26 million construction project which included expanding the Behavioral Health Pavilion from an 88-bed unit to a 124-bed unit with the addition of 12 adolescent beds and 24 adult beds.  On Tuesday, February 16, 2021, hospital leadership celebrated the unit’s completion with a COVID-conscious ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the occasion.
JFK North Campus offers comprehensive psychiatric and behavioral health services to children, adolescents, adults and seniors in their Pavilion, which is located adjacent to the main hospital on the facilities campus. 
“As a community health partner, we are proud to offer increased access to behavioral health services, as they are an essential component of our community’s healthcare,” said hospital CEO, Ashley Vertuno.  
In addition to being the largest provider of behavioral health services in Palm Beach County, JFK North Campus provides high quality, compassionate patient care in many other service areas including addiction stabilization, 24-hour emergency care, gastroenterology, general surgery, orthopedics, pain management, podiatry, vascular surgery and urology.
