Palm Beach County’s first hospital to perform open-heart surgery is proud to celebrate its 50th anniversary. 
Founded in 1968, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is now a 199-bed acute care hospital serving the medical and surgical needs of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.  The hospital was the first in Palm Beach County to perform open-heart procedures, and has since remained one of the area’s leading heart hospitals. 
Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center offers comprehensive cardiac care and advanced minimally invasive procedures, including Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) and MitraClip.  The hospital is also the first in Palm Beach, Broward and Martin County to adopt the minimally invasive convergent approach to treat patients with atrial fibrillation.  
 “Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has become trusted by families throughout the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast for the quality of our medical care and the dedication and warmth of our people,” commented Trey Abshier, chief executive officer of Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. “We will continue to bring advanced medical technologies and innovative services to our community.
Additional services include orthopedics and joint replacement, an Advanced Certified Primary Stroke Center, diagnostic imaging, general and robotic surgery, a dedicated Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and 24-hour emergency care. 
Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is also the only hospital in Palm Beach County to earn an “A’ for patient safety in the Fall of 2017 and the Spring of 2018 by Leapfrog.
