New facility reflects $25 million investment in Jupiter, surrounding areas
May 17, 2023 – PAM Health announced today that it will soon open a state-of-the-art, 42-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Jupiter, Fla., to serve the greater Palm Beach and Martin County areas. PAM Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Jupiter is a joint venture with Jupiter Medical Center, one of South Florida’s most respected and preferred hospitals.
The 50,000-square-foot, two-story hospital, representing more than $25 million in capital investment in Jupiter and the surrounding communities, will be PAM Health’s fourth hospital in Florida. The company operates PAM Health Specialty Hospital of Sarasota, PAM Health Specialty Hospital of Jacksonville, and PAM Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Tavares, all post-acute care hospitals serving critically ill patients with complex medical conditions.
“PAM Health is excited to bring comprehensive care for rehabilitation patients with complex conditions to the Jupiter community,” says Anthony Misitano, Founder, Chairman and CEO. “Throughout the communities we serve, we put the patient first and provide comprehensive, individualized treatment that fosters meaningful improvement and recovery for people with injuries, illnesses, and disabilities.”
The new hospital will feature a physician-led team of rehabilitation experts focused on a common goal of increasing patient strength and endurance and improving quality of life for patients who have experienced stroke, brain injury, neurological disease and deficits, amputations, pulmonary disease, orthopedic conditions, spinal cord injury, and other medically complex conditions.
“As we continue to expand access to the high-quality health care that Jupiter Medical Center is known for, the partnership with PAM Health enables us to enhance post-acute care for our region,” says Amit Rastogi, MD, MHCM, President and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center, the area’s only independent not-for-profit hospital. “PAM Health’s patient-first approach aligns perfectly with our mission.”
Collaborating with PAM Health to develop the hospital are Rendina Healthcare Real Estate, which is headquartered in Jupiter, and Astrea Development. Both are recognized leaders in the industry. Rendina’s solutions have resulted in the development of more than 7.75 million square feet and transactions totaling nearly $2 billion in financing. Throughout the U.S., Astrea’s development projects include 75 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals that average 50 beds and 55,000 square feet.
Building the hospital created approximately 160 construction jobs. When fully operational, it will support more than 125 permanent jobs.
