Jupiter Medical Center Opens New Urgent Care Center in West Palm Beach on October 5th


JUPITER, FLA. (October 3, 2017) – Jupiter Medical Center opens a new urgent care center on Thursday, October 5, at 625 North Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach, giving area residents and businesses access to the same high-quality urgent care and outpatient services that their neighbors to the north enjoy.


Located on the first floor of the new Jupiter Medical Center Mount Sinai New York Plaza – formerly known as the Bank of America Centre – the new urgent care center offers fast and affordable walk-in service for minor emergencies, injuries and illnesses.


“We are committed to ensuring our community has access to the highest quality of affordable and accessible care,” said Steve Seeley, interim president and chief executive officer of Jupiter Medical Center. “Unlike other urgent care centers, Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care locations are backed by the hospital that has the highest patient satisfaction in the region, and quality and safety scores that rank nationally.”


Patients will receive care for everything from the common cold, the flu and sinus infections to cuts, burns, sprains, strains and more. The center also provides on-site laboratory testing, digital X-rays and additional services to enable the rapid diagnosis and treatment of urgent medical conditions and minor trauma. Services to support healthier living are also available, such as immunizations like flu shots, travel vaccines or preoperative clearance.  In addition, the center offers companies and employers in the bustling downtown West Palm business district convenient access to pre-employment screenings and medical examinations.


“Our Urgent Care Centers are the cornerstone of our convenient care offerings. They are designed to meet a myriad of health needs for our busy community,” explained Judy Magalhaes, vice president, Ambulatory Care. “Patients can also feel secure knowing X-rays are read by the same highly qualified staff serving patients in the hospital. Likewise, if patients need specialty care, we can direct them to Jupiter Medical Center and Mount Sinai New York specialists who are ranked among the region’s best.”


The urgent care center strengthens the partnership between Jupiter Medical Center and Mount Sinai New York, who joined forces in 2014 and recently took up residence in the Jupiter Medical Center Mount Sinai New York Plaza. Together, they bring a range of health care services to those who live or work downtown, as well as nearby residents of Palm Beach Island.


The Mount Sinai Doctors Palm Beach practice will be offering world-class care in several specialty areas.  Internal medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology, dermatology, endocrinology and ophthalmology services will be provided by high quality, board certified, well trained physicians who will continue the Mount Sinai New York tradition of providing personalized care to both local patients and those who travel between New York and Palm Beach County.


"Mount Sinai New York is proud to partner with Jupiter Medical Center in providing residents of Palm Beach County enhanced access to multi-specialty health care services,” said Arthur Klein, MD, President of the Mount Sinai Health Network. “We have successfully recruited physicians from some of the most prestigious national medical centers to join us in this important enterprise.”


This is Jupiter Medical Center’s fourth urgent care location and similarly, provides immediate and affordable walk-in care after hours, as well as weekends and holidays. All four centers are open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and on Sundays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Appointments also can be scheduled online at


All four state-of-the-art centers are supervised by a physician medical director and staffed by a team of certified physician assistants, advanced registered nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses, radiology technologists and urgent care technologists who provide assistance with injuries, illnesses, X-rays and more.
