Jupiter Medical Center and Robins & Morton Celebrate Surgical Center Groundbreaking

Construction firm Robins & Morton and Jupiter Medical Center recently celebrated the groundbreaking for the hospital’s new two-story, 90,000-square-foot Surgical Institute, a key part of the hospital’s ongoing expansion to meet growing regional demand.

Jupiter Medical Center’s Surgical Institute will expand and renovate the Surgical Department on the Jupiter Medical Center campus with 16 state-of-the-art operating rooms and two hybrid operating rooms to support the latest advancements in surgical technologies and techniques. Private consultation rooms and comfortable areas for preoperative and postoperative meetings will further elevate the patient experience. Patients and families will benefit from outdoor spaces with a terrace adjacent to a new dedicated waiting room, along with covered parking. For staff, anesthesia workrooms, multiple nurses’ stations, offices, and a physician’s lounge with kitchen space will provide additional collaborative space and help attract world-class healthcare providers.

In preparation, Robins & Morton has demolished a former skilled nursing building on the Jupiter Medical Center and is also expanding and renovating the campus’s central energy plant.

“We are expanding at Jupiter Medical Center and are grateful to have Robins & Morton as a partner during this development,” said Dr. Amit Rastogi, CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “Our physicians are performing some of the most advanced procedures available, and this new Surgical Institute will allow us to continue to be on the forefront of technology.”

“Jupiter is the fastest-growing community in Palm Beach County,” said Robins & Morton Operations Manager Johnathan Peavy. “Robins & Morton is honored that Jupiter Medical Center has entrusted us as a partner in their mission to provide comprehensive and advanced surgical care to Palm Beach and Martin counties. We’re excited to start construction and look forward to delivering a first-class facility to the community in 2023.”
