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.
Jupiter Medical Center’s Surgical Institute will expand and renovate the surgical department on the center’s campus with 16 operating rooms and two hybrid operating rooms. 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 physicians’ lounge with kitchen space will provide additional collaborative space.
In preparation, Robins & Morton has demolished a former skilled nursing building on the JMC and is also expanding and renovating the campus’s central energy plant.
Earl Swensson Associates is serving as the architect. Robins & Morton is the general contractor.
