Heart and Vascular At the Robson Heart & Vascular Institute, we continue to develop our already exceptional cardiac program through recruitment of world-class talent, cuttingedge technology and the addition of revolutionary new cardiac procedures. By expanding our heart and vascular treatment options and building a Structural Heart Program to treat common heart disease conditions, utilizing the most advanced techniques, we continue to lead the region in comprehensive minimally invasive cardiac care. FIRST WATCHMANTM PROCEDURE TREATS AFIB In January our cardiac team performed the first WATCHMANTM implant procedure at Jupiter Medical Center. Designed for patients with atrial fibrillation not caused by heart valve problems, the WATCHMANTM procedure reduces the risk of stroke, providing peace-of-mind to the increasingly growing number of patients affected by AFib. This minimally invasive procedure expands our commitment to providing the most advanced cardiac care to our patients. A FORWARD-THINKING CARDIAC APPROACH As a leader in the region for exceptional cardiac care, the Robson Heart & Vascular Institute continuously strives to provide our patients with the most advanced treatment options and the highest level of care. Cardiac care is advancing rapidly with many new technologies and innovative treatment methods emerging. Jupiter Medical Center is at the forefront of these advancements, investing in the technologies and talent to continue our commitment to exceptional cardiac care. In 2021, the Robson Heart & Vascular Institute at Jupiter Medical Center created a dedicated Structural Heart Program, encompassing several cutting-edge procedures that treat conditions such as heart valve defects without openheart surgery. A multidisciplinary team of specialists works closely together to develop a comprehensive treatment strategy for patients with the end goal of providing alternatives to open-heart surgery whenever possible. Our cardiac specialists can now offer patients a broader spectrum of treatment options that


are less invasive and have a much shorter recovery time. Innovative procedures being performed now include transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), MitraClip, and WATCHMANTM. The Structural Heart Program is continually expanding to offer heart patients more minimally-invasive treatment options in the future as technology continues to evolve. Our efforts to recruit top heart and vascular physicians with the advanced skills and expertise the Robson Heart & Vascular Institute is known for are ongoing. The team, led by Dr. Arthur Katz, Medical Director of Cardiac Surgery, is committed to recruiting only the highest level of talent in cardiac care. The new Surgical Institute opening in 2023 will allow for further growth of our heart and vascular program. With 16 state-of-the-art operating and hybrid rooms, we will have the ability to provide life-saving cardiac care to many more patients suffering with heart disease. FY21 MILESTONES •

Oncology In March 2020, Jupiter Medical Center opened the 80,000-squarefoot Anderson Family Cancer Institute, allowing for new growth in our comprehensive cancer program. This state-of-the-art facility sets the bar for cancer care, from early detection to advanced diagnostics and innovative treatments. During 2021, we continued to expand cancer services by investing in technology and recruitment to ensure cancer patients have the highest quality of care and the best treatment options. The Anderson Family Cancer Institute at Jupiter Medical Center provides: •

During 2021 we continued our commitment to personalized care for each cancer patient. Through our unique patient navigator program, each patient is connected with a patient navigator who coordinates care and guides patients through the treatment process. Unlike many cancer programs, Jupiter Medical Center offers comprehensive cancer services in one location. Services such as lab work, pharmacy services and therapy are all on-site. As we connect with patients and stay attuned to their needs, we work to enhance patient and family comfort and convenience with features such as: •

Modern auditorium for educational events

PRECISION IN CANCER CARE The Anderson Family Cancer Institute invests in the most progressive technology to diagnose and treat various forms of cancer. Systems such as TrueBeam™ Radiotherapy system, the CyberKnife® M6™ Robotic Radiosurgery, and the Electron IntraOperative Therapy (e-IORT) offer more precision in treating cancer while reducing the impact on healthy tissue and, oftentimes, allowing for fewer radiation treatments. We remain committed to investing in a level of technology that rivals that of any major academic medical center.

Foundation A LANDMARK YEAR In fiscal year 2021, Jupiter Medical Center Foundation received a recordbreaking level of philanthropic support totaling nearly $54 million. This extraordinary level of philanthropy has enabled the medical center to expand its highly specialized services to rival that of an academic medical center. At the Robson Heart and Vascular Institute, for instance, the cardiac team has expanded its minimally invasive treatment options to include advanced procedures such as TAVR and WATCHMANTM technology for AFib treatment. Increased philanthropy also gives Jupiter Medical Center the opportunity to recruit top medical oncologists, expand, and enhance emergency services, and purchase the most advanced technology. The Anderson Family Cancer Institute has added several renowned specialists, providing patients with top medical experts to treat a wider spectrum of cancer diagnoses. Most importantly, the generosity of our donors allows Jupiter Medical Center to meet the needs of the community while remaining independent and adept at responding to the changing landscape of healthcare. To date, the Foundation has raised more than $278 million since the launch of the Vision. Innovation. Impact. Campaign for Jupiter Medical Center.

PHILANTHROPIC INVESTMENTS IN SURGERY The Frank E. & Mary D. Walsh Robotic Surgery Program at Jupiter Medical Center is one of the most comprehensive programs in the area and offers cutting-edge technology including the daVinci® Xi™ Surgical Systems. A third surgical system has been added to the Robotic Surgery Program thanks to a $2 million gift from Johnny and Terry Gray. The program also added the Ion Intuitive Robot, funded by a gift from Dr. Daniel Morello, a retired plastic surgeon, and his wife Mona. This stateof the-art technology features an ultra-thin, ultra-maneuverable catheter that allows navigation far into the lung and provides the unprecedented stability needed to achieve more precise biopsies. The use of robotic technology to treat lung cancer, as well as a myriad of other cancers, comes with tremendous benefits to patients including fewer complications, less blood loss, lower risk of infection, a shorter hospital stay, less pain, and a faster return to normal life. Further advancements in Jupiter Medical Center’s surgical programs will be initiated through the generosity of the Ruane Family Foundation. The Foundation’s gift of $5 million to support Surgical Institute programs is the largest gift received to date to support the Surgical Institute. In recognition of the family’s philanthropy, the surgical concourse will be named the Ruane Family Surgical Concourse.

Foundation THE NEXT LEVEL IN EMERGENCY CARE The Emergency Department plans for a new wing thanks to a $3 million gift from the Attilio and Beverly Petrocelli Foundation. Soon to be named the Petrocelli Emergency Center, this much needed addition to emergency care includes eight fast-track bays to assist patients with less-acute medical needs. With the expanded capability of identifying patients who require less advanced care and treating them more quickly, the Emergency Department will be able to reduce wait times and provide a better patient experience for all emergency patients. The renovation will also include the purchase of advanced clinical equipment, spacious patient and triage rooms, a more functional layout for clinicians with state-of-the-art technologies to handle higher patient volumes, and larger waiting areas for loved ones. This expansion achieves the ultimate goal of streamlining emergency services for greater efficiency while providing world-class care in a comforting environment for patients and loved ones during a medical crisis. NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE GROWTH Neonatal Intensive Care services will be expanding thanks to a $1 million gift from Frank DiMino and the Frank DiMino Family Foundation. The generous donation will make a big impact on Jupiter Medical Center’s smallest patients by further developing clinical care for babies as small as 1,000 grams. Jupiter Medical Center will also be hiring a nurse educator and an in-house laborist while undergoing an expansion of postpartum space. The DiMino gift was recognized with the naming of one of the Pods within the Level II De George Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. GROWING THE GENETICS PROGRAM Retired, professional golfer Raymond Floyd and his wife made a very personal and generous gift to support the new BRCA Genetics program. The program, which helps identify BRCA gene mutations early to help prevent the development of breast and ovarian cancers, will use the donation for programmatic and financial assistance for qualified patients who are undergoing oncology treatment at Jupiter Medical Center.


We are grateful for the generosity of our “community over this past year and look forward to building upon our success in this time of historical growth and transformation. – Michael Morsberger, Chief Philanthropy Officer

While our primary focus at Jupiter Medical Center is quality, safety and an exceptional patient experience, we are also committed to being active in our community and giving back to the people we serve. Jupiter Medical Center promotes a vibrant culture both inside our walls and outside in the community. During the challenges of 2021, our culture grew even stronger and everyone at Jupiter Medical Center drew together to support each other and those around us. Numerous special events were held on campus, giving Jupiter Medical Center’s physicians, nurses, supprt team members and volunteers a chance to come together for moments of friendship, support and camaraderie. We were also active in the community, sponsoring many events and sharing important health messages with our community.

During the challenging times of this past year, our team members at Jupiter Medical Center have gone above and beyond to ensure each patient not only receives exceptional care, but is treated with compassion and an unwavering commitment to healing. Each year the Jupiter Medical Center Foundation honors caregivers who have made an outstanding impact on patients and their loved ones. Our grateful patients identified more than two dozen individual caregivers and departments over the past year by gifting the Foundation. These donors’ generosity will help us continue our mission of providing world-class care and expanding services, technology, and infrastructure.

CEO Message: Looking Forward As we reflect on the past year, while much of it was overshadowed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have many achievements to commemorate. Together, we embarked on a healing journey—mourning the loss of social engagement, loss of normalcy and often the loss of loved ones. While the year amplified the resilience of our team and our community, it did not alter our mission. In many ways, we matured; our understanding of medicine grew with the advent of new vaccines and treatments, and our compassion for our community deepened. The dedication to our mission was more evident than ever. In the coming months, we plan to increase the depth and breadth of services available to our patients through several expansion projects. As the Emergency Department is often considered the front door to a hospital, our priority is enhancing the emergency experience for our patients, families, and first responders. The planned $4 million investment will add eight private ER bays, increasing our current capacity by 25%. The Emergency Department will also undergo an operational restructuring with the creation of a “Fast Track” area for patients with ailments not serious enough to require admission and a separate dedicated team for patients requiring hospitalization. We thank our area first responders for their trust in us and look forward to expanding access to care for all types of emergencies. Nowhere is our vision more apparent than in our plans for a new 90,000+ square foot Surgical Institute. In response to growing demand resulting in increasingly complex diagnoses, we are adding 16 state-of-the-art operating rooms and two hybrid rooms to be operational in 2023. We applaud our world-class medical staff for their commitment to innovation and look forward to creating operating rooms of the future to support their leading-edge care. The pandemic further highlighted the importance of patient-centered care for the critically ill. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we will soon renovate our intensive care unit to serve our most acute patients. The expansion will result in enhancements to one of our busiest departments. Quality, safety, and an exceptional patient experience have distinguished Jupiter Medical Center as a leading hospital for decades. The tradition continues, as reflected in our quality and safety rankings. For the seventh time in a row, Jupiter Medical Center received an “A” rating in patient safety from the Leapfrog Group, and most recently, we were named as a Top Hospital by the Leapfrog group. Those accolades, along with the others, are a direct reflection of the commitment of our incredible medical staff and JMC team members. Every member of our team is acutely aware of the significant role that they play in the lives of our patients and their families. Their dedication to providing a safe environment where they have assured the highest quality of care is at the core of our mission. Our campus reflects our vision for expansion and attracting and retaining exceptional clinical talent is at the cornerstone of our growth. Our medical staff and clinical teams are the finest in the nation. They are more inspired than ever to deliver world-class care through clinical research, innovation, and technology. We embark upon the next year more prepared than ever to deliver the depth and breadth of world-class healthcare services that our community deserves. On behalf of the leadership team, I extend my sincerest thanks to our boards, medical staff, donors and the entire JMC team for fulfilling our mission. Most importantly, thank you to our patients and families for entrusting us with their most prized possession – their health and well-being.
