This is an exciting time at JFK Medical Center.
Our facility continues to produce strong volumes,
superb clinical programs and the latest in
technology. In 2012, we attained a number of major
accomplishments. JFK was designated as one of
the few sites in Florida, and the first in Palm Beach
County, to offer transcatheter aortic valve
replacement (TAVR) therapy. This promising new
technique gives hope to those considered too high
risk for traditional heart valve replacement, or
those who were previously considered inoperable.
Last year we also opened the first off-site emergency
services department in Palm Beach County. Our
locations in Palm Beach Gardens and Boynton
Beach provide the community with 24-hour access
to experienced, board-certified emergency room
physicians, state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic
equipment and a fully equipped laboratory.
Looking forward, we will continue to bring
breakthroughs in cardiac and cancer care,
as well as the latest diagnostic tools and
procedures to JFK, in order to care for
the community in the best way possible.
