“I can’t express my
gratitude enough to the
caring and supportive
physicians and nurses
at JFK Medical Center.
They made me feel
comfortable and
safe every step
of the way. Their
support made
a traumatic
experience,
easier for
me and my
family.”

Orthopedic Institute
The Orthopedic Institute at JFK Medical Center
is the first and most experienced hospital on
Florida’s East Coast to be designated by The Joint
Commission as a Center of Joint Distinction. We
take a comprehensive approach to the evaluation,
treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal
injuries. By integrating the primary care physician
and surgeon with a host of clinical support staff, we
are able to develop customized treatment plans that
help patients return to maximum function as quickly
and safely as possible. This collaborative approach
enables our clinical team to properly evaluate and
prepare patients by continuously monitoring and
managing their progress. This unique continuum of
care produces outstanding clinical results and high
patient-satisfaction rates.
Emergency Services
JFK Medical Center treats 78,000 patients in our
ER annually, more than any other hospital in Palm
Beach County. We deliver 24/7 access staffed with
board-certified emergency physicians and expert
emergency staff.
In 2012, JFK Medical Center opened the first off-site
ER in Palm Beach County, in Palm Beach Gardens.
We quickly followed this up, by opening our second
location in Western Boynton Beach. These facilities
provide the surrounding communities with 24-hour
access to experienced, board certified emergency
room physicians, state-of-the-art imaging and
diagnostic equipment, and a fully equipped
laboratory and offers a full range of emergency
services for children and adults.
Behavioral Health Services
Our 31-bed behavioral health unit offers a safe,
soothing and comfortable environment. We
provide adult acute psychiatric inpatient care
and are a designated Baker Act receiving
facility that treats a wide variety of behavioral
health diagnoses. Our program includes
individual therapy, group psychotherapy,
occupational therapy, family therapy and
medication management.
Residency Program
JFK Medical Center is proud to be the
main teaching site in collaboration with
The University of Miami Miller School of
Medicine Regional Palm Beach Campus.
Our teaching programs include residencies
in internal medicine and surgery, and a
fellowship in hospice and palliative care.
JFK also offers a podiatric surgical residency
program. Having such robust residency
programs further enhances the quality
of care we provide to our patients at JFK.
