West Palm Beach, FL – Today, it’s official, West Palm Hospital is now JFK Medical Center North Campus.
With this change, JFK Medical Center will be the largest medical center in Palm Beach County and provide patients access to a larger, more versatile network of physicians and services. Now JFK Medical Center includes 717 beds, two campuses and two offsite emergency rooms (Boynton Beach and Palm Beach Gardens).
JFK and West Palm Hospital are both HCA affiliates and share the same commitment to patients, physicians, staff and the community.
“Both hospitals have a long and proud history of serving this community, and are looking forward to combining efforts to meet the needs of patients throughout Palm Beach County,” said Michael G. Joseph, HCA East Florida Division President. “Together, they will continue to provide excellent, coordinated patient care that encompasses nearly every medical specialty and is delivered conveniently and close to home.”
With access to two campuses, more patients in Palm Beach County will be able to access specialty services such as Cardiac, Neurosciences, Orthopedics, Robotics, Oncology, and more. The change also leverages the excellence of two well established healthcare facilities with track records of consistent delivery of high quality care.
