$41 MILLION --> $300 MILLION
A recent partnership with Mount Sinai Heart New York allows JMC to move forward in becoming an open heart program. Progress was shown in the fall with the development of the newly renovated, more spacious Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Center. This premier partnership also brings new technological advances to heart patients in our community such as the implementation of the new FDA-approved SYNERGY™ Stent.
How does JMC achieve a winning culture?
At Jupiter Medical Center, multiple strategies are used to ensure team members understand, embrace and exemplify the culture so that they can be winners together. The result of a winning culture at Jupiter Medical Center means the best quality outcomes for patients.
NICE CATCH AWARD
Experience shows that capturing data from “near misses” is critical to safe care. Team members who demonstrate their commitment to keeping patients safe by “speaking up” to prevent potential problems are recognized and commended at department director meetings. This effort, named the Nice Catch Award, helps us gain insight into events that aren’t necessary to report through our electronic incident reporting system but pivotal to implementing safer processes for care delivery and a factor to achieving higher standards of patient care.
Team members were encouraged to submit their entry of a process improvement or waste elimination project, attend the event and then vote for their favorite. The event was a huge success with 21 projects featured and 250 attendees who enjoyed learning about them. Judges selected winners based on Teamwork, Financial Performance, Service Excellence/Quality Improvement, and Innovation.
