Jupiter Medical Center | Pediatric Emergency Department/Observation Unit/Critical Care Unit

About This Project

Stephen Boruff, AIA Architects + Planners, Inc. was commissioned to provide full architectural and engineering services for the additions and renovations to approximately 17,600  square feet of space on the first and second floors of Jupiter Medical Center. This addition  and renovation will provide space for a new 12 bed Pediatric Emergency Department, an 18 bed Observation Unit and a 6 bed expansion of the existing Critical Care Unit.  Working in conjunction with Nicklaus Children’s Healthcare Foundation, the new Emergency Department will allow the hospital to add a pediatric  specialist consult using telehealth technology and dedicated pediatric emergency room doctors at peak hours.  The new Emergency Department will provide a dedicated pediatric unit and give families their own waiting area as well as treatment rooms in a child-friendly environment.  The Observation Unit will provide supervised care with lower lengths of stay resulting in lower costs to the  patients. The expanded Critical Care Unit will provide additional bed space to an already overcrowded unit.  All work was designed in accordance with the 2010 FGI Guidelines for the Design and Construction of Healthcare Facilities.
