      Jupiter Medical Center Raises Nearly $1.8 Million

      For COVID-19 Relief Fund

         Support from donors is needed to sustain Jupiter
       Medical Center at any time, but it is particularly critical in
       times of crisis. In the height of the COVID-19 pandemic,
       Jupiter Medical Center Foundation received nearly $1.8
       million in philanthropic donations.
         “We are extremely grateful for the generosity of the
       community and our donors during this uncertain time,”
       said Liv Vesely, president of Jupiter Medical Center
       Foundation. “Gifts received are helping to offset losses
       due to decreased volumes, and have allowed us to purchase
       additional medical equipment to address the hospital’s
       highest priority needs.”
