                                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.”
