Core Measures: Getting to the Core of Quality

Jupiter Medical Center is also proud to be designated a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures by the Joint Commission, the independent organization that accredits and certifies health care providers across the United States.

Core measures describe the care that should be provided to patients in the hospital, based on research and national standards. For example, was aspirin prescribed at arrival and discharge for patients with a heart attack? Were antibiotics administered within one hour prior to surgical incision and discontinued within 48 hours after the end of surgery?

Jupiter Medical Center is leading the way in quality even among some of the most prestigious academic health care institutions in the nation.
