JFK Medical Center temporarily suspended services at its Freestanding Emergency Room in Boynton Beach as of July 7. Temporarily closing the facility at 10921 S. Jog Road will allow JFK Medical Center to move key clinical staff and physicians to its other facilities across Palm Beach County that are experiencing a greater volume of COVID-19 and suspected COVID-19 patients.
“As a leading health care provider in the community, it is our responsibility to do whatever we can to provide care during this unprecedented challenge,” said Gina Melby, CEO. “Thank you to all of our staff and caregivers – and those throughout our community – for their continued selfless work caring for those in need throughout this crisis.”
JFK Medical Center’s main facility in Atlantis and its North Campus in West Palm Beach will remain open and will continue to treat COVID-19 patients in addition to offering inpatient services.
