Palm Beach North Industry Insight: Jupiter Medical Center

Jupiter Medical Center Scheduled to Open Two New Urgent Care Facilities
When you spike a fever, twist an ankle or your child develops an ear infection, you can’t always wait for a physician appointment. Your first reaction may be to head straight to the nearest emergency room. You’ll certainly get the medical care you need, but maybe not the convenient or cost-effective health care consumers want. More and more savvy patients are realizing urgent care centers can fill a vital need as they try to maintain their overall health and wellness and that of their loved ones.
Jupiter Medical Center currently operates two urgent care facilities in Jupiter, and two more are scheduled to open next year – one in Palm Beach Gardens and another in downtown West Palm Beach. In addition to urgent care services for patients seeking treatment of a minor illness or injury, we also offer basic imaging, lab tests, travel-related vaccinations and routine physicals, as well as flu shots and other maintenance appointments.

Trustee Spotlight: Mike Rajewski, Sinclair Broadcast Group

For over 25 years, Mike has been working in the Broadcast Television industry acquiring marketing experience from coast to coast with companies such as Paramount, COX, Viacom, CBS and Hearst. He joined Sinclair in October 2013 and moved to West Palm Beach as General Sales Manager of WPEC CBS12. He was promoted to Director of Sales in April 2015 and now oversees all aspects of Sales for the company’s four television stations and digital platforms here.

“I am a Broadcaster and Marketer committed to growing the businesses of our advertising partners and serving our community. I am passionate about the medium because Broadcast Television is the most powerful way to deliver a message, and the only means of delivering that message to a large number of people simultaneously. It’s the only mass medium left. It works, and I’ve witnessed its power and influence time and time again.”
