Jupiter Volunteer Clinic Open

The Town of Jupiter, Jupiter Medical Center, Palm Beach County Health Department and El Sol- Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center, opened  the Jupiter Volunteer Clinic, Saturday, Feb 11.

In response to the growing number of uninsured/underinsured individuals living in the Jupiter area who have limited access to health care, the partners listed above, along with input from the Florida Public Health Institute, have developed an innovative solution.  By maximizing existing resources, this group has created a collaborative model which includes: space, supplies and staff provided by the Palm Beach County Health Department; ancillary services including Laboratory and Imaging donated by Jupiter Medical Center; and the invaluable dedication of volunteers (physicians, nurses, physician assistants, medical students, and interpreters) who are generously donating their time and skill. In addition, the Quantum Foundation has awarded grant funding to El Sol to support the work of a clinic coordinator.

The Jupiter Volunteer Clinic is located in the Palm Beach County Health Department Building at 6405 Indiantown Road. The Clinic offers adult primary care medical services to people in need in Northern Palm Beach County most Saturdays between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.. Appointments may be scheduled  by contacting Diane Williams, Jupiter Volunteer Clinic Coordinator at 561-506-6487.

“Find a Medical Home Day” will take place 10am-6pm, Feb. 11, and will offer health screenings, health benefit eligibility screening, tours of various medical clinics throughout Palm Beach County, including the Jupiter Volunteer Clinic.

For information about the Jupiter Volunteer Clinic including volunteer opportunities, please contact: Diane Williams, Jupiter Volunteer Clinic Coordinator, 561-506-6487 or Amy Pepper, Project Manager, Jupiter Medical Center, amypepper@bellsouth.net.
