Jupiter Medical Center named “Best Heart Center” in Palm Beach County

JUPITER, Fla (April 21, 2021) – Jupiter Medical Center’s Robson Heart & Vascular Institute has been awarded “Best Heart Center” in Palm Beach County by The Best of Palm Beach County Awards 2021. “With its reputation for clinical excellence, safety, and personalized care it has become one of the leading cardiac care facilities in the whole state of Florida.”

When Jupiter Medical Center (JMC) and its Cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Arthur Katz, started a new Cardiothoracic program just last year in April 2020, they partnered with AP Health to meet their surgical staffing needs. AP Health provides JMC with highly skilled Advanced Practice Providers that can meet the demand of this new program.

Dr. Katz is one of the most respected and well-known Cardiothoracic surgeons in the region and spearheads the day-to-day operations of the program as well as the composition of AP Health’s partnership. Directing AP Health’s Jupiter Medical Center team of Cardiothoracic APPs is Daniel Teller, a Certified Physician Assistant with over three decades of experience in helping build Cardiothoracic programs.

Dan and AP Health have played a significant role alongside Dr. Katz in the expansion of this program. With Dan’s unique skill set and wealth of knowledge, he was the perfect match to oversee the patients’ care under Dr. Katz’s supervision. He and the AP team are not only responsible for staffing the operating rooms, pre and postoperative care, and other non-surgical duties; Dan also leads the ongoing education for the Cardiothoracic team and trains other surgical staff to make sure everybody is on the same page about what heart surgery demands.

“The hospital’s rapidly growing Cardiac Care Program continues to add technological advancements, from minimally invasive heart therapies to full cardiac procedures, and the equipment and technologies developed to employ them.” AP Health looks forward to continuing being apart in the development of Palm Beach County’s Best Heart Center.
