Robins & Morton breaks ground on surgical center

Jupiter Medical Center’s Surgical Institute will help it better serve Palm Beach County

Members of Jupiter Medical Center, Robins & Morton and Earl Swensson Associates break ground at the site of the new Surgical Institute.

Birmingham-headquartered Robins & Morton has broken ground on Jupiter Medical Center’s new two-story, 90,000-square-foot Surgical Institute.

The institute will expand and renovate the hospital’s surgical department, with 16 operating rooms and two hybrid operating rooms to support the latest advancements in surgical technologies and techniques.

“Our physicians are performing some of the most advanced procedures available, and this new Surgical Institute will allow us to continue to be on the forefront of technology,” said Dr. Amit Rastogi, CEO of Jupiter Medical Center.

Robins & Morton will serve as the general contractor, working with Earl Swensson Associates as architect. In preparation for the start of construction, Robins & Morton has demolished a former skilled nursing building on the medical center’s campus. The general contractor will also expand and renovate the campus’ central energy plant.

In addition to the operating rooms, the Surgical Institute will have private consultation rooms, outdoor spaces with a terrace adjacent to the waiting room and covered parking. For the staff, the facility will have anesthesia workrooms, multiple nurses’ stations, offices, and a physician’s lounge with kitchen space.

“Jupiter is the fastest-growing community in Palm Beach County,” said Robins & Morton Operations Manager Johnathan Peavy. “Robins & Morton is honored that Jupiter Medical Center has entrusted us as a partner in their mission to provide comprehensive and advanced surgical care to Palm Beach and Martin counties.”

Construction is expected to be complete in 2023.

In addition to its Birmingham headquarters, Robins & Morton has offices in Charlotte, Dallas, Huntsville, Miami, Nashville, Orlando, San Antonio and Tampa. The firm specializes in the construction of healthcare, hospitality, higher education, entertainment, sports and government buildings.
