In Palm Beach North specifically, the 327-bed Jupiter Medical Center has earned HealthGrade’s “America’s 50 best” Award-winner for three consecutive years and last year scored in the top 10% nationwide for medical excellence in many specialties, as rated by CareChex, a hospital care rating organization. The 199-bed Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center was deemed one of Healthgrades® 50 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Surgery™ in 2016 and among the top 10% in the nation for Overall Cardiac Services.

These are just two of the region’s respected facilities, along with acclaimed physicians and practices spanning every medical specialty.

County-wide, a number of county hospitals host clinical clerkships from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Florida Atlantic University Schmidt College of Medicine, Nova Southeastern College of Osteopathy, and more.
