Jupiter Medical Center announces the opening of a new urgent care center in Stuart at 2628 SE Federal Highway. Located in the new Baron Shoppes, just south of the Regency Square Shopping Center, the new urgent care center gives residents of Martin County greater access to Jupiter Medical Center’s high-quality care.

“Our urgent care centers have the distinction of being backed by a world-class hospital system and a team of leading medical professionals,” said Jupiter Medical Center President and Chief Executive Officer Don McKenna. “The new Stuart location reflects our commitment to ensuring that our neighbors to the north receive the same level of urgent care and services that we provide in our Palm Beach County locations.”
Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care gives area residents immediate access to high-quality health care and services in locations that are close to home, without the wait or expense of an emergency room visit. Like the hospital’s four urgent care locations in Palm Beach County, Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care Stuart provides affordable walk-in care for adults and children after hours, on weekends and even on holidays. All five centers are open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Each site offers complete urgent care services for minor emergencies and illnesses, as well as on-site laboratory testing and x-rays to enable rapid diagnosis and treatment. Services to support healthier living also are available, such as flu shots and other immunizations; lab services; travel medicine; school, camp and sports physicals; pre-employment testing; and preoperative clearance.
All five state-of-the-art centers are supervised by physician medical directors and staffed by a team of certified physician assistants, advanced registered nurse practitioners, radiology technologists and urgent care technologists. Residents of Stuart and the surrounding communities will be able to obtain convenient care at the urgent care center, as well as the hospital’s wide range of medical services in Jupiter, should the need arise.
“Our new Stuart location is staffed by an excellent team of providers – and we’re backed by a medical center that is ranked among the best in the region,” said Dr. Gary Bradley, medical director of the Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care in Stuart. “Our patients can feel secure knowing that their X-rays are being read by the same highly qualified board certified radiologists serving patients at Jupiter Medical Center, and if they require specialty care, we can direct them to Jupiter Medical Center physicians or specialists—maintaining a continuum of care and service.”
