Registered Nurse Julie Minister Joins the Jupiter Medical Center Bariatric Surgery Team

As the new bariatric nurse at the program, Minister brings a wealth of OR experience


The weight loss surgery team at Jupiter Medical Center, led by world renowned surgeon Jefferson Vaughan, is proud to welcome Julie Minister, Bariatric Nurse Coordinator, to the program. Julie began her nursing career in her native Ireland and emigrated to the United States 17 years ago. Julie has spent her career dedicated to patient care in various settings including, most recently, the operating room. As a certified Operating Room nurse for Jupiter Medical Center in Jupiter, Florida, her experience has proven invaluable in helping surgeons treat those in their most critical time of need. With Julie Minister coordinating the program, those considering bariatric surgery in Palm Beach County and throughout South Florida will have yet another great reason to join the Institute for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery at Jupiter Medical Center.

Bariatric Surgery requires a high level of training and continuing education. “When we perform our bariatric procedures, we want the very best people in the Operating Room,” says Dr. Vaughan. “Julie is one of the most skilled and experienced OR nurses in South Florida and it is a real pleasure to have her as an integral part of our team. ”  Indeed, having the right people to assist patients before, during and after surgery can be the difference between good and great results.

Bariatric surgery is  unique in that a high degree of patient participation and lifestyle modification is required for surgical success. This participation encompasses complete physical and psychological lifestyle changes. Patients can rely on their bariatric program for nutritional support and exercise guidance for years after their procedure. Choosing a program should not only be based on the surgeon’s experience, but also on the team that surrounds them. Julie Minister offers patients the critical support they need for true success after bariatric surgery.
