JFK Heart Hospital is also an Accredited Chest Pain Center, a Primary Stroke Center, and was the first hospital in Palm Beach County to perform transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR). In 2021, JFK Hospital received the American Heart Association Mission: Get With The Guidelines achievement award for their quality improvement efforts for cardiovascular patients to receive efficient and coordinated care.
