The 7,509-square-foot house, built in 1991, sits on 0.5 acres. According to the listing, the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home was completely redone in 2006. The property includes a two-story guest house, a theater room, pool, 90 feet of waterfront and a dock that can accommodate a yacht up to 60 feet.

Admirals Cove properties also require purchasing a membership to the Admirals Cove Golf Club, according to the listing.

Abramson, a longtime Jupiter resident, founded U.S. Healthcare in 1982 and headed the Blue Bell, Penn.-based company until he sold it to Aetna in 1996 for $8.9 billion, the AP reported. Abramson made $900 million in the sale, according to the outlet.

Abramson and his wife Madlyn Abramson donated $100 million to the University of Pennsylvania the following year to establish the Abramson Cancer Center. Madlyn Abramson was the honorary chair of the center’s leadership council until her death in April 2020.
