After Mr. Kelly welcomed guests, he asked Mr. Chaloner to the stage, who revealed that after a decade of discussion, Southampton Hospital was officially a part of the Stony Brook Medicine health care system, which allows patients at the hospital access to significant resources and advanced technology. The collaboration includes a new cardiac catheterization laboratory, part of The Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart & Stroke Center and the Phillips Family Cancer Center, which will make top-level cancer care more readily available to East End residents.

Stony Brook Southampton Hospital is recognized by the NYS Department of Health as a provisional Level III adult trauma center, the first one on Long Island’s East End. This designation enables the Hospital to provide care to the most critically injured patients. During the summer season when the regional population swells, it is even more critically important that trauma care be accessible close by. Faster treatment for trauma patients can mean the difference between life and death, so support for this essential service is vital.
