Peconic Bay Medical Center (PBMC) has officially unveiled its much-anticipated strategic plan for expanding the physical space of the hospital and advancing healthcare services available to Eastern Suffolk County. The initiative is intended to elevate the patient experience and lay the foundation for bringing advanced specialized care to Suffolk County.

Along with implementing new, life-saving technology, PBMC outlined a goal to add 6,600 square feet to the emergency department, increase bed capacity, and establish a brand-new private Center for Women and Infants. The campaign to support these efforts was introduced during a celebration at the hospital led by PBMC’s Executive Director, Amy Loeb, EdD, MBA, R.N., who also announced that PBMC has already raised over $30 million of its $50 million goal to support the expansion.

“This plan is the next step in the evolution of Peconic Bay Medical Center, and we’re incredibly excited to unveil it to the community,” said Dr. Loeb. “Since joining Northwell Health in 2016, PBMC has transformed into a multi-award-winning hospital complete with the Kanas Regional Heart Center, Corey Critical Care Pavilion, Level III Trauma Center and is the only hospital with an ‘A’ safety rating on the East End. All of this growth has been led by a steadfast vision of embracing our community’s health and wellness needs, and this investment in our community will lead to a higher level of specialized care in this region. We thank our generous donors for helping us to make this vision a reality, and we are excited to see it come to fruition.”

The focal point of the strategic plan is the expansion of PBMC’s emergency department, which will be renamed the Poole Family Trauma & Emergency Center in honor of a landmark $5 million contribution made by local philanthropists Thomas and Mary Jane Poole. Due to the region’s growing population and PBMC’s reputation for sophistication and advanced medical care, the demand for critical care — strokes, heart attacks and other traumas — has grown exponentially, with PBMC seeing twice as many patients as it was initially designated to serve.

The expansion will increase the emergency department’s capacity by 75 percent. In addition to increased emergency department capacity, the 6,600-square-foot expansion project will offer a dual bay trauma unit, additional cardiac response technology, comprehensive radiology capabilities and enhanced efficiency. This expansion will save lives and make high-level care more accessible to all.
