The other milestone project within the strategic plan includes the modernization of the South Pavilion, which will aim to create 16 to 20 additional medical beds and establish a dedicated Center for Women and Infants. This facility will feature brand-new private rooms and make much needed comprehensive women’s health services accessible to residents throughout Suffolk County. It will also enable PBMC to increase its level of care for women at all stages of life, including a more advanced level of breast health, urogynecology, tele neonatology and a goal to develop a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). To support this effort, PBMC has recently sold its 2nd Street property and will reinvest the proceeds to create the newly modernized South Pavilion, which will be named after Robert Entenmann.
Peconic Bay Medical Center continues its mission
“With this investment, PBMC will extend access to health care for residents throughout Eastern Suffolk and further eliminate any barriers that once stood in the way,” said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. “PBMC is a hospital dedicated to serving the people of this great community and it has continued to adapt to stay true to that mission as our area’s population grows and our medical needs become more complex. We are excited to be on this journey and are grateful to all those who have contributed to making it possible.”
This campaign is the Peconic Bay Medical Center Foundation’s largest endeavor since 2018 when it unveiled the Kanas Regional Heart Center, made possible by the John and Elaine Kanas Family Foundation, and the Corey Critical Care Pavilion named in honor of Emilie Roy and Michael Corey. In that time, PBMC has been recognized both on Long Island and within the health care industry as one of the elite hospitals in the nation. In 2023, PBMC was rated by Healthgrades as one of America’s top 100 Best for coronary intervention and received five stars for coronary interventional procedures, treatment of heart attack and treatment of stroke, among other five-star designations and awards.
U.S. News & World Report also scored PBMC as high performing in treating heart failure and several other service lines.
“We have set a high standard for ourselves because our community deserves the best, and at each phase of the PBMC’s evolution, we’ve met the challenge with accolades from the healthcare industry,” said Dr. Loeb. “We expect this upcoming expansion to be our most substantial work yet.”Back to HCB News
