Southampton Hospital recently received approval from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to create a Cardiac Catheterization and Electrophysiology Laboratory located at the Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart & Stroke Center. Upon completion, the services will provide East End residents and visitors with life-saving diagnostics and treatment in the local community. Having these facilities close by during a time of emergency can make the difference between life and death.

"We greatly appreciate the Department of Health for recognizing the critical need for a facility of this kind on the South Fork of Long Island," said Robert Chaloner, Hospital President & CEO. "Our application was supported by our Board of Directors, leadership and planners at Stony Brook Medicine, our physicians and Hospital staff, and many members of the communities we serve. This NYSDOH approval brings critical care technology close to home for many people and it is a harbinger of the significant technical advances we will see through our partnership with Stony Brook Medicine."

This new facility will promote improvements in cardiac health outcomes for residents in Eastern Suffolk County. The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory will be an adult PCI-capable laboratory where patients will undergo cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography prodecures to define coronary anatomy and treat stenosis and blockages when indicated using percutaneous intervention such as stenting. Stony Brook University Hospital (SBUH) will oversee the operations. The current cardiac catheterization and EP services from SBUH will be incorporated into the operation of the laboratories at Southampton Hospital.

"Residents of Eastern Long Island will enjoy greater access to timely cardiac care because of the close collaboration and exceptional leadership between Stony Brook Medicine and Southampton Hospital in gaining approval for this new facility," said L. Reuven Pasternak, MD, MPH, MBA, CEO, Stony Brook University Hospital and Vice President for Health Systems, Stony Brook Medicine.

Southampton Hospital is located at 240 Meeting House Lane in Southampton. For more information, call 631-726-8200 or visit www.southamptonhospital.org.
