Greenport - Quannacut at Eastern Long Island Hospital recently celebrated the completion of its extreme makeover with a ribbon cutting reception. Those in attendance met the behavioral health team and toured the newly designed unit.

"ELIH is very excited about the renovation which accessed open roof-top space to build out a therapeutic recreation area," says Paul J. Connor III, President/CEO for Eastern Long Island Hospital. "Even though we did not add a great deal of square-footage, we did allow for better use of the space overall, making the unit more functional as well as contemporary."

Five additional beds were added to Quannacut, the addiction services area earlier in the year, doubling its capacity for detox patients on the unit. Inpatient rehab can now accommodate 30 patients, with 20 beds for sub-acute care and 10 beds for acute care/detox. The approval of five additional beds for psychiatry will increase patient capacity on that unit from 18 to 23 expanding ELIH to a 90-bed hospital.

Quannacut Inpatient and Outpatient programs are medically managed with treatment plans structured to meet each individual's needs. The treatment team is multi-disciplined with board certified physicians, licensed nurses, credentialed alcoholism and substance abuse counselors, licensed social workers, recreational therapists and a registered dietitian.

Eastern Long Island Hospital is located at 201 Manor Place in Greenport.
