Our local residents continue to reap the benefits of ELIH becoming SBELIH and joining Stony Brook Medicine. We have already added specialists from this highly respected academic facility to our planned Surgical Center of Excellence. Physicians such as Dr. Melany Hughes, Dr. Sampath Subramaniam, Dr. Sang Pak, and Dr. George Keckeisen are already bringing their extensive experience with advanced surgical techniques and leading edge technology right to our operating room. Residents of our North Fork and Shelter Island community now have access to highly specialized interventions closer to home.
