Revised Visitor Policy

Revised Visitor Policy

At Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital, our priority is the health and safety of our patients and their families. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have revised our visitor policies for all of our locations in order to keep our patients, families and staff safe. While we understand the important role that family members and visitors play in a patient’s healing process, our goal is to keep a safe environment for all. Visitors will be screened and sick visitors will be asked to leave. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.
