In 2019, Eastern Long Island Hospital joined with Stony Brook Medicine to preserve the mission of our founders to better serve our community. SBELIH welcomed General Surgeons of Stony Brook Medicine Meeting House Lane Medical Practice to our Surgical Center of Excellence. A new Mastery in General Surgery Fellowship program provides surgical fellows with four months of rural surgery experience and improves surgical physician staffing in the SBELIH Operating Rooms and Emergency Department. SBELIH has also joined forces with the Mollie Biggane Melanoma Foundation to provide all inpatients with skin cancer assessment and education, evaluating the skin of all patients for lesions and cancers while educating them on skin cancer and protective behaviors. 

At SBELIH, inpatients are under the care of world-renowned hospitalists, physicians who specialize in inpatient medicine and taking care of hospitalized patients in place of a primary care provider. SBELIH is fully accredited by the Joint Commission and has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval.
