Report to the Community

Eastern Long Island Hospital (ELIH) is committed to providing the North Fork and Shelter Island communities with the highest level of patient care. As the first hospital on the East End of Long Island, ELIH has operated under that commitment for 113 years, caring for families, friends, and neighbors alike. Your health and wellbeing are always our first priority.

Much of ELIH’s continued expansion and growth can be attributed to our caring community.  Your support is, and always has been, an integral part of our success. The medical field is ever-advancing. As a hospital dedicated to providing patients with the best care, we must evolve as well. Thanks to your support, we have been able to maintain a contemporary and caring environment for our patients.

As we near the finalization of our affiliation with Stony Brook Medicine, we have already reaped numerous benefits from this new relationship, supporting our mission to provide high quality healthcare services for the North Fork and Shelter Island communities. This year, we welcomed three new general surgeons from Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Meeting House Lane Surgical Group: Dr. Sampath Subramaniam, Dr. Sang I. Pak, and Dr. George D. Keckeisen.

This is just one example of the numerous ways our relationship with Stony Brook will provide world-class medicine for the North Fork and Shelter Island, close to home. It will create local healthcare options that do not currently exist. Together with Stony Brook University Hospital and our sister hospital, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, specialized surgeons and physicians will be available in your own back yard here at Eastern Long Island Hospital.

As the newest member of Stony Brook Medicine, patients receiving care at the future “Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital” will have access to many Stony Brook facilities that are the first of their kind. These facilities include Long Island’s only accredited Heart Failure Program, an accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI, and Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s, Celiac Disease/Gluten Sensitivity Center, and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Center.

The Stony Brook affiliation will bring many new resources to ELIH, but the hospital’s main source of support has and always will be the community. Your friendship and support will be more important than ever, and every cent raised by the ELIH Foundation will stay right here at Eastern Long Island Hospital. Thanks to your ongoing philanthropy, our major fundraising events― including the annual Summer Gala and Golf Classic― are breaking records and raising more funds than ever before. Last year, we kicked off a new fundraising event, our first annual 5K Walk/Run. This report is a testament to the numerous generous individuals that recognize and support our mission and commitment to excellence.

Thank you all.
