Southampton Hospital and Stony Brook University will be announcing the signing of a nonbinding letter of intent toward the building of a new medical facility on the Stony Brook Southampton campus, which will replace the hospital on Meeting House Lane in Southampton Village that opened in 1909.
Before any final agreement moves forward, both parties will undergo a due diligence process. The plan is for funds to be raised through private donations to build a new 125-bed facility that will be part of the Stony Brook Medicine health care system, although the exact location on the campus remains undetermined. Southampton Hospital has had an affiliation with Stony Brook since 2008.
“Southampton Hospital can provide a valuable teaching and research environment for Stony Brook University students,” said Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D. in a statement, “contributing highly trained healthcare professionals to meet the East End’s needs as the population grows and ages.”
