A new day continues to dawn for Peconic Bay Medical Center on Friday as a dedication is slated for a new ambulatory campus in Manorville.
As part of the "Building Upon the Promise of Excellence Campaign," PBMC announced that it received its largest philanthropic gift to date from the Louis Feil Charitable Lead Annuity Trust.
In appreciation of the $5 million donation and in recognition of the Feil family’s support, PBMC announced that it will be naming the new ambulatory campus in Manorville "The Gertrude and Louis Feil Campus for Ambulatory Care."
PBMC announced the creation a new ambulatory health campus, to be located in Manorville.
The new 25,000 square foot site is located on Route 111, just south of Exit 70 on the Long Island Expressway. Plans pitched by developer Parkridge Development include a new CVS pharmacy and several other retail stores located at the site.
"PBMC Health is extremely excited to bring a new ambulatory campus to the residents of Manorville and the surrounding communities,” said Andrew Mitchell, president and CEO of PBMC Health and Peconic Bay Medical Center, at the time. "This is a model ambulatory program for the future just as the Kanas Center for Advanced Surgery at Peconic Bay Medical Center was the model for advanced surgical care for East End residents."
PBMC Health is the umbrella organization that encompasses Peconic Bay Medical Center, Peconic Bay Home Care, Peconic Bay Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation, and a large number of physicians.
The new, four-building campus aims to meet the needs of an ever-growing population and the goal of developing medical services beyond hospital care, with an eye toward preventative health care.
Plans include a first PBMC Health building, that includes a primary/family care office, an ob/gyn practice, pediatrics and an urgent care center.
Next up will be a second building that will include a center for digestive diseases, urology services and general surgery.
Plans for the remaining buildings are still in development; PBMC Health is currently investigating opportunities and partnerships to develop diabetes care at the Manorville campus.
"Manorville and the surrounding communities have had limited access to advanced medical services due to the lack of medical offices in the area," said Sherry Patterson, chairperson of Peconic Bay Medical Center. "PBMC Health is thrilled to help fill this unmet need and provide quality healthcare close to home."
Friday's dedication, which is slated to kick off at 4 p.m. will be attended by Sherry Patterson, chair, PBMC hospital board, Andrew J. Mitchell, president and CEO, PBMC Health, John Kanas, President and CEO of Bank United and PBMC Health Benefactor, the Feil Family, represented by Jeffrey J. Feil, CEO of the Feil Organization and president of the Feil Family Foundation, Gordon Huszagh, chair, Foundation Board, and Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine.
