South Nassau's Proposed FEMA Projects

South Nassau is proposing to expand health care services at our main campus in Oceanside and in Long Beach, the home of Long Island’s first and only free-standing emergency department. The State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) requires that before these projects can begin, that they be evaluated to consider any potential environmental impacts. On July 7, 2017, South Nassau formally kicked-off the SEQRA process by filing an Environmental Review Form or “EAF” in both the Town of Hempstead and City of Long Beach.

The hospital proposes to spend approximately $45 million on a Medical Arts Pavilion in Long Beach that would be the permanent home of the Long Beach Emergency Department and house the Center for Family Medicine, provide full radiology services, as well other specialty services on a rotating basis. This project would be in addition to the current investment of more than $38 million in the existing Long Beach campus.

An estimated $130 million is planned to upgrade South Nassau’s Oceanside campus to include services that would provide significant benefit to Long Beach, a key ZIP code served by the Oceanside facility, as well as many other South Shore communities. Upgrades are planned to include nearly doubling the size of the Oceanside emergency services space, which houses the only Trauma Center on the South Shore; make key additions and upgrades to the hospital’s surgical suites; and provide additional critical care beds. The hospital’s emergency electrical system also would be upgraded and fortified against future storms. A three-story parking structure on the east lot of One Healthy Way is being proposed. No FEMA funds would be used for the parking structure.

South Nassau intends to invest dollars in both its Long Beach and Oceanside campuses, to maximize benefit to both Long Beach and the South Shore service area of the hospital, which stretches from the Rockaways to the Massapequas.

South Nassau has briefed more than 60 local community, civic and elected leaders about its plans for the FEMA-funded expansion. That process will continue in the weeks and months ahead as hospital officials seek additional input from the communities we serve. The SEQRA process is expected to take at least 18-24 months.
