South Nassau to Host Information Day In Long Beach About Expanding Services on the Barrier Island

Posted: Mar. 5, 2015

South Nassau Communities Hospital encourages the residents of Long Beach and surrounding South Shore communities to attend an Information Day to be held Wednesday, March 18, from noon - 6PM at the Long Beach Hotel to learn about plans to provide additional healthcare services on the barrier island.

The six-hour information fair is being held in an effort to foster increased dialogue between residents of the barrier island and members of the hospital administration and staff in an informal, one-on-one setting.The March 18th Information Day is the first of a series of information sessions the hospital is planning to hold throughout its service area during the year.

“The exchange of information and the questions and comments received during the session will be welcomed and valued by our project team and will be used as a guide for us as we embark on the next phase of South Nassau’s mission to provide a high-quality healthcare delivery system that meets the needs of the communities now and in the many years to follow,” said Richard J. Murphy, president and CEO of South Nassau Communities Hospital.

The information session will include details about the planned upgrade of the South Nassau Urgent Care Center to an off-campus, hospital-based emergency services department. In addition, South Nassau experts will be available throughout the session to answer residents’ questions about the severe structural and mechanical damage to the former Long Beach Medical Center, building demolition process, and preliminary plans for former Long Beach Medical Center site and the delivery of medical and healthcare services.

Residents are encouraged to come at any time between noon and 6 pm to view the exhibit and speak personally to South Nassau representatives.

South Nassau is the only hospital on Long Island to win four major awards for quality in recent months, including for nursing excellence, patient safety and top rankings from U.S. News & World Report & from the Joint Commission.
