The new Shirley Medical Center will offer a multitude of medical specialties
A new medical facility offering family medicine, emergency care and an array of medical specialties will arrive in Shirley this spring, Northwell Health announced this week.
Northwell Peconic Bay Medical Center (PBMC) will operate the medical campus located at 855 Montauk Highway. The center will include five medical specialties: orthopedics, gastroenterology, cardiology, vascular surgery and urology.
“Northwell Health’s mission is to improve the health of the communities it serves and is committed to providing the highest quality clinical care, and this new facility is the epitome of that mission in action,” said the PBMC Executive Director Amy E. Loeb. âThe people of Shirley and the surrounding communities deserve to have access to the high quality medical treatment and services they need, wherever they live, and we are delighted that this magnificent healthcare facility is coming to fruition. “
The expansion at Shirley complements the existing ambulatory care facility at Riverhead Hospital at the Moriches Center. Officials said this was part of PBMC’s ongoing initiative in Suffolk County to help underserved communities that only have remote access to specialist and primary medical care.
The Moriches Center location offers family medicine and primary care, but will soon target providers of general surgery and colorectal surgery.
The Shirley facility _ which will share the parking lot with Applebee’s – will be Northwell’s 22nd outpatient center in 16 hamlets in Eastern Suffolk County. PBMC also operates Central Suffolk County branches in Manorville and Shoreham.
âThis new facility will provide much needed convenience to the Shirley community in terms of primary and specialty medical care,â said Steve Bello, senior vice president and executive director of the Eastern Region of Northwell Health. âPeconic Bay Medical Center has been part of the fabric of the Eastern Suffolk County community for decades, and we are proud of this project and the benefits we can help provide to residents.
âTime and health are our most precious possessions, and our goal for this facility is to improve both for those who live in the surrounding areas,â added Bello.
