Eastern Long Island Hospital to join forces with Stony Brook University Hospital

The board of trustees of Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport, N.Y., has voted to affiliate with Stony Brook (N.Y.) University Hospital.

ELIH's board has focused on finding a strategic partner for the last several months, said Thomas E. Murray Jr., chairman of the board of trustees for ELIH. "We believe by joining Stony Brook University Hospital, the stewardship of the hospital's mission to care for the residents of the North Fork of Long Island is in good hands," he said.

ELIH President and CEO Paul J. Connor III said the two organizations will immediately begin developing a long-term strategic plan. "While the delivery of healthcare and especially hospital care is rapidly changing, becoming a part of Stony Brook University Hospital will allow ELIH to make this complex transition while continuing to carry out our long-time promise to the community," he said.
