Stony Brook University Hospital, Southampton Hospital merger approved

The merger between Stony Brook (N.Y.) University Hospital and Southampton (N.Y.) Hospital has been unanimously approved by a State University of New York trustees committee, according to a Newsday report.

The long-planned merger dates back to 2012 when the two organizations signed a letter of intent to affiliate.

Under the deal, Southampton would lease its facilities to Stony Brook, according to the report. The agreement also includes a provision for a new $225 million hospital to be built. Southampton CEO Robert Chaloner told Newsday the project is something the organizations would be "working, planning and fundraising for."

The transaction still requires regulatory approval.
