We have the Center for Advanced Wound Healing as there are many diabetics in the community who need the services provided by this center. We also have the Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart and Stroke Center that focuses on a variety of clinical health issues, including vascular diseases. Finally, we have the Kathleen D. Allen Maternity Center, providing important services to new and growing families. When will Southampton Hospital become a part of Stony Brook University Hospital? We have an agreement in place, and this should occur in the next several months. We are very excited about this. When will The Phillips Family Cancer Center open? We plan to break ground in the fall of 2016 on a site along County Road 39 in Southampton. Our goal is to open in late 2017. This center will provide radiation and chemotherapy as well as support services that will be conveniently located in our community. What will Southampton Hospital look like in ten years? My dream is that there will be a brand new hospital on the grounds of the old Southampton College. We hope to have a number of buildings on the site. We expect to have a number of laboratory and testing facilities as well as a variety of community-based health facilities operated by our hospital throughout the South Fork. How important is philanthropy? The hospital could not have started without philanthropy and it would not survive as well. Jean, you have hosted some of the most successful fundraisers the hospital has ever had. We are lucky to have you and others who help us.
