The former campus of Southampton College could become the new home of Southampton Hospital under an agreement being negotiated between Stony Brook University, which owns the campus, and Southampton Hospital, officials announced Monday.

Representatives with Stony Brook, which is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system and Southampton Hospital, which is privately run, have signed a non-binding letter of intent in which Southampton Hospital “would join the Stony Brook Medicine healthcare system, as the two hospitals work more closely to improve healthcare quality,” officials said.

Stony Brook Medicine is the healthcare system that runs Stony Brook University Hospital.

Under the proposal, Southampton Hospital would provide care under Stony Brook University Hospital’s state operating license, officials said.
