Peconic Bay Medical Health System, which includes Peconic Bay Medical Center, is planning to build a new medical campus with ambulance services in Manorville to open next year, according to a statement from the organization.
The new center, located on Route 111 just south of the Long Island Expressway, will feature more than 25,000 square feet of medical care offices spread out over three to four new buildings.
Officials said the new campus comes in “recognition of the large growing population in central Suffolk.”
“Manorville and the surrounding communities have had limited access to advanced medical services due to the lack of medical offices in the area,” said Sherry Patterson, chairperson of Peconic Bay Medical Center. “PBMC Health is thrilled to help fill this unmet need and provide quality healthcare close to home.”
The first new building, scheduled to open in early 2013, will include a primary/family care office, an Ob/Gyn practice, pediatrics and an urgent care center, according to the statement.
The second building is still under design and will include a center for digestive diseases, urology services and general surgery.
Officials said plans for the remaining buildings are still in development and may include different types of prevention services.
The Manorville center also got assistance from the Suffolk County Industrial Development Agency last week.
“PBMC Health is extremely excited to bring a new ambulatory campus to the residents of Manorville and the surrounding communities,” said Andrew Mitchell, the group and hospital’s president and chief executive officer.
