Peconic Bay Medical Health System, which includes Peconic Bay Medical Center, is planning to build a new medical campus 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. The Manorville campus will feature outpatient care for residents in the area.
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 PBMC. “PBMC Health is thrilled to help fill this unmet need and provide quality health care close to home.”
Construction for the campus’ first building is expected to begin in September, with plans to open in early 2013. It 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 total cost of the project hasn’t been determined yet since the campus is still being planned, said the group’s chief development officer, Demetrios Kadenas, adding that the organization will seek donors to help fund the new campus.
“Philanthropy is going to be a major component of this initiative,” he said.
The Manorville center also received 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, president and CEO of PBMC Health and Peconic Bay Medical Center.
