Operating Room Expansion and Renovation:

With surgical operating suite technology advancing rapidly, your local hospital needs to be well-equipped where it really matters. When it comes to the latest technology in operating rooms, ELIH plans to go bigger and better. The skills of the highly specialized surgeons of today call for advances and innovations that were unheard of just a few years ago. Laser-assisted surgery, touch screen displays and fiber optic cameras will be the new standard.

Operation Renew is a major capital campaign to remodel, rebuild and expand Eastern Long Island Hospital’s current complement of operating room suites. With a plan to “renovate in place” ELIH will remain fully functional at all times. We have achieved more than 70% of our target of $5.2 million and plan to break ground in 2017. You can be a champion of this transformational project. Enhancements that are vital to the outcome of each surgery for every patient are also crucial for the sustainability of surgical care on the East End of Long Island. Help ELIH build on its capacity to provide more services for more patients, for you, your neighbors and your family.

Your support will increase our surgical capabilities now and for the future. With your help Eastern Long Island Hospital can:

  • Provide state-of –the-art surgical equipment for sub-specialists in orthopedics, spine and neurosurgery, plastic, vascular, colorectal and general surgery.
  • Meet the growing demand of surgeries performed locally.
  • Transform the OR of today to provide life changing surgeries for the patients of tomorrow.

Breast Health Campaign:

Since 1905, ELIH has blended the progressive philosophy, sophistication and innovation of a respected community Hospital with a personal approach to patient care, and a time honored commitment to the North Fork and Shelter Island. Nowhere is this more evident than in our breast health imaging department.

Eastern Long Island Hospital is responding to patient concerns about breast health by expanding its health and wellness services to include 3 D mammography. Also called Digital Tomosynthesis, this new state-of-the-art imaging system sets new screening standards in the fight against breast cancer.

3D/Breast Tomosynthesis Mammography is better for both dense and non-dense breasts, and reduces the number of false positives. Compared to traditional mammography, 3 D mammography captures multiple images of the entire breast at different angles allowing the radiologist to see so much more. With this new advanced technology, follow-up tests and biopsies are greatly diminished, relieving patient anxiety.

Help us build a Breast Health Center of Excellence for the residents of the North Fork and Shelter Island. From screening to diagnosis, ELIH is accredited by the American College of Radiology for Mammography, Ultrasound and MRI.

When you give your support to this initiative, you help your community hospital provide:

  • State-of-the art diagnostic breast technology
  • Routine screenings for more residents
  • Stereotactic biopsy equipment
  • Comprehensive breast health program
