On Saturday, August 4, 2018, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s 60th Annual Summer Party “Diamond Jubilee” attracted 700 guests and raised approximately $1.5-million to benefit the Jenny & John Paulson Emergency Department. Stony Brook Southampton Hospital is recognized by the NYS Department of Health as a provisional Level III adult trauma center, the first one on Long Island’s East End. This designation enables the Hospital to provide care to the most critically injured patients. During the summer season when the regional population swells, it is even more critically important that trauma care be accessible close by.
