St. Catherine & St. Charles Center for Health & Wellness Officially Open for Business in Commack
On Thursday, October, 26, 2017, two entities of Catholic Health Services of Long Island (CHS)—St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown and St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, gathered in Commack to celebrate the opening of a joint collaboration—The St. Catherine and St. Charles Center for Health and Wellness.
The new, 40,000, square-foot facility, located at 500 Commack Road, offers multispecialty physicians and services, all under one roof, in Commack. The facility is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and is the perfect setting for primary care, vascular services, colorectal services, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation and orthopedic needs. Staffed by the most experienced board-certified doctors and practitioners, the center combines St. Catherine's excellence in imaging with the top orthopedic practice on Long Island: St. Charles Orthopedics.
St. Catherine and St. Charles received a tremendous amount of support at the ribbon cutting, including New York State Senator John J. Flanagan, Smithtown Town Clerk Vincent Puleo, Smithtown Councilman Edward Wehrheim, Suffolk County Comptroller John J. Kennedy, Smithtown Chamber Executive Director Barbara Franco, Kings Park Chamber Executive Director Diane Motherway, along with dozens of physicians, health professionals and community leaders. Father Corneille Boyeye performed the official blessing and Suffolk County Comptroller John J. Kennedy presented an official proclamation to St. Catherine’s Executive Vice President Paul J. Rowland and Catholic Health Services Executive Vice President and System Chief Medical Officer Patrick M. O’Shaughnessy, DO.
During the ribbon cutting special recognition was given to the Lostritto Family for supporting the purchase of diagnostic imaging equipment. “The family offered to pay for the very unique MRI Care Suite, which reduces anxiety for patients—in memory of their mother Angela Lucy Lostritto—on behalf of St. Catherine I would like to thank you for the very generous donation,” said Mr. Rowland.
