Northwell: New Shirley medical center will offer a bevy of medical specialties


A new medical facility offering family medicine, urgent care and an array of medical specialties is coming to Shirley this spring, Northwell Health announced this week.

Northwell’s Peconic Bay Medical Center (PBMC) will operate the medical campus located at 855 Montauk Highway. The center will feature five medical specialties: orthopedics, gastroenterology, cardiology, vascular surgery and urology.

“Northwell Health’s mission is to improve the health of the communities it serves and is committed to providing the highest quality clinical care, and this new facility is the epitome of that mission in action,” PBMC Executive Director Amy E. Loeb said. “The people of Shirley and the surrounding communities deserve to have access to high quality treatment and medical services they need, where they live, and we are excited for this beautiful healthcare facility to come to fruition.”

The expansion into Shirley complements the Riverhead hospital’s existing ambulatory care facility in Center Moriches. Officials said it’s part of PBMC’s ongoing initiative throughout Suffolk County to aid underserved communities that have only remote access to specialty and primary medical care.

The Center Moriches location offers family medicine and primary care, but will soon tack on general surgery and colorectal surgery providers. 

The Shirley facility _ which will share parking lot with Applebee’s — will be Northwell’s 22nd ambulatory location across 16 hamlets in Eastern Suffolk County. PBMC also operates Central Suffolk County locations in Manorville and Shoreham. 

“This new facility will bring much-needed convenience to the Shirley community when it comes to primary and specialty medical care,” said Steve Bello, senior vice president and executive director of Northwell Health’s Eastern Region. “The Peconic Bay Medical Center has been part of the fabric of the Eastern Suffolk County community for decades, and we are proud of this project and the benefit we can help provide residents.

“Time and health are our most precious commodities, and our goal for this facility is to enhance both for those living in the surrounding areas,” Bello added.
