For more than 85 years, South Nassau Communities Hospital has set the gold standard for emergency care on Long Island. To continue delivering the quality of care you’ve come to expect, we need to expand our Emergency Department — and we need your help to do it.
The current Emergency Department was designed to handle 35,000 visits. In 2013, it saw 65,000 visits — almost twice the original number. That figure is expected to grow to 70,000 annual visits, and the Emergency Department must grow with it to meet this increased demand.
The total cost of the expansion is $60 million, and our goal is to raise $10 million through donations.

In the video, you’ll hear from Gary, a former patient. A heart attack survivor, Gary has a new lease on life, thanks to the medical staff at South Nassau’s Emergency Department. He’s just one example of the thousands of success stories that leave our Emergency Department’s doors.
