The acquisition of South Shore Surgery Center is a component of Northwell’s broader strategy to develop enhanced ambulatory surgical services for the communities it serves.
The free-standing, multi-specialty center --which is located at 53 Brentwood Road, Suite F -- includes three operating rooms, two procedure rooms, six pre-operation stations and 13 post-operation spots. The South Shore Surgery Center has specialists in the areas of general surgery, gynecology, orthopedics, pain, podiatry, urology and ear, nose and throat care.
Key physician partners of the center include Joseph Bonafede, MD; Todd Campbell, MD; Eric Bergson, MD; Robert Gargano, MD; Thomas O’Donnell, MD; Edward Cussatti, MD; Sanford Ratzan, MD; Charles Ruotolo, MD; Steven Simonsen, MD; James Marzec, MD; Luis Fandos, MD; Craig Shalmi, MD; and Steven Litman, MD.
“Partnership with these talented physicians will allow Northwell Health to further extend our high-quality care in Suffolk County,” said Nicholas Sgaglione, MD, senior vice president and executive director of the Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute.
Jay Enden, MD, medical director of Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, noted, “Our plan is to work closely with these physicians partners to coordinate activities between the center and Southside Hospital. By doing so, we will make Southside more efficient and ensure patients will have a great choice.”
