BAY SHORE, NY —
Southside Hospital has a new emergency medicine chair: Sanjey Gupta, MD.
Dr. Gupta is an associate professor of emergency medicine at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and a voting member of the Board of Directors for the New York Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He was previously the vice chair of emergency medicine at Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Medical Center in New Hyde Park. Dr. Gupta's career at Northwell Health began as a resident at North Shore University Hospital. In 2014, he became chair of emergency medicine at LIJ Valley Stream.
"Dr. Gupta has been an incredible asset in each of the Northwell Health roles he has held and he will help Southside Hospital to continue to develop into a prominent trauma and academic hub in Suffolk County," said John D'Angelo, MD, executive director of the emergency medicine service line at Northwell Health.
Southside Hospital has developed into a premier facility for emergency care, becoming the first hospital on Long Island and in New York State to become a verified Level II American College of Surgeons trauma center. The hospital also expanded and modernized its Bohlsen Family Emergency Department in 2016.
"Southside Hospital has grown and changed so much in the last decade and Dr. Gupta's leadership will be a critical part of our evolution as we move forward," said Donna Moravick, NP, the hospital's executive director.
