On Nov. 14, Northwell Health announced the opening of a new building in Bay Shore for South Shore University Hospital’s (SSUH) neurosciences team. The $1.4 million center is 4,600 square feet with eight exam rooms and located at 1963 Union Boulevard, directly across the street from the hospital. The practice moved from 270 East Main Street in Bay Shore.
“Northwell is extremely excited to open this beautiful building,” said Daniel Sciubba, MD, senior vice president, neurosurgery, Northwell Health, and acting chair of neurosurgery at SSUH. “This location is another demonstration of Northwell’s commitment to specialized care within the communities we serve.”
Neurosurgery at Bay Shore includes a team of renowned physicians who treat a wide variety of both common disorders and rare diseases, including spinal conditions, brain tumors, and cerebrovascular conditions such as brain aneurysms, stroke and mini stroke (TIA), carotid stenosis, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and traumatic brain injury.
Doctors moving to the new facility include:
“This new ambulatory site in Bay Shore allows Northwell Health to expand neurosurgery close to the South Shore University Hospital campus,” said Joseph Baglio, senior vice president of Northwell’s Eastern region ambulatory services. “The facility is a state-of-the-art center which provides accessibility and convenience to our patients in the Eastern region community.”
The new center builds upon investments made to bolster SSUH services. In February 2022, SSUH opened the Linda and John Bohlsen Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit (ICU), a 6,300-square-foot space dedicated to treating the most critically ill neurology patients. The ICU offers 24/7 treatment of neurosurgical and critically ill neurology patients and will be staffed by neuro intensive care attending physicians and advanced care providers who are specially trained to support neuroscience patients.
Additionally, in the last year, SSUH’s neurosciences team has earned two significant certifications. The first is the Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification, the highest level of stroke certification available by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, and the second is the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal for Advanced Certification in Spine Surgery in collaboration with the Orthopedic surgery team.
SSUH is the only hospital in Suffolk County to earn the spine surgery certification.
