Emergency Care Facility Plan in the Works for East Hampton

After two years of planning, a concrete governmental step was taken last week towards the construction of a 23,830-square-foot Stony Brook Southampton Hospital emergency medical facility in East Hampton.

Currently, there are two Little League baseball fields at the future site, on the northern end of Pantigo Place. Stony Brook Medicine has agreed to finance the relocation of those fields.

“As many of you know, Southampton Hospital signed a lease with the town for the Pantigo Place ball fields for a future site for an emergency care center,” Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc said during the East Hampton Town Board’s July 21 meeting, where the town board declared lead agency in the environmental review process, part of the overall approval process. The lease runs 50 years.
