Southampton Hospital, centrally located in the Village of Southampton, New York, is a 125-bed hospital accredited by the Joint Commission. An affiliate of the Stony Brook Medicine, Southampton Hospital is a New York State-designated Stroke Center. The hospital admits more than 6,000 patients annually and has about 25,000 emergency room visits each year (about 50% during the summer season). The Hospital’s multidisciplinary approach to healthcare provides access to a wide variety of medical specialties for a full range of clinical services.


In 1909, the Southampton Hospital Association bought the Hervey J. Topping house on the corner of Lewis Street and Meeting House Lane and planned to build the hospital on an adjoining lot. In 1911, Samuel Parrish donated 2.5 acres (1.0 ha) on Old Town Road, stretching from Meeting House Lane to Herrick Road, where the present hospital opened in 1913 and still stands today. Southampton Hospital is the healthcare hub for an ethnically and financially diverse population of year-round residents, second homeowners and visitors. The original brick building is scarcely recognizable for all its additions and improvements during its first century, but the community spirit responsible for its existence still thrives in the care that the Hospital offers today.


Southampton Hospital engaged the Stony Brook Medicine as a partner in 2012 to provide a higher level of care for residents and visitors to the East End. The alignment with Stony Brook will afford Southampton Hospital the opportunity to build anew state-of-the-art hospital on the campus of Southampton College, also part of Stony Brook. Southampton Hospital’s Residency Program will benefit from the collaboration, strengthening the hospital’s ability to fully staff its community-based health care satellite centers throughout the North and South Forks of Long Island.

Medical Residency Program[edit]

The Residency Program in Social Osteopathic Medicine (RP-SOM) at Southampton Hospital was developed to train osteopathic physicians for placement in the community setting. The objective of this Residency is to provide a comprehensive and longitudinal experience that will afford new physicians exposure to the various required disciplines. This program emphasizes inpatient and outpatient primary care medicine and the importance of the physician’s role not only as a healthcare provider but also as a patient advocate, educator, and as an agent of change. The new hospital planned to be located at Southampton College will allow for expansion of the program.

Associated Charities[edit]

The Coalition for Women's Cancers provides volunteer services to women in the Eastern End of Long Island, New York, from Riverhead to Montauk, who have been affected by breast, ovarian and uterine cancers. The organization focuses on early detection and empowerment to bring about better health care and an improved quality of life. They provide educational and therapeutic programs, transportation assistance, support groups and many, many more services. The Coalition engages in various fund raising activities. In 2014 the Coalition entered a partnership with the pop-up street artist known as The Tanster. Her public art installations include donation instructions for people to give contributions to the Coalition and support their good works. The website for donations is located here.
