Catholic Health Services plans to invest more than $525 million to expand Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip, N.Y. According to an article in Newsday, a 300,000-square-foot, six-story expansion would be on the grounds of the hospital on Montauk Highway.

Reporter David Reich-Hale writes: “CHS said it plans to add a 16-operating room surgical suite and a 36-bed, private-room inpatient floor. It would also relocate the emergency department. The new addition would be connected to the existing hospital, according to the document, which was filed the last week of December. The filing is under review, according to the health department’s website.”

The filing also reportedly stated that the project would take 30 months without disruption of the existing functions of the inpatient facility or emergency department. Good Samaritan added that any construction would be handled in compliance with local and state officials.
