Northwell Health’s Peconic Bay Medical Center received approval to establish two laboratory cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology suites, and construct a rooftop helipad. The new cath labs will form the centerpiece of a comprehensive Cardiac Care Center, which will be named the Kanas Regional Heart Center, housed in Peconic Bay Medical Center’s new $60 million Critical Care Tower.

In conjunction with the New York State approval, the Town of Riverhead also recently approved a zoning change and site plan for what will again be one of the largest expansions in the history of the hospital.
