In April of 2014, Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport, New York, unveiled plans for a $4.5 million renovation and expansion of its operating theater. The hospital, which serves residents of the North Fork and Shelter Island community, also took the opportunity to thank donors to the project, who included Cynthia and Tom Rosicki of Plainview mortgage banking-focused law firm Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates, PC. Of the approximately $2.25 million contributed to the hospital’s funding efforts by mid-April, the firm had made the leading contribution of $250,000. Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates has lent its support to numerous other charitable endeavors in the Long Island region and beyond.
The ELIH facility will complete its remodeling over four phases, the first of which will commence in the summer of 2014. In this initial phase, one of the hospital’s three existing operating rooms will undergo a complete renovation to provide it with a new ceiling reinforced with steel beams. This construction will permit surgeons to access medical equipment suspended from booms overhead, a significant improvement on the current design of having surgical instruments wheeled in on standing carts. This first phase will additionally configure the space to support wireless technology. The remodeling plan will allow the surgery department to continue serving patients while renovation work continues.
