St. Catherine of Siena Hospital | Legislator Rob Trotta's Honoree
St. Catherine of Siena Hospital named after Saint Catherine Benincasa of Siena, Italy, a nurse, mediator and spiritual leader during the 4th century. It is a member of Catholic Health, and is a 296-bed, not-for-profit community hospital that has served the residents of Smithtown for more than 50 years.
Committed to providing the highest quality of care, St. Catherine offers multidisciplinary experts in numerous specialties including bariatric surgery, behavioral health, cardiovascular care, diagnostic imaging, dialysis, emergency medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, robotic surgery, sleep medicine, stroke, woman child care, women’s health, wound care, and much more.
Over the years, St. Catherine has earned recognition and awards from a number of organizations for its hospital safety, stroke care, Type 2 diabetes treatment, and women’s health. In addition, St. Catherine is the first “Baby-Friendly” designated hospital in Suffolk County. Its staff and lactation consultant focus on a family-centered model of care. They have received an A-rating for patient satisfaction.
St. Catherine offers a full range of outpatient diagnostic imaging services at its Ambulatory Care Center in Commack. Services include breast biopsy, bone density scan, CT, MRI, mammography, 3D digital breast tomosynthesis mammography, ultrasound and X-ray.
As the legislator representing St. Catherine, I have had the opportunity to know its staff, nurses and doctors, as well as experiencing its high level of care on a personal level as a patient , as well as for bringing my father to the ER on a number of occasions. Staff have also participated in my Senior Health Fair with blood pressure screenings and providing important health resources. St. Catherine is a tremendous asset to the Smithtown community as they sponsor important events such as its annual Community Health Fair at the hospital, blood drives, blood pressure checks at senior centers and complexes, clothing and food collections, flu vaccines and recognition ceremonies for EMS workers and the hospital’s staff.
