Message From the Chairman
I believe Catholic Health offers you a higher level of care and quality, and that is due, in part, to what I like to call the Catholic Health difference. This distinction comes from being a faith-based organization. Our team doesn’t feel that coming to work is a job but instead is a vocation. Each person within our extensive integrated health care system comes together as one, delivering you exceptional treatment and healing. They are drawn to Catholic Health, because they believe in our mission.
Under the governance of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Catholic Health continues the legacy of its founding congregations. We strive to deliver one standard of care, without regard to race, creed, ethnicity or ability to pay. Our staff administers this standard, keeping in mind that this is the level of care they would want for themselves and their families. Our collective goal is to “humbly join together to bring Christ’s healing mission and the mission of mercy of the Catholic Church expressed in Catholic health care to our communities.” We offer a wide range of services delivered by highly trained physicians, many of whom have national recognition, our talented nursing staff and dedicated support teams. Our community hospitals, ambulatory surgery and rehabilitation services span Long Island, and our system includes the DeMatteis Cardiovascular Institute, where a team of world-renowned investigators is working with non-invasive imaging technology to improve methods of diagnosing heart disease. Whether it is through New York’s only specialty designated cardiac center and nationally recognized St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center®, Good Samaritan Hospital’s Level II Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center or from one of our skilled nursing facilities all of which have earned five stars for quality measures from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, we are dedicated to providing you first-class medicine.
Ensuring the well-being of our fellow Long Islanders is our primary objective. As such, we continually reinvest in new services, offering you access to state-of-the-art equipment and enhanced facilities, making sure you have what you need when you need it and where you want it. But don’t just take my word for the caliber of care at Catholic Health. Objective outside organizations continually recognize Catholic Health's quality.

I invite you to come and experience the Catholic Health difference.
Wishing you the best of health,
Salvatore F. Sodano
Chairman, Catholic Health Board of Directors
