Southampton Hospital has been in existence since 1909. The evening’s dinner benefited the emergency room that is in much need of funding. Southampton Hospital, is a 168-bed hospital, in Southampton, New York, and is the only hospital in the Hamptons. Did you know that First Lady of the United States Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill were born at the hospital, also artist, Ian Hornak died at the facility? It is a member of the Stony Brook University Medical Center. The hospital admits more than 6,000 patient/year and has about 26,000 emergency room visits (with half being during the summer season.) If the walls of Southampton Hospital could talk what a tale they would tell.
