Free Public Health Screenings
A number of free screenings hosted by the Hospital have proven to save lives.
Stony Brook Southampton Hospital has been dedicated to serving East End residents for the last 107 years, and the health of its communities continues to be a priority. A number of free screenings hosted by the Hospital have proven to save lives.
At the start of each flu season, a free flu clinic provides preventive care to everyone who would like to avoid catching the flu which can be deadly, as it was in the most recent flu season.
- Oral cancer, when caught in time, is treatable, and the Hospital partners with local dentists to provide a free annual oral cancer screening.
- Each June, the Hospital’s David E. Rogers MD Center provides a free HIV test, diagnosing those who are HIV/AIDS-positive. The Center’s medical team of credentialed specialists provides comprehensive care and support for those who are diagnosed.
- Life-threatening vascular diseases—conditions that affect the arteries and veins that carry blood throughout the body—often occur “silently” without any symptoms. The Hospital teams up with cardiovascular physicians at Stony Brook Medicine to provide free vascular screenings on the East End. Three simple tests in less than 30 minutes can be life-saving.
