A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” Angie

June 23rd, 2022 The South Shore University Hospital Wellness Committee invited all hospital staff and members of the hospital-wide community to join in "A Day to Embrace" recently, held at the hospital's Heroes Plaza.

The event was created to build love and support for one another, at a time when current events have caused grief and sadness in communities around the country.

Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter joined with SSUH Executive Director, Donna Moravick to offer her appreciation and gratitude to the entire hospital staff.

"These past few years have seen a great deal of uncertainty, and with it a concern for what the future might hold. We stand here today in the Heroes Plaza, so aptly named, because we are not alone in this grief," said the Supervisor.

"While the last few years and recent events have brought hardship, it is by the strength of those around us: their friendship; love; comradery; and their ongoing sacrifices and support, that we find hope. Where there is heartache, there is heart. Where there is grief, there is love. And where there are challenges, there is the opportunity to try and triumph," she said.

"Through the courage and tenacity of the entire South Shore University Hospital medical team and supporting staff, who have given their all to care for the patients of this community each and every day, we see the evidence—and in sparkling relief – that the forces for good in this world more than balance even with the bad. It outweighs it. All your good works, your enduring strength and continued care is proof of this. Take pride in this fact. We do," she added.

"Let our coming together here today serve as the marker for the beginning of a needed moment of healing as we process, embrace and remember. Our Town is made strong by the diverse people who call it their home, and together with that strength, we will persevere to foster a brighter future, and to face tomorrow’s challenges, not alone, but unified in our commitment to each other," concluded Supervisor Carpenter.
