Three representatives from North Shore-LIJ Southside Hospital in Bay Shore visited East Islip High School’s new Medical and Health Technology Career Academy on Oct. 12: Kerri Fontaine, the hospital’s manager of marketing and education; Marge Miller, the manager of human resources; and Vincent Cunningham, Southside’s community relations coordinator.
“The purpose of our visit was to discuss more opportunities that benefit the Career Academies and possibly the East Islip School District as a whole,” explained Fontaine. “The partnership between our hospital and East Islip High School is so exciting and instrumental in serving the needs of our community. North Shore-LIJ Southside Hospital is always striving to improve the health and quality of life for the community around us by providing world-class service and patient-centered care. Our physicians are vested in Suffolk County and are eager to be part of any opportunities that further benefit the education or wellness of the local community.”
