“I am looking forward to the challenge of bringing a new focus on advanced medical services to the East End,” said Cacciabaudo.

Cacciabaudo previously served as chief of cardiology at Southside Hospital, and director of nuclear cardiology and associate medical director at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. 

The new medical director is joining the Peconic Bay Medical Center as it prepares to break ground on a $60 million critical care tower that will feature a rooftop helipad and cardiac catheterization and intensive care suites.
