Community Outreach for Long Islanders

As a not-for-profit, mission-based organization, Catholic Health is continuing the work of our women religious who founded hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and other Long Island agencies reaching back more than a century. We offer blood drives, free wellness seminars, support groups and other community health-related events and programs year-round.

To further help the medically underserved in Nassau and Suffolk counties, Catholic Health established its Healthy Sundays outreach network and Bishop McHugh Health Centers to deliver health screenings, education, vaccinations and other services to those without access to primary care. 

Father Kevin Creagh

 “Living our mission means… passionately caring—for our patients, their loved ones,  and each other. There’s a spirit at work here—we’re a community that reflexively  exudes compassion and mercy. It inspires me every day!”

-Fr. Kevin Creagh, Catholic  Health Senior Vice President, Mission Integration
