Suffolk County Legislator Samuel Gonzalez, Jr. Visits HRHCare Brentwood Health Center

BRENTWOOD, NY – On Tuesday, April 23, Legislator Samuel Gonzalez, Jr. (D), elected in March to represent Suffolk County’s 9th Legislative District, visited the HRHCare Brentwood Health Center, operated by Hudson River Health Care (HRHCare). Led by HRHCare Deputy Executive Officer and CFO Jim Sinkoff, the tour gave the Legislator a chance to see the state-of-the-art facility and learn more about the high-quality primary and preventive health services that HRHCare delivers in Brentwood and at its nine other health centers throughout Suffolk County.

“I was happy to have toured the HRHCare Brentwood Health Center,” said Legislator Samuel Gonzalez. “Investing in community-based care ensures that our residents receive the best health care services. I am pleased that Suffolk County and HRHCare have continued to collaborate to preserve and enhance primary care access for our residents.”

During his visit, Legislator Gonzalez spoke about the many barriers some residents of his district face when it comes to health care access, and his strong support of the work that HRHCare does to combat these barriers to care in Brentwood and across Suffolk County. HRHCare has operated the formerly county-run Brentwood Health Center since 2015. Tuesday marked the first opportunity the Legislator had to visit the health center since his recent election.

HRHCare provides Brentwood residents with access to an array of comprehensive health care services under one roof, all of which is made possible through our partnership with Suffolk County,” said Jim Sinkoff, DEO and CFO of HRHCare. “Our thanks to Legislator Gonzalez for recognizing the importance of this relationship and working with us to keep Brentwood in good health.”

At the request of the New York State Department of Health, HRHCare began to transition the Suffolk County-run primary care centers into HRHCare health centers in 2012. Current HRHCare locations in Suffolk County include health centers in Amityville, Brentwood, Coram, Greenport, Huntington, Patchogue, Riverhead, Shirley, Wyandanch, and a mobile health center van that travels throughout the region. HRHCare currently cares for over 73,000 patients in the county.
