Fences surround one-third of the parking lot north of the main entrance to Mount Sinai South Nassau hospital, signaling the start of construction of a $90 million central utility plant, which will advance the capabilities of the hospital’s electrical system. “There was a lot of ground work to get to this point, and to get all the approvals that we needed,” said Joe Calderone, senior vice president of corporate communications and development at Mount Sinai South Nassau. “We’re putting up signs around campus to keep our neighbors informed of what’s going on,” said Dana Sanneman, executive director of public affairs at Mount Sinai South Nassau. In May, South Nassau raised nearly $660,000 at its annual golf outing, which went toward the hospital’s expansion project. At the time, Mount Sinai South Nassau President and CEO Richard Murphy thanked those who supported the hospital’s goals. “We are very grateful to the community for supporting the much-needed expansion of our Emergency Department,” he said.
