North Fork Radiology joining Northwell Health

North Fork Radiology in Riverhead is joining Northwell Health.

The radiology center, located at 1333 Roanoke Avenue across from Peconic Bay Medical Center, is changing its name to Northwell Health Imaging at North Fork.

Northwell Health has acquired the 18,000-square-foot building that houses the North Fork Radiology imaging center and several other tenants, Northwell Health said in a press release Friday afternoon.

Four of North Fork Radiology’s board-certified radiologists are joining the Northwell Health medical staff: Bradley Gluck, David Kirshy, Jack Morgani, and Salvatore Parrinello. Gluck has been appointed chief of radiology services at Peconic Bay Medical Center.

Established in 1957, North Fork Radiology provides a full range of diagnostic and screening services, including MRI, ultrasound, PET/CT, breast imaging services, nuclear medicine, digital x-ray, CT and bone densitometry.

“We are tremendously excited to build upon the strong clinical foundation North Fork Radiology has established since it first opened in 1957,” said Dr. Jesse Chusid, senior vice president of imaging services at Northwell Health.

“Northwell Health Imaging at North Fork is one more step in our East End strategy and underscores our commitment to providing world class services,” said Kevin Beiner, executive director of Northwell Health’s eastern region, which includes Peconic Bay Medical Center as well as Glen Cove, Syosset, Plainview, South Oaks, Huntington, Southside and Mather hospitals.

Northwell Health has 19 ambulatory imaging centers across Long Island, New York City and Westchester. These locations have the largest group of sub-specialized radiologists in New York, Northwell Health said.

Northwell’s network of ambulatory imaging locations was the first radiology practice in New York State to be designated as a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology for achieving the highest levels of imaging quality, safety and care.
