Southampton Hospital David E. Rogers, MD Center Receives Award and Announces New Services

Southampton, NY—In recognition of its service to those afflicted by HIV/AIDS, Southampton Hospital’s David E. Rogers, MD Center has received the Peter M. Fox Excellence in AAHIVM Credentialing Award from the American Academy of HIV Medicine. The award is presented annually to those HIV practices where all eligible practitioners currently hold an American Academy of HIV Medicine AAHIVS, AAHIVE or AAHIVP credential. The award was created in memory of Peter M. Fox whose leadership and dedication resulted in the quality and growth of this important HIV credentialing program at the American Academy of HIV Medicine.

Southampton Hospital President and CEO, Robert Chaloner comments, “Since its founding over 20 years ago, the Center has distinguished itself by offering state-of-the-art medical care and emotional support to patients and their families. The East End communities we serve are fortunate to have the David E. Rogers, MD Center and we are very proud of the exceptional and compassionate care that our staff at the Center delivers each day.”

The Center has announced the addition of two new services—Hepatitis C Treatment for HIV/HCV Co-infected Patients who are living with both HIV and Hepatitis C will be able to be treated for both diseases at one convenient location, and Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Care PrEP will enable people who do not have HIV but are at substantial risk to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. As always, free and confidential HIV testing is available by appointment, with results in 20 minutes. Appointments and information at (631) 287-5990.
