Robert Chaloner is stepping down as chief administrative officer of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital after 16 years of service.
Mr. Chaloner joined Southampton Hospital in 2006. In a statement issued Wednesday, he is said to have been instrumental in establishing Stony Brook Medicine as a trusted partner and provider of high-quality health care on the East End following the Stony Brook and Southampton merger in 2017.
He was influential in the construction of the Phillips Family Cancer Center, part of the Stony Brook University Cancer Center, which opened in Southampton in 2019. More recently, Mr. Chaloner was a leader in the planning and design of the soon-to-be-constructed Stony Brook Medicine East Hampton Satellite Emergency facility.
He has served the Stony Brook Southampton community throughout his tenure, the hospital noted, building connections with community leaders, seasonal and full-time residents, and patrons, while leading a team of professionals "focused on providing quality compassionate care to patients and visitors."
Mr. Chaloner will continue as chief administrative officer during a search for a leader for Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. He plans to continue engagement with the community, supporting efforts to build a new hospital facility on the Stony Brook Southampton campus.
