Peconic Bay Medical Center Holds Career Fair at Riverhead High School

District and Hospital Partner for Second Annual Healthcare Career Fair to Expand Student Opportunities

RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK (APRIL 2024)—Peconic Bay Medical Center (PBMC) recently partnered with the Riverhead Central School District to hold its second annual healthcare career fair at Riverhead High School. The event gave students a chance to explore a wide range of clinical and non-clinical fields within the healthcare industry and was part of PBMC’s ongoing efforts to empower the next generation of medical professionals. It also aligned with the district’s mission to introduce students to new careers and to set them on a path for success in the future.

“This collaborative effort between Peconic Bay Medical Center and Riverhead High School has been instrumental in broadening the horizons of our students,” said Riverhead Central School District Interim Superintendent Cheryl Pedisich. “Events like these empower our students to explore diverse career paths and inspire them to pursue meaningful careers that make a difference and match their passions. We are grateful to Amy Loeb and the Peconic Bay Medical Center staff for taking the time to speak with our students, and we are excited about the future as our students pursue the opportunities available to them.”

More than 600 Riverhead High School students attended the event and participated in activities aimed at introducing them to the complex world of healthcare. PBMC arranged a series of interactive booths throughout the school gymnasium that introduced different facets of work PBMC does in the community. Represented departments included nursing, radiology, dentistry, and much more.

“Peconic Bay Medical Center holds our partnership with the Riverhead Central School District in high regard as we work to inspire the next generation of aspiring medical professionals,” said PBMC executive director Amy Loeb, EdD., MBA, R.N. “It’s crucial for young minds to explore the numerous opportunities available in the healthcare sector. I personally had the opportunity to experience several different facets of the healthcare industry throughout my career both as a nurse and an administrator. Events like these give students an opportunity to see the full scope of the healthcare industry.”
