Samuel Teich was born in Huntington in 1907, went to the Huntington schools, graduating from Huntington High School in 1924. He graduated from Cornell and then from Long Island College of Medicine in 1932, returned to set up practice in his home town of Huntington Station in 1933 and joined the staff of Huntington Hospital. Huntington Hospital, founded in 1915, had just opened their second building in 1933, which is today part of a much larger complex of buildings.
In 1935, Samuel married Beatrice and in the 1930’s they bought a house at 1090 New York avenue in Huntington Station. There they created a home/office complex where they raised a family of three sons and served their community’s medical needs for the better part of the 20th century..
The Society’s exhibit features a time line of health care providers from the 18th to the 20th century in the Town of Huntington, as well as the history of the formation of Huntington Hospital during the second decade of the 20th century.
