A Tradition of Giving: Local Family Gives back to Emergency Department, Once Again

Thanks to an unprecedented gift from one Garden City family, NYU Winthrop Hospital's emergency entrance now has a new name – The Phyllis and Nathan J. Mistretta East Campus Emergency Entrance. A beautiful new sign over the emergency entrance to the Hospital, as well as a special plaque in the Main Entryway, will now greet the tens of thousands of patients and visitors who come to the Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) each year.

Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop Hospital; Garden City residents Nathan J. and Phyllis Mistretta; Barry Rosenthal, MD, MPH, Chairman of Emergency Medicine at NYU Winthrop Hospital; and Lynn Drucker, Assistant Vice President, Development at NYU Winthrop Hospital.

"We are deeply appreciative of the Mistretta family's continued support of our great institution," said John Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop Hospital. "The demands on our Emergency Department continue to increase, and the Mistretta's commitment to making sure our patients have the very best facilities and resources have played a vital part in our success."

Volume in the ED at NYU Winthrop has grown steadily over the years, with more and more patients turning to the Hospital for top-notch, emergency medical care. Under the leadership of Barry Rosenthal, MD, MPH, Chairman of Emergency Medicine at NYU Winthrop Hospital, an initiative began last spring to provide care to patients before a bed or chair was available inside the ED. The initiative, which began with Dr. Rosenthal as the Waiting Room physician, accompanied by ED nurses Rousselande Jean Charles and Michele Ahlers, has since become standard practice in the ED.

"With a limited amount of space in the department, we wanted to do something to meet the demands of our increasing volume, so we brought the physicians, PAs and NPs to patients in the waiting room, effectively expanding the size of our department," said Dr. Rosenthal.

"It is here that we can begin evaluating patients, order appropriate studies, administer medications, and obtain consults. Some patients are actually treated and released from the waiting room."
