When it comes to healthcare, there is no compromising. You want the very best. The very best care team; the very best technology and treatments; the very best facilities; and, of course, the very best patient experience.
An emblem of commitment to all of those things and more, the much anticipated affiliation between Winthrop-University Hospital and NYU Langone Health became official on April 1, 2017. NYU Langone is now the corporate parent of the Hospital, creating a clinically integrated healthcare network between our two organizations. With this new affiliation also came a new name for Winthrop, which is now NYU Winthrop Hospital.
"This affiliation has paved the way for the establishment of an integrated health network on Long Island that is enhancing healthcare across the region and enabling the residents we serve to access a broad array of outstanding health services," said John Collins, President & CEO of NYU Winthrop Hospital. "We are confident NYU Winthrop Hospital will be a major force in our region's healthcare landscape, and we look forward with great optimism to this new chapter in our Hospital's storied history."
"This new relationship reflects our joint dedication to providing the highest standards of clinical care, supported by the advanced technologies and sophisticated research and teaching programs that will enhance our collective institutions," said NYU Langone dean and CEO Robert I. Grossman, MD.
As a result of this affiliation, NYU Winthrop has gained access to capital to develop a long-term master plan, characterized by growth and expansion that will benefit scores of individuals who turn to the hospital for care for generations to come. This includes an expansion to the Hospital's dedicated Emergency Department to accommodate the tremendous growth in patient volume it has experienced over the years. The expansion entails making room for additional beds and reconfiguring the department to make way for larger rooms for patients.
What's more, plans for a two-floor expansion to the Hospital's bustling New Life Center, which will add 26 new single-unit maternity rooms, as well as expand the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, are also underway.
"We're embarking on an exciting new chapter in our history that will enable us to offer more patients in the New York metropolitan area enhanced access to world-class, compassionate, and comprehensive care," said Dr. Grossman. "I'm enthusiastic about combining our talent and expertise with that of NYU Winthrop Hospital."
