Hospital Celebrates the Dedication of the Stanley S. Zielony Neurosciences Wing

“If Stanley Zielony were here today, I know that he would be very pleased,” said Robert Shenkman, long-time friend and one of the executors of Mr. Zielony’s estate during a recent ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the dedication of the Stanley S. Zielony Neurosciences Wing at NYU Winthrop Hospital.

Present at the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the dedication of the Stanley S. Zielony Neurosciences Wing at NYU Winthrop Hospital are (l.-r.) E. Ramone Segree, EdD, Vice President of Development, NYU Winthrop; Charles M. Strain, Chairman of the Board of Directors, NYU Winthrop; Robert Shenkman, Attorney at Law; John F. Collins, President & CEO of NYU Winthrop; Shepard T. Poole, Member of the Board of Directors; and Ajay Misra, MD, Chairman of Neurosciences at NYU Winthrop.

A former grateful patient of the Hospital who experienced great success in the publishing industry and, in turn, devoted himself to the cause of philanthropy, Mr. Zielony wanted to make sure that his legacy of supporting and enhancing some of the nation’s leading healthcare institutions would have a lasting impact, long after his lifetime. Several years ago, he recognized a need at NYU Winthrop and made the decision to name the Hospital in his estate.

Though Mr. Zielony passed away in 2012, he continues to help NYU Winthrop Hospital carry on a great tradition of providing superior patient care today. As a result of his generosity, a $1,000,000 gift was made to upgrade and completely renovate the Hospital’s Neurology Unit. While various enhancements – spanning from new corridor doors, flooring, smart lighting technology, paint and decor to a completely renovated nursing station equipped with the latest IT equipment and furniture – impact the physical space, Mr. Zielony’s magnanimous gift has touched patients’ lives as well.

“In this Hospital’s nearly 120-year history, Mr. Zielony’s gift is among one of the most significant gifts that we have ever received,” said Charles M. Strain, Chairman of the Board of Directors at NYU Winthrop Hospital. “NYU Winthrop prides itself on being ahead of the curve in the use of technology to improve patient care, and Mr. Zielony’s gift will help us to continue to provide the highest quality of care on Long Island.”

Colleagues and friends of the late Stanley S. Zielony tour the Neuroscience Unit at NYU Winthrop Hospital, where Mr. Zielony’s gift helped make several enhancements for patients and staff.

“The Department of Neurosciences strives to be the very best, state-of-the-art program in the region,” added Ajay Misra, MD, Chairman of Neurosciences at NYU Winthrop, during the reception. “We are grateful to Mr. Zielony and his family for all of the enhancements his generosity has provided to upgrade our unit and I want them to know, that in a special way, his gift has already touched the lives of so many of our patients.”

“Mr. Zielony’s life and benevolence epitomized the meaning of philanthropy or love of humankind,” said E. Ramone Segree EdD, Vice President of Development at NYU Winthrop Hospital. “He has done much for many including NYU Winthrop, where his meaningful and impactful legacy will continue.”
