Mineola, NY – Following ten successful years at Winthrop-University Hospital and an illustrious 35-year career in healthcare, Daniel P. Walsh, Winthrop’s President and Chief Executive Officer, announced today his plans to retire effective June 30, 2009.

“After 35 years in the healthcare profession, I recognize that all good things must eventually end, so that we may fully embrace and enjoy that time in our life that we have worked so hard for,” said Mr. Walsh in addressing the Winthrop team. “I have been rewarded in more ways than you can imagine through the opportunities that I have had to work with a truly magnificent group of people… and there has never been a question in my mind that the Winthrop team is unmatched and very special.”

Mr. Walsh has been with Winthrop since January 1999. Under Mr. Walsh’s leadership, Winthrop has maintained a warm and caring atmosphere while developing into a nationally-recognized major regional healthcare provider.

Among his many accomplishments at Winthrop, the Hospital’s Emergency Department underwent a major expansion and renovation, which included the addition of a new Fast Track Unit, the dedicated Phyllis and Nathan J. Mistretta Chest Pain Unit, a separate Pediatric Emergency Room, and an expanded ambulance bay. The Hospital then built the first and only Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on Long Island, a new Heart Surgery Center, and the comprehensive Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center. Further expanding cardiac services at Winthrop, Mr. Walsh spearheaded the creation of the John D. Miller Interventional Cardiology Pavilion, which includes four sophisticated cardiac catheterization laboratories and a new, expanded Electrophysiology Center
