WINTHROP-UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL’S AUXILIARY RECEIVES 2008 AUXILIARY ADVOCACY RECOGNITION AWARD FROM HEALTHCARE ASSOCIATION OF NEW YORK STATE (HANYS)
Mineola, NY - Winthrop-University Hospital’s Auxiliary has once again earned the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) Auxiliary Advocacy Recognition award. This prestigious annual recognition, which the Winthrop Auxiliary has earned for the 16th consecutive time, identifies auxiliaries from across New York State that have excelled in areas of community service and local advocacy programs throughout the year.
“The Auxiliary of Winthrop-University Hospital is very pleased to be recognized by the Healthcare Association of New York State for their commitment in support of Winthrop,” said Veronica Renken, President of the Auxiliary and member of Winthrop-University Hospital’s Board of Directors.
Established in 1924, Winthrop-University Hospital’s Auxiliary has a long-standing history of supporting both the Hospital and the community through various fundraising and advocacy efforts. The Auxiliary raises support and funds for the Hospital through assorted community-based activities and the Hospital’s Gift Shop. The Auxiliary is proud of the accomplishments of the Twigs and Wings of Winthrop who have made significant contributions to numerous projects and initiatives at Winthrop. Their ongoing support is vital to Winthrop’s continued success in its mission to provide “Care without compromise.”
“It takes a very special person to selflessly devote their time to caring for others. All of Winthrop’s volunteers – whether they are speaking with patients, welcoming them to the hospital or helping out in the offices – are integral members of the hospital team,” said Jean Zebroski, Director, Patient Relations & Volunteer Services at Winthrop-University Hospital.
Founded in 1896, Winthrop-University Hospital was Long Island’s first voluntary not-for-profit Hospital. For more information on Winthrop’s Auxiliary and Volunteer Program, please call the Volunteer office at (516) 663-2391.# # #
