  • Through the support and advocacy of the Honorable Michael A. L. Balboni, New York State Senator (second from L), Winthrop received a legislative grant of $41,000, used for the purchase of a mobile neonatal transport system. The new unit is used to transfer extremely ill infants from other hospitals to Winthrop’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where they receive expert, lifesaving care. L-R: Winthrop’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Daniel P. Walsh; Senator Michael A. L. Balboni; Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman, Department of Pediatrics; Jonathan Davis, MD, Winthrop’s Director of Neonatology and Newborn Medicine; Barbara Slone, RN, PNP, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Nurse Practitioner; and Sally Breslin, RNC, Nurse Manager, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

    Re-Opening of Expanded Pulmonary Rehabilitation Unit



    Cutting the ribbon for the grand re-opening of an enlarged Pulmonary Rehabilitation Exercise Unit are (L-R) Jonathan S. Ilowite, MD, Director, Respiratory Therapy and Pulmonary Rehabilitation; Mara Bernstein, RT, Coordinator, Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program; and Gerald Stanick, MPA, RRT, Administrative Director, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. More than 1,000 patients have “graduated” from Winthrop’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program since its opening in l988. The new, expanded Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program doubles the program’s capacity. For further information, call Ms. Bernstein at (516) 663-2579.
