onstruction is well underway on Winthrop-University Hospital's new 15,000 square foot Pediatric Inpatient Center. The Center will become the new home to the many facets of Winthrop's Pediatric program, which has grown by leaps and bounds over the past several years.
Through a bold initiative and the efforts of "The Pediatric Fund for the Future" to raise $5,000,000, Winthrop will build a Center that is dedicated to meeting all the needs of its pediatric patients with compassion and superior care. With this in mind, the Pediatric Fund for the Future Task Force has been formed, under the guidance of Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of Winthrop's Department of Pediatrics, whose sole objective is to raise funds for this new Center. "We have many grateful parents, corporate leaders, and individuals from the community who recognize the importance and value of superior quality healthcare for children close to home," said Dr. Rosenfeld. "When we asked for help to build Winthrop's new inpatient center for children, the community rallied around us."
For information on how you can become involved in this initiative on behalf of our children, please call Winthrop-University Hospital's Office of Development at 516-663-3398.
