  • The Guardian Society was established to honor those who have graciously included Winthrop-University Hospital in their estate plans.

    Guardian Society members are recognized for their support through planned gifts that perpetuate the Hospital's tradition of superior patient care and state-of-the-art environment. Most members choose to include Winthrop in their Wills while others select planned gifts tailored to individual circumstances such as a charitable remainder trust or life insurance.

    Winthrop recognizes general testamentary gifts from grateful Guardian Society members, as well as gifts from individuals, who designate support for specific healthcare services. There also are opportunities to fund the Chaplaincy Program Endowment, which will ensure the continuation of Pastoral Care Services that address the spiritual needs of patients or help them and their families cope with end-of-life issues.

    Making a planned gift as a member of the Guardian Society is a way of planning for Winthrop's future along with your own.

    We would be pleased to share planned giving information and opportunities with you or your financial advisor. For more information, contact Barry Cosel-Pieper, Director of Development, at (516) 663-3398 or email
