  • "The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet," once quipped William Gibson, a contemporary novelist. He may be right since we plan for the future based on our present knowledge and beliefs. Of course, as the present becomes the past, we must remember to revisit our plan, or write one.

    A will, durable power of attorney and health care proxy are among the best ways to let your family members and physicians know your personal wishes for the future. However, once created, these important documents will need periodic updating. Changes in family circumstance, legislation or charitable interests often require some modifications, which can be easily addressed.

    When updating a will or estate plan, many grateful patients and families seek information about including a thoughtful gift earmarked for Winthrop-University Hospital. In some cases, bequest language is written into the will or codicil while other individuals have already identified favored charities and only need to include Winthrop as an additional beneficiary. Donors may designate a bequest for the benefit of one or more of the Hospital's outstanding health care services, thereby leaving a legacy to continue an especially meaningful program.

    If you are updating your will and would like information about including Winthrop, check off the appropriate line on the enclosed response envelope and return it with your contact information, or call Barry Cosel-Pieper, Director of Development, at (516) 663-3398.
