  • It is with great sadness that Winthrop announces the passing of Mr. S. Steven Bonadonna on May 6 at the age of 77. Mr. Bonadonna had a long history with the Hospital and was at the helm of Nassau Hospital when it became known as Winthrop-University Hospital in 1985.

    During the 1950s, Mr. Bonadonna worked in a number of administrative positions at the Brooklyn V.A. Hospital and Memorial Center for Cancer and Allied Diseases. In the late 1950s he worked at Nassau Hospital as an assistant administrator, leaving to become a senior administrator at the now-closed Hempstead General Hospital. He then worked for two years at St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan.

    Mr. Bonadonna rejoined Nassau Hospital in 1968 as a senior administrator before becoming executive vice president and chief executive officer in 1972. He served in this capacity until his retirement in 1987.

    A graduate of Fordham University, Mr. Bonadonna received a master's degree from Columbia University. After serving on active duty in the Air Force Medical Service Corp. in the early 1950s, he continued as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve.

    For many years Mr. Bonadonna and his wife lived in Garden City where they raised their four children before relocating to Charleston, North Carolina.
