  • In spite of heavy summer rain, more than 50 Friends and Benefactors of Winthrop-University Hospital came out for the annual reception in their honor. Beginning with a cocktail hour that featured fine food and good company, the event included welcoming remarks from Winthrop President and CEO Daniel P. Walsh and Chairman of the Board Charles M. Strain.

    As guests settled in, two prominent Winthrop physicians took center stage, giving their supporters an insider’s view of cardiac services at Winthrop.

    In keeping with the theme of the evening, “Your Heart is in Good Hands,” Scott L. Schubach, MD, Chairman of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, discussed the latest techniques in open heart surgery, even showing impressive video of sophisticated surgical techniques.

    Following Dr. Schubach’s talk, Kevin P. Marzo, MD, Chief of the Division of Cardiology, kept the audience engaged with his heart-healthy remarks about diet, exercise and lifestyle as they relate to heart health, as well as the latest techniques in Interventional Cardiology.

    Dr. Marzo and Dr. Schubach are renowned in their fields, each having achieved the rare and prestigious double-asterisk (**) ranking from the New York State Department of Health in its latest reports on “Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI) in New York State” and “Adult Cardiac Surgery in New York State.” The (**) ranking indicates outcomes significantly better than the statewide average. In fact, both physicians have the lowest risk-adjusted mortality rate for their respective procedures on Long Island.

    The Friends and Benefactors Reception provides a welcome opportunity for the Hospital to thank and honor the donors who make it possible for Winthrop to continue delivering the high-quality compassionate care that Winthrop is known for.
