Winthrop Named �Champion for Clean Air�

3-2In recognition of its commitment to improving air quality in the New York Metro area, Winthrop-University Hospital has been named a �Champion for Clean Air� by the New York State Department of Transportation�s Clean Air NY initiative.

Clean Air NY is a collaborative initiative that encourages organizations and individuals to take actions to improve air quality and combat ozone pollution � a threat that greatly increases risk of respiratory disease.

To reduce the number of cars on the road and reduce air pollution, Winthrop has taken several important steps including the provision of informational conferences for employees in collaboration with Long Island Transportation Management (LITM); establishment of a guaranteed ride home program through the LITM, which matches employees for carpooling; and creation of a pre-tax transit benefit program for employees through Transit Center, which enables employees to save money by paying for public transportation with pre-tax dollars.

�Winthrop employs more than 5,000 full-time and part-time men and women,� said George P. Rainer, Vice President, Human Resources at Winthrop, �and we are committed to supporting them in their transportation needs while also helping to improve the environment.�
