Grateful Patient Gives Back

Winthrop-University Hospital receives countless letters from grateful patients each year. Some even come back to the Hospital after their recovery to thank those whose care made a lasting impression on them. After being treated at Winthrop on three separate occasions over the course of 10 years, S. Michael Apollo felt it was important to do just that.

Mr. Apollo, who attributes his longevity to the outstanding care he received at Winthrop, wanted to say thank you in a special way. He chose to make two significant donations to the Hospital. What's more, he wanted to come back to the Hospital to personally thank his caregivers for their extraordinary care and concern, which he truly believes has allowed him to enjoy a healthy, active retirement with his wife, Anna, and to pursue his interests � going to the opera and playing golf. So he and his family recently visited the patient care units where he was treated.

"Every time I have been at Winthrop, all of the nurses were caring, compassionate and kind. I think it's time to give back, and I wanted to give back to an institution that has served me well," said Mr. Apollo, whose family was also grateful for the nurses' kindness and diligence in keeping them well-informed during each of Mr. Apollo's hospitalizations.

"There truly is a special dimension of care here at Winthrop, and Mr. Apollo is a testament to that care. The staff made such an impact on him that he was prompted to give back in a way that will touch the lives of countless other patients who come to Winthrop," said John P. Broder, Vice President of External Affairs and Development at Winthrop.

Members of Winthrop's Administration were also present for a special plaque dedication held in Mr. Apollo's honor.
