Winthrop Celebrates Groundbreaking of New Research Institute

With its deep commitment to medical education and research, Winthrop successfully blends the progressive philosophy, sophistication and advances of a teaching and research institution with a very personal approach to patient care. The Hospital�s longstanding academic mission was strengthened in 2011 when Winthrop became a Clinical Campus of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, educating 80 third- and fourthyear medical students each year, and making Winthrop the only Long Island hospital training students under this model.

Members of Winthrop�s senior administration and Board of Directors recently gathered to mark the groundbreaking of the new Research Institute. Pictured (l.-r.) are Joseph Burke, Vice President, Engineering and Facilities; Garry J. Schwall, Chief Operating Officer; Winthrop Board Member Edward Travaglianti; Palmira Cataliotti, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; John F. Collins, Winthrop�s President & CEO; Charles M. Strain, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Winthrop; Alan Jacobson, MD, Chief Research Officer; Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, RN, Executive Director of Winthrop�s Diabetes and Obesity Institute; and John F. Aloia, MD, Winthrop�s Chief Academic Officer.

Further underscoring the importance of medical education and research, Winthrop recently broke ground on a new four-floor, 95,000-square-foot Research Institute that will include core laboratories and a Clinical Trial Center for the Hospital�s research team. The Institute will also feature a large lecture hall, a simulation lab and training rooms where students will have the opportunity to learn from Winthrop�s physician-teachers.

�The future of medicine lies in the ability to transform cutting-edge discoveries made in the laboratory into real-life treatments for patients suffering from debilitating illnesses such as diabetes, cardiometabolic disease, Alzheimer�s disease and arthritis,� said John Collins, President & CEO of Winthrop-University Hospital. �The effective transition of new discoveries from the �bench to bedside� is the vision and goal upon which the Winthrop Research Institute is focused.�
