A formal Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on December 4, 1997 welcomed the new Homecare*America Healthcare Superstore to its new location at 111 East Jericho Turnpike, Mineola. The store serves the public seven days a week.

Operated by the Winthrop South Nassau University Health System through its franchise partnership with Homecare Alliance, Inc., the Superstore exemplifies Winthrop's extension of healthcare expertise to the external community. Winthrop continues to develop as an integrated community healthcare system, responding to patients' needs across the continuum of care - emergency, acute, chronic, ambulatory surgery, primary care, home care, and rehabilitation. With its "sister" store at 310 Merrick Road, Rockville Centre, the Superstore provides for the needs of recovering patients. Senior citizens, people with chronic diseases or conditions, including diabetes, those in need of assistive devices, athletes suffering from short-term injuries, and recently discharged hospital patients are among the typical customers.

The cheerfully decorated stores have their own parking areas and are arranged in a sequence of well-stocked, semi-private "concept shops" - discrete departments, each dedicated to one product category, and staffed by highly-trained Product Consultants. A wide circular corridor provides an easily navigable pathway around the entire store, comfortably traversable by shoppers using assistive devices.

Mayor Colbert expressed his personal appreciation to both the Winthrop South Nassau University Health System and to HomecareI America founders, Dr. Larry Baratta and his brother, Vincent, the company's President. "We appreciate the trust you have shown in the future of the Village of Mineola, and the stimulus to our commercial life." Winthrop's Board President, Alfred H. Hicks observed: "Customers know they can return to the store, to ask questions - even if they are not buying an item that day. HomecareHAmerica epitomizes a consumer-friendly atmosphere, and the customers you attract will be retained."
