  • WINTHROP'S LITTLE "FIRST" LADY Winthrop welcomes the first baby to be born in The New Life Center, on the morning of August 17, 1998 at 6:44 AM. Little Sedeya-Demi Harvey, the daughter of Simone Todd and Damon Harvey of Uniondale, who weighed in at seven pounds, eight ounces, is a beautiful angel, come to earth in a facility created expressly for the beginning of life. Celebrating the birth were Howard F. Treiber, Chairman of the Board of The Treiber Group LLC, a longtime member of the Board of Directors of Winthrop-University Hospital, and his son, Craig, President of The Treiber Group, who presented the newborn and her parents with a generous check for $1,000, on behalf of the Treiber family. As August 17th was Sedeya-Demi's birthday, Winthrop also feted her with a chubby Teddy bear. L-R are W. Peter Daniels, Winthrop's Chief Operating Officer; Craig Treiber; Howard F. Treiber; Judy Laudone, RN, Nurse Manager, Labor and Delivery; Pamela Hoar, RN, MSN, Assistant Director of Nursing, Maternal/Child Care; Dev Maulik, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology; Simone Todd, holding her newborn, Sedeya-Demi; and Jeffrey Miller, MD, Voluntary Attending, the Obstetrician/Gynecologist who delivered her.

    Local officials congratulate Winthrop on the dedication and opening of The New Life Center. L-R are John P. Broder, Vice President - External Affairs, Winthrop; Elizabeth A. J. Conlon, Trustee, Village of Mineola; Dev Maulik, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology; The Hon. John P. Colbert, Mayor of Mineola; Maryanne Warnecke and Louis Santosus, Jr., Trustees, Village of Mineola.

    Attending the formal dedication of The New Life Center were (L-R) The Honorable Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., State Senator, District 8; The Honorable Maureen O'Connell, State Assemblywoman, 17th District; and Martin J. Delaney, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Winthrop South Nassau University Health System and President and Chief Executive Officer of Winthrop-University Hospital.

    The New Life Center's modern nursing station, centrally located on the Unit, receives the light and cheer of the large overhead skylight.

    The steadfast support of Winthrop's Board of Directors and their spouses was instrumental in making The New Life Center a reality. L-R: Betsy Lane (Garden City), the wife of John T. Lane, a longtime Winthrop Board member, and Richard A. Newhouse, Jr., and his wife, Tracy (Westbury) applaud Winthrop's achievement. Mr. Newhouse, Vice Chairman of Winthrop's Board of Directors, and Chairman of the Board's Buildings and Grounds Committee, served as the Board Committee's "eyes and ears" during the one year construction project.

    John H. Krumpe (center) (Glen Head), Chairman of the Board of Directors of Winthrop-University Hospital, addressed the guests at the Dedication Ceremony. Here, Mr. Krumpe and his wife, Kathryne (L) enjoy the festive event with Board Member George J. Farrell, Jr. (Sag Harbor).

    Mary Ellen Hay (left), with her husband, Jim (right), parents of quadruplets born at Winthrop, share a chuckle as Winthrop's President and Chief Executive Officer, Martin J. Delaney, reminisces about the Hospital's preparation for the birth of the quads. Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., left rear, and Dr. Harold Schulman, right rear, share in the joyous memory.

    Interior views of the 16 Labor/Delivery/Recovery suites in The New Life Center reveal advanced technological equipment within large, homelike rooms, softened with contemporary - and feminine - d�cor.

    Winthrop's Auxilians have donated $2.5 million for The New Life Center. L-R: Judy Soba, President (Mineola); Dorothy Imgram, Education Chairperson (Garden City); and Kathryn Rayfield, Tree of Memory Chairperson (Garden City).

    A view of the huge party tent at Winthrop, filled with more than 400 guests, proved that the early birds got the best seats! An abundance of supporters and guests - including those who occupied the "standing room" area - responded to speeches with incomparable enthusiasm.
