  • Winthrop's Administrators and local elected officials have expressed appreciation of Winthrop's receipt of two grants, awarded by the State of New York's Health Workforce Retraining Initiative, totaling more than $1.7 million, to enable Winthrop to retrain employees. Thanks to the personal intervention and support of the elected officials pictured here, Winthrop was awarded two major grants - the largest sum designated for an individual hospital. "By helping workers to prepare for these changes, we can ensure that patients receive the high quality care they need from trained professionals," wrote New York's Governor George E. Pataki. Celebrating the grants are (L-R:) The Hon. John P. Colbert, Mayor of Mineola; The Hon. Richard J. Nicolello, Nassau County Legislator, District 9; The Hon. Michael A. L. Balboni, New York State Senator, District 7; Martin J.
