  • "Don't be nervous; it will all be finished in the blink of an eye!" Nursing Supervisor, Barbara Fischer, RN (R) reassured William Sauer of Garden City (seated, L), who received a flu inoculation through Winthrop's immunization program, part of the Hospital's community outreach and health education program. This year, pneumonia immunization was provided to medically appropriate seniors as well. More than 37 Winthrop clinicians - physicians and registered nurses - volunteered at three locations. They were ably assisted at each site by Winthrop's volunteers, who willingly provided support services.

    Teens for Tots/Teen Angels Donation to Child Life Program



    A group of inspired, humane, and civic-minded Nassau County teenagers has raised funds in order to donate valuable gifts to Winthrop's Child Life Program. The Teens for Tots/Teen Angels group, guided and advised by an adult volunteer, raised enough money to purchase a television set, television VCR with FM radio, video tapes, and toys for Winthrop's Pediatric Playroom. These dedicated teens presented Winthrop's Child Life Specialist Christie O'Keefe, MA, with their gifts, including a table top hockey game. Winthrop's Child Life Program, founded in l992, provides individualized support, therapeutic play, and education to hospitalized children, which help them to adjust to hospitalization.
