Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) recently presented Winthrop-University Hospital with an Assembly Resolution in honor of Nurses Week in New York State. A co-sponsor of the resolution, Ra wanted to recognize Winthrop, which serves many in the community as the backbone of the healthcare industry. The nearly 1,500 nurses on staff at Winthrop play a crucial role in providing the medical and emotional care patients and their families need.

“I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to recognize the hardworking nursing staff at Winthrop,” said Ra. “While it is important to celebrate Nurses Week, it is also important to remember the tremendous efforts of nurses throughout the entire year. Winthrop goes above and beyond by providing exemplary inpatient and outpatient services to the Long Island community. Not only do patients receive world-class medical attention, they also are treated with comfort and care in their time of need. I would like to join the members of the community in sharing my great appreciation for the selfless work done by the nurses of Winthrop, as well as all nurses across Long Island.”

Winthrop-University Hospital is a major regional healthcare resource offering outstanding inpatient and outpatient services to everyone from newborns to the elderly. The hospital’s 6,000 employees, including 1,500 nurses, provide great care and dedication to Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties.
