NYU Winthrop Named a Preferred Medical Partner of the New York State Troopers PBA

NYU Winthrop Named a Preferred Medical Partner of the New York State Troopers PBA

NYU Winthrop Hospital has been named a Preferred Medical Partner of the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association (PBA). From routine healthcare screenings to complex medical diagnoses, the goal of the partnership is to positively impact this cadre of first responders and community servants who, if faced with a medical issue, can get the first-rate care they need in order to return to the work force in a timely fashion.

Through the partnership, a State Trooper Surgeons’ Executive Care Nurse assesses the medical needs of PBA members and then works to connect them with the appropriate specialists for care. To commemorate the partnership, members of the New York State Troopers PBA and State Trooper Surgeons group recently visited the Hospital, where they presented Senior leadership and physicians involved in the collaboration with a special plaque.

NYU Winthrop Named a Preferred Medical Partner of the New York State Troopers PBA(l-r) Robert Enright, Senior Physician Liaison at NYU Winthrop; Sara Dzembo, LPN, State Trooper Surgeons Executive Care Nurse; Kristina Betancourt, RN, Administrative Director, Market Development, NYU Winthrop; Peter Nunziata, Troop L Delegate; Collin E.M. Brathwaite, Chairman of Surgery, NYU Winthrop; Frank Bandiero, Troop L Public Information Officer; Fahd Ali, MD, Attending Surgeon, NYU Winthrop; Michael C. Brooks, Director, State Trooper Surgeons; John F. Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop; Barry Rosenthal, MD, Chairman of Emergency Medicine and Joseph Greco, MD, Chief Medical Officer at NYU Winthrop.

"NYU Winthrop is committed to serving the healthcare needs of all community members, and it is a privilege to be considered a preferred medical resource for those who put their lives on the line every day to provide a vital public service," said John F. Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop.

"As one of the select few American College of Surgeons'(ACS) Level 1 Trauma Centers in the area, NYU Winthrop is committed to providing the highest quality of medical care to members of law enforcement, both active and retired, and their families," added Fahd Ali, MD, Attending Surgeon at NYU Winthrop.

Providing unparalleled healthcare to individuals who selflessly serve the community has long been a priority for NYU Winthrop. For example, through the Hospital's Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, many World Trade Center (WTC) first responders, who are referred to the Hospital by Stony Brook University's WTC Health Program, receive specialist services at NYU Winthrop to address the host of medical conditions that often result from exposure to the toxic dust at Ground Zero.

"Our goal is to continually provide the best medical outcomes for all men, women and children, and especially to those who have scarified their own well being for the safety of others," added Mr. Collins.
