A message from John F. Collins, President and CEO, and Charles Strain, Chairman of the Board.
Welcome to the online home of Winthrop-University Hospital's new Research and Academic Center.
This site has been designed with “ease” in mind, providing you with a virtual tour of the new facility. As you “navigate through” the new Center, descriptions of how each space will function are aligned with opportunities for support and recognition.
We know that our best advocate as we strive toward future achievements is you; and this site is an effective tool of communicating the vision and plans that will take us there. It is my hope that the information provided will help you better understand the new Research and Academic Center and will be a valuable resource as you convey Winthrop’s exciting plans to others in the community.
About the Building
Recently, the hospital broke ground on this magnificent 95,000 square foot facility. The Research and Academic Center is designed to include core laboratories, a clinical trial center and classrooms for the medical students who reside at Winthrop as part its role as a teaching hospital and a Clinical Campus of the Stony Brook School of Medicine. In addition to research on major health issues such as diabetes, obesity and cardiometabolic complications that arise from those conditions, Winthrop’s Research Institute will focus on other pressing national and local health issues, including reducing premature births and treating conditions related to aging, such as Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis.
As a true translational research center, the building has been designed to provide for working relationships as well as chance encounters between diverse researchers – those involved in pure “bench” research and those conducting clinical trials -- in order to promote innovative ideas and bring about breakthroughs. To encourage this type of interaction, the design incorporates an open stair, uniting the floors and giving the building’s occupants access to a third floor meeting area intended to inspire conversation and collaboration.
In addition, the ground floor will include a large auditorium that can be used to host community educational events or medical lectures. The entire design was developed with an eye to enhancing the visual appeal of this section of the Village and adding to the economic and intellectual vitality of the community.
We hope that you will consider making a donation to this exciting new project that will be so important in helping us continue our commitment to improving the health of this area and the entire region as a whole.
