New hospice unit named in honor of longtime Memorial Medical Center employee

Niagara Hospice and the Schoellkopf Health Center dedicated David's Path, a new hospice unit on the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center campus, on May 28.

The new unit, located on the second floor of the Schoellkopf Health Center, is named for David Winker, a beloved Memorial Medical Center employee who spent his final days surrounded by family members while being cared for at Niagara Hospice House in Lockport. David, who passed away last year, had worked at Memorial since 1966 when he was hired as a dietary kitchen helper. He was promoted to senior attendant in 1970 and assigned as a dietary stores clerk in 1983.

Among those in attendance were David's sister, Kathleen Del Prince (right) and her husband Carl (show at left).

David Winker was well known by his colleagues at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center as a man who, except in the wintertime, rode his bicycle to work every day for nearly 47 years from his Town of Niagara residence. The unit is named David’s Path, providing a fitting tribute to him and his love of riding. (More ...)
