Over the past several years, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital’s outpatient facilities have seen a significant increase in the need for their services. Just last year, in 2012, Burke had over 71,000 outpatient — an increase of almost 6,000 visits compared to 2009.
To address the growing demand for outpatient therapy, we have opened two additional satellite locations this year. The sites are located at the Towne Center in Somers as well as at Ridge Hill in Yonkers. Both sites serve as important additions to the comprehensive rehabilitation services offered by Burke at the main hospital campus in White Plains and available at our other satellite centers in Purchase, Mamaroneck and the Bronx. Our goal is to continue to provide rehabilitation services of the highest quality, as expected from a Burke facility, in locations that are both accessible and convenient to residents.
Burke’s Outpatient department services include physical and occupational therapy; speech, language and swallowing therapy; cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation; an arthritis center; an osteoporosis screening service and a memory evaluation and treatment service.
Our individually tailored outpatient programs complement the acute, intensive inpatient experience at Burke. We want to help each patient achieve their own goals and reach their full potential. Former inpatients can continue their progress while community residents have access to rehabilitative services provided in a professional and compassionate environment at any of our six convenient locations.
Expertise in rehabilitation care for patients of all types has long been a trademark of Burke. We provide care for patients with physical disabilities resulting from orthopedic and sports injuries, stroke, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, cardiac disease, chronic pulmonary disease, arthritis and amputation, just to name a few.
We are proud to be part of the continuum of care offered at Burke. We also offer various exercise and education programs to patients after discharge from therapy through the Fitness Center at Burke and Wellness Center.
Thank you for your support and helping us build and maintain a solid foundation in the community over the years. We look forward to continuing to enhance the lives of our patients for many years to come.
