Russell Ippolito came to Burke after suffering from severe respiratory issues. “I chose Burke because I was told that Burke Rehabilitation Hospital has the most outstanding Physical & Occupational Therapy programs and excellent service, and they were right,” Russell said.
He had about a 10 day stay in the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program where he participated in rigorous physical and occupational therapy for at least three hours per day nearly every day of his stay. “The therapists pushed me, but at the same time encouraged me to continue towards my recovery,” Russell added. “The facility is wonderful and the staff is friendly and supportive.”
Burke Rehabilitation Hospital believes that patients and referral sources should have accurate information when it comes to making healthcare decisions. This includes choosing a rehabilitation facility and program.
One way to facilitate this process is to report our patient outcomes information. Outcomes are a report card of sorts that gauge how well patients do in a program and that in turn sheds light on how we are doing as a rehabilitation hospital.
