Our goal is always to have patients return home after discharge from Burke. In fact the vast majority of patients do just that. In 2010, more than 82% of all patients who came to Burke as an inpatient, returned to home of their previous living situation. However, sometimes patients will need ongoing rehabilitation or additional care after they leave Burke. For these patients, Burke offers assistance through Network of affiliate sub acute rehabilitation facilities, our Outpatient division or even help with securing home care.
Burke is dedicated to ensuring that once you are discharged that your rehabilitation and care will continue for as long as necessary.
Burke's social work case managers have developed a resource guide to help ease your transition from “Hospital to Home,” with an extensive list* of agencies, community resources and Burke programs. If you have any questions when you return home, please feel free to call us at (914) 597-2500 and ask for your case manager.
