About Us

Burke Auxiliary

The Burke Rehabilitation Auxiliary, established in 1959, is a group of men and women with the following mission:

  • To enhance the patient and staff experience;
  • To serve as a fundraising arm of the hospital;
  • To promote better understanding of Burke’s programs and goals within the community.

Since its beginning more than 50 years ago, the Burke Auxiliary has donated over $1 million to special projects at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. The Auxiliary sponsors many events and activities throughout the year and members may be as active as they like. 

For 2021, annual dues are $35 for an individual and $60 for a couple. To join, download a membership form here. For more information, contact Frances DeFreitas, Membership Chair, at 914-948-0978.

What's Happening at Burke

Thank you to everyone for making the Burke Award special!

The celebration of the 25th Burke Award Dinner was held on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

This year’s event was extra special as we saluted and honored our Burke Healthcare Heroes who have worked tirelessly treating survivors of COVID-19, as well as traditional rehabilitation patients.

Our staff are truly heroes for the passion, dedication and professionalism they demonstrate every day, especially in the face of this unprecedented challenge. Their efforts have never wavered, and they should be recognized and applauded.

There’s still time to make a donation in support of our Healthcare Heroes.
