About Us

Become a Burke Volunteer

Volunteers help make Burke Rehabilitation Hospital the unique and friendly facility that it is. Over the years, thousands of individuals, former patients and community organizations have donated their time and talents at Burke. Volunteers have contributed in different areas including friendly patient visits, our gift shop, and helping patients’ friends and loved ones in the Marsal Caregiver Center. Many of our volunteers also contribute to Burke by joining our active Auxiliary.

Below are some examples of volunteer opportunities at Burke:

  1. Visiting with patients
  2. Helping patients with iPads (Facetime)
  3. Organizing book cart and taking it around to patients
  4. Assisting visitors with questions
  5. Gift shop

Virtual volunteer opportunities:

  1. Writing cards to patients
  2. Making small crafts and gifts

In order to volunteer at Burke, you must be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. We ask adult volunteers to commit to a minimum of 2 hours, one day a week. Volunteers under the age of 18 are welcome to do virtual volunteer work – making cards for patients and staff – and will receive community service hours for this project.

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.
