Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, a member of the Montefiore Health System, is one of the nation’s premiere leaders in rehabilitation medicine. For over 100 years, we have provided high quality, innovative and compassionate care to patients at our 150-bed adult acute rehabilitation hospital in White Plains, New York. We also provide care through an extensive network of outpatient locations across the region.
Burke offers both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation care for the full range of neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiac, and pulmonary conditions resulting from illness, injury or surgery. This includes rehabilitation for patients recovering from stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation, complicated fracture, cardiac and pulmonary disease, and neurological diseases and disorders.
Patients are frequently transferred to Burke for intensive inpatient rehabilitation care directly from acute care hospitals once their condition is stable. Others are referred for care on an outpatient basis by their own provider or they can self-refer.
We believe in a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation care to ensure the best outcomes. Our patients have access to a remarkable range of highly specialized and respected medical experts including neurologists, physiatrists, internists, rheumatologists, pulmonologists, and neurophysiologists, as well as specially trained nurses, and physical, occupational, and speech therapists. Also integral to our multidisciplinary care teams are specialized respiratory therapists, social workers, audiologists, psychologists, pharmacists, and dietitians, among others. Recreational therapy, spiritual services, inter-generational therapy and participation by family members and caregivers directly and in family support groups, round out our unique approach to care.
We also know that the healing environment is an important aspect of recovery and Burke is proud to be able to offer patients care in an idyllic setting: our 61-acre campus of rolling hills and award-winning foliage. The neoclassical buildings and a series of graceful colonnades—all with a view of the surrounding countryside— provide a serene environment well suited to support physical rehabilitation.
In recognition of state-of-the art treatment and high quality standards integral to care at Burke, it is accredited by the Joint Commission, the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care, and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, reflecting its ongoing commitment to providing the highest levels of rehabilitation care These two organizations set the gold standard for acute care rehabilitation hospitals in the United States.
