A Letter from Burke’s CEO, Dr. Mary Beth Walsh

Mary Beth Walsh, M.D.

Dear Community Members:
I hope your new year is off to a wonderful start. This week has been an eventful one as our new relationship with the Montefiore Health System was finalized. The agreement will help us expand our reach and allow us to bring our high quality rehabilitation to more patients. This alliance will further the Burke mission and create a collaborative environment that will benefit our patients and the community.

As you may know, today’s healthcare environment is changing. It has become commonplace for hospitals to create partnerships. Burke chose to affiliate with the Montefiore Health System because their mission is closely aligned with our own. The partnership will allow Burke to offer our specialized inpatient rehabilitation programs and comprehensive outpatient services to more patients, help improve outcomes and collaborate with an organization that supports Burke’s vision.

Whether you are a past or current patient, care giver or community member, you are an important part of our success here at Burke. We look forward to continuing to provide you and your families with the best care and services possible.

We wish you a happy and healthy 2016.


Mary Beth Walsh, MD                                                                       
Executive Medical Director/CEO
