The annual Burke Award Dinner will be held on Thursday, June 16th at 6:00PM, at Brae Burn Country Club in Purchase, New York.
The Burke Award is conferred upon an individual or group who has made significant contributions to the field of rehabilitation, either through personal achievements, the development of research or the establishment of programs and facilities to assist individuals with disabilities.
It recognizes strength and courage in overcoming the challenge of a disability or a significant contribution to the understanding of physical disability. It remains the highest honor bestowed by the Board of Trustees of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital.
The Burke Award is Burke’s premier fundraiser, with proceeds supporting Burke’s outstanding rehabilitative care services, the development of critical new initiatives, and the expansion of services and programs offered through our extensive network of outpatient locations.
This year’s Burke Award Honoree is retiring President & CEO Jeffrey Menkes.
Throughout his career, Jeff helped to shape the landscape of healthcare in our region. Most recently, Jeff navigated the successful affiliation of Burke with the Montefiore Health System and has led the hospital over the last 5 years. During his tenure, the hospital innovated its programs, upgraded its facilities and expanded the continuum of rehabilitative care offered to its patients. After a long and prosperous career, Jeff will be retiring this summer.
Your generosity on this night will make a difference in the lives of the thousands of patients Burke serves each year.
