Thanks to the support of grateful patients and inspired donors like you, Burke is pursuing key initiatives to help patients in their recovery and for years to come. A gift to our strategic priorities demonstrates your belief in Burke and represents an investment in our future.
To support the more complex needs of our patients, we are continuously upgrading existing or purchasing new equipment and technology to improve our patients’ recovery. We will also be upgrading patient rooms, offering more private accommodations, to enhance the overall patient experience.
In an effort to meet the ever-growing demand for outpatient services, Burke is opening additional outpatient facilities in your community. We are also offering more specialized services within our existing sites, to better serve you.
To support our staff in order for them to bring the latest techniques and innovations in rehabilitation to our patients, we encourage all to continue their education and upgrade certifications. Additionally, Burke offers programs to college students who are considering a future in rehabilitative medicine and offers a two-year Neurorehabilitation Fellowship for physicians.
The first of its kind in the country in a rehabilitation hospital, Burke’s Caregiver Center offers patients’ family and friends compassionate support and practical resources in a healing environment. A dedicated social worker is available to offer guidance and information about caring for the patient upon discharge.
Did you know that Burke Rehabilitation Hospital was founded due to the generosity of one man -- John Masterson Burke?
Through his endowment, 61 acres were purchased in White Plains, New York and the hospital was designed and constructed by the prominent architectural firm McKim, Mead & White. Since its opening in 1915, the hospital has relied on donations from the public for its continued operation.
