Strategic Initiatives

As part of Burke's ongoing fundraising efforts, we have determined key initiatives that will help Burke remain at the forefront of rehabilitation medicine and ensure that our patients continue to receive the high-quality, leading-edge care they’ve received from Burke since it first opened its doors more than 100 years ago. These initiatives include programs such as, but not limited to: 

Enhancing The Inpatient Experience
This includes new state-of-the-art equipment, specialized wheelchairs and other technology that will ensure our patients continue to receive cutting–edge rehabilitative care. 

Expanding Our Outpatient Care Management Program
This program meets a critical need for patients who transition from an inpatient to outpatient setting. These patients require individualized care beyond the scope of rehabilitation therapy, especially those recovering from neurological and other traumatic conditions. With the support of a major donor, we launched the Lily & David Ju Outpatient Care Management Program in 2015 to provide patients, their loved ones and caregivers with counseling, referrals for resources and opportunities to participate in support groups to help them throughout their recovery.  

Enlarging Our Outpatient Facility in White Plains
Burke’s outpatient program has experienced tremendous growth in the past 5 years, increasing enrollment by nearly 51%, and we have just opened our 6th outpatient satellite facility in Armonk, NY.  We envision creating a much larger outpatient facility in close proximity to our main White Plains campus to accommodate such growth.  

Evolving by Creating Innovative Treatments for Rehabilitation Medicine Through Clinical Research
As a leader in rehabilitation medicine, Burke continues to advance patient care by exploring new pathways through clinical research.
