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: 

Inpatient Enhancements and Technology
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

Outpatient Expansion and Services
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.  

Medical Education
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 Marsal Caregiver Center at Burke
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.
