Although Burke's goal is to always discharge patients to their home environment, some patients who are discharged from an inpatient program will require additional inpatient care. One option for them would be sub-acute rehabilitation. Although not as intensive as acute rehab, sub-acute care at a skilled nursing facility (nursing home) may be required for patients with serious illnesses or injuries who require more time for rehabilitation.
The number of patients that are discharged from Burke to a sub acute setting varies each year by program. For additional information on this or any of Burke's published outcomes, please refer to the inpatient section of our website.
