Life After Burke

Discharge to Skilled Nursing Facilities

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.



When Additional Care is Needed

One of Burke's primary goals for patients is that they be able to return to the home environment from which they came. However, some patients who are discharged from an inpatient program at Burke will require additional inpatient care.

Although not as intensive, sub acute care at a skilled nursing facility may be required for patients with serious illnesses or injuries who require more time for rehabilitation or skilled nursing care.

New Patient Visitation Policy Visiting hours 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. One visitor at a time. Two visitors per day.

What's Happening at Burke

Thank you to everyone for making the Burke Award special!

The celebration of the 25th Burke Award Dinner was held on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

This year’s event was extra special as we saluted and honored our Burke Healthcare Heroes who have worked tirelessly treating survivors of COVID-19, as well as traditional rehabilitation patients.

Our staff are truly heroes for the passion, dedication and professionalism they demonstrate every day, especially in the face of this unprecedented challenge. Their efforts have never wavered, and they should be recognized and applauded.

There’s still time to make a donation in support of our Healthcare Heroes.
