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.
