"When I'm here, I feel like I'm among family. ... It really is the best place to get well."
Joe Arlotta of Cedar Knolls, NJ, travels all the way to Westchester for his physical therapy because "Burke is like one big family," he said. "When I’m here, I feel like I’m amongst family."
Joe first came to Burke after suffering six strokes in 2004. After receiving excellent care during his inpatient rehabilitation therapy, he decided to stay with the Burke family in our Fit-4-Life After Stroke Program. "Burke has so many new equipment and talented therapists," Joe noted. "It really is the best place to get well."
Seeing the fantastic results after being an inpatient, he came back again in 2012, this time to Burke's Outpatient Division, after having a small stroke early in the year.
"I have nothing but high marks for all the doctors and therapists here," Joe said, adding that he's expecting to make great strides in recovery and is looking forward to driving again soon.
Burke Rehabilitation Hospital believes that patients and referral sources should have accurate information when it comes to making healthcare decisions. This includes choosing a rehabilitation facility and program.
One way to facilitate this process is to report our patient outcomes information. Outcomes are a report card of sorts that gauge how well patients do in a program and that in turn sheds light on how we are doing as a rehabilitation hospital.
