This past year has been an exciting one at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and we are delighted to have been able to share with you information about and advances in rehabilitation. Thank you for keeping up with our blog, sending in your questions and sharing our blog posts, moving the conversation forward and expanding the Burke family.
Here’s a look-back at the top five posts you have shared the most:
1) April post by Dr. Michael Reding on recognizing stroke
2) October post by Dr. Carolin Dohle on what to expect from stroke rehab
3) September post by Dr. Barry Jordan answering a reader’s question about brain injury recovery
4) February post by Dr. Argyrios Stampas on recovering from spinal cord injury
5) July post by Dr. Stampas on what people need to know about spinal cord injury
We look forward to bringing you more important topics and having a continued conversation with you in 2014 and beyond. Along with the blog, you can also reach out to us on our website and various social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.
We also are pleased to announce that in November, we reached more than 1,000 fans on Facebook, nearly 800 followers on LinkedIn and almost 250 Twitter followers. As we strive to provide you with the latest news about rehabilitation, advances in research and outpatient services, we thank all of you for continuing the conversation on these important topics and for sharing Burke with your families, friends and colleagues.
Lastly, for the first time in nearly 100 years, Burke Rehabilitation Center unveiled a new logo that better-encapsulates our mission and synergy between research and rehabilitation. Burke is truly a rehabilitation center with our core business coming from the inpatient hospital but also features a dedicated medical research institute on the same campus. This association makes Burke one of the only rehabilitation centers in the United States offering this collaboration. Over the years, Burke also has expanded our reach into outpatient rehabilitation, now providing quality care at six locations throughout Westchester and the Bronx.
The new logo captures Burke’s three divisions that all strive to reduce disability from illness, injury or surgery. That hasn’t changed in the past 100 years and we hope that we will continue to do the same for the next 100 years.
From all of us at Burke, happy holidays and a safe and healthy new year!
