Burke Rehabilitation Hospital Honored by Newsweek

Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, a member of the Montefiore Health System, announced it has been named to America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2022 by Newsweek. This prestigious award recognizes excellence among inpatient rehabilitation facilities throughout the United States.

Burke is one of only nine facilities in New York State to achieve the recognition and the only one in Westchester County.

“Burke is proud to be recognized as one the most highly regarded physical rehabilitation facilities in the country,” Burke’s Executive Director Scott Edelman said. “Our clinical teams approach, deep expertise and commitment to delivering the highest quality care underpin this honor. We are committed to ensuring that each patient’s experience is the best it can be and serving our communities by continuously earning this hard-won accolade.”

Burke was particularly recognized for its ‘Standout Program’ in stroke rehabilitation. It serves about 1,000 stroke rehabilitation patients per year, more than any other hospital in New York State.

Dr. Mooyeon Oh-Park, SVP and Chief Medical Officer, commented, “Our stroke program is an outstanding example of our patient care model. Close liaisons with stroke centers at acute care hospitals allow us to bring in patients faster and begin rehabilitation with minimal delay, an important factor in recovery. Our state-of-the-art rehabilitation gyms, staffed by experts in complex rehabilitation, afford our patients every advantage in the recovery process.” She concluded, “Patients are cared for by dedicated multidisciplinary teams that hold the patients’ and families’ best interests at heart.”

Of the nearly 1,200 inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the country, Burke joins the ranks of 255 that were named to this list. Newsweek’s rankings are based on stringent quality metrics from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), accreditation status, expert opinions of 4,400 professionals in the field and patient quality ratings. The award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

Burke Rehabilitation is a not-for-profit healthcare organization devoted solely to acute physical rehabilitation. Its main campus is located in White Plains, NY. Founded in 1915 through an endowment from philanthropist John Masterson Burke, it has been a member of the Montefiore Health System since 2016. Burke operates the only hospital in Westchester County dedicated solely to adult and adolescent rehabilitation medicine. Burke also offers therapeutic care in locations throughout Westchester County, the Hudson Valley, and the Bronx for those who have experienced injuries, surgery, or chronic conditions, from the simple to the very complex.
