Burke Rehabilitation Opens New Outpatient Facility in Bronx

Burke Rehabilitation announced the expansion of its therapy services with the opening of a new site in the Bronx Hutchinson Metro Center, 1250 Waters Place, Tower 1, 6th Floor. Burke held a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 18 to mark the relocation and expansion of services previously provided at 2826 Westchester Avenue.

Attending the ribbon cutting were Dr. Philip Ozuah, Montefiore President and CEO, and elected officials representing the Bronx, including NYS Assembly member Michael Benedetto and NYC Council member Marjorie Velazquez. Scott Edelman, Burke’s Interim Executive Director, and Dr. Mooyeon Oh-Park, SVP and Chief Medical Officer of Burke, were joined by Montefiore physicians, Burke leadership, and therapists to celebrate the opening.

The new facility more than doubles the size of the former location and provides over 5,000 square feet of brightly lit and open space, outfitted with the latest technologies. Ample patient parking is available. The facility offers five private treatment rooms, including a designated occupational therapy area. In addition to physical and occupational therapy, the site provides speech and swallowing therapy.

“The new therapy space at Hutch Metro will allow us to continue to provide excellent multidisciplinary rehabilitative care in a more spacious and comfortable environment,” said Site Supervisor Jonathan Mroz. “We have added several new pieces of equipment which will be utilized in providing rehabilitation for our growing number of neurologically involved patients. This new location will allow Burke to better serve the rehabilitative needs of the Bronx community by providing access to the same exceptional level of care available at our flagship outpatient location in White Plains.”

Some additional features include:

  • Two oversized hi-low treatment tables
  • Body weight support track system to be used for ambulation, balance and transfer activities
  • Two sets of high-low parallel bars for balance and gait training activities
  • BITS balance system
  • RT Xcite – a device that utilizes mild electrical stimulation to engage atrophied muscles
