Burke at Schaffer Extended Care Center

Through Schaffer’s partnership with Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, Burke physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists provide comprehensive rehabilitative care and individualized treatment programs for patients onsite. 

We are focused on helping patients rapidly recover and regain their independence. Outpatient and inpatient physiotherapy staff members have been trained by Burke experts and work with Burke therapists to ensure the therapeutic care meets the high standards Burke is recognized for.

To speak with our Burke physical therapists please call 914-365-3820.

Support Services

Most patients stay at Schaffer for at least a few weeks. So we cultivate an environment that meets the needs and interests of each patient. More than personalized care plans, this includes spaces where friends and family can visit comfortably, and therapeutic recreation that offers engaging activity for all levels of ability.

As part of Montefiore Health System, we believe an excellent way to help reduce your anxiety and provide an environment to promote the best outcome is through information and education. If you are in need of our services, please contact our Social Workers at 914-365-3807 for more information. 

Interpretation Services

We provide, free of charge, language interpreter services, telecommunication and amplification devices, and sign language services to persons who are deaf and/or hearing impaired. Please ask your healthcare professional for assistance. 

Customer Services

At the Schaffer Extended Care Center, the doctors, nurses and staff will treat you and your family as partners in your own care. One important way that you can be involved is to speak up.

Step Up and Speak Up

The most positive care outcomes occur when patients are proactive. Be sure to:

  • Speak up. Ask questions and voice concerns. It’s your body, and you have a right to know.
  • Pay attention. Make sure you’re getting the right treatments and medications.
  • Educate yourself. Learn about the medical tests you get and your treatment plan.
  • Find an advocate. Pick a trusted family member or friend to be your advocate.
  • Know what meds and why. Understand what medicines you take and why you take them.
  • Check before you go. Use a hospital, clinic, surgery center or other type of healthcare organization that meets The Joint Commission’s quality standards.
  • Participate in your care. You are the center of your healthcare team.
