By employing the highest skilled rehabilitation professionals and providing them with advanced training in state of the art rehabilitation specialty programming and technological advancements, we are fully equipped to help patients recover from injury and illness.
Our professional, compassionate and experienced therapists use a patient-focused care approach and the latest evidence-based rehabilitative guidelines.

We provide physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy on an individual or an interdisciplinary basis, as needed.
Our highly-skilled physical therapy staff gets people moving by decreasing pain and improving mobility. We make sure the therapy is right for each patient by providing individual treatment sessions.
Occupational therapists help people to carry out the daily activities, roles and routines that are most important and meaningful to them by restoring and teaching skills needed for independent living.

Skilled Nursing Unit
Our Skilled Nursing Unit is a 64-bed nursing and rehabilitation center. Whether you are in need of a short-term rehabilitation after an injury or long-term for eldercare or assisted living services, we are committed to promoting the highest level of independence and the best skilled nursing care in a home-like setting.
Achieving Results with Comprehensive Individual Plans
Our goal is to help each patient achieve their goals – whether that’s showing a patient how to put their socks and shoes on after suffering a hip fracture, make a sandwich using only one hand after a stroke, or even something as simple and getting in and out of bed by themselves. We provide high quality, patient-focused care with attention to each patient’s individual needs. We work with every patient to achieve and maximize their level of function and are committed to providing a progressive, supportive and positive environment for our patients, referring physicians and staff.
Our philosophy is to help patients achieve the best functional outcome, provided by an experienced and NYS licensed therapist. We spend quality “one-on-one” time with every patient at every visit, and the care is delivered solely by a licensed therapist(s) and therapist assistant(s). We work closely with your physician(s) to develop and maintain a comprehensive plan of care.
