Reservations are required for Respite Care stays. For more information contact our Admissions Department .

The Methodist Home s Rehabilitation Center is the cornerstone of our subacute/short-term rehabilitation program.

  • Are you looking for a conveniently located top-notch facility (and professional staff) to get back in shape after a knee, hip or shoulder fracture?
  • Do you need to find the best place for your elderly mother to recover after hospitalization due to a serious illness or accident?

We help our guests get back to life with our state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Center, highly qualified therapists and knowledgeable, caring staff. We offer physical and occupational therapy seven-days-a-week and speech therapy services five-days-a-week.

Our interdisciplinary staff collaborates closely with attending physicians from New York Columbia Presbyterian and Montefiore Hospitals.

Guests may commute to our central location (free on-site parking) or stay in our secure short-term accommodations. We offer 40 private rooms with full bathrooms for our short-term guests.
