We’re committed to Recovery and Rehabilitation

The pride of Bronx Center is our reputation for amazing physical, occupational and speech therapy. Helping our short term residents return to full independence sooner and more completely drives this team to excellence. And keeping our residents physically fit promotes a longer, healthier, happier life.

We offer therapy six days a week in a state of the art facility where our team of professionals employ the latest techniques and equipment to achieve startling results. And each participant works one on one with their therapist during each session. Every patient has a custom plan developed just for them. That plan considers your doctor’s instructions, your pre-surgical condition or physical abilities when you arrive, your post-surgical condition, individual goals, tolerance for discomfort during therapy, personal attitude and more.

The rewards of therapy, even when it’s difficult, are priceless and we make every effort to see that therapy sessions are productive yet enjoyable. At Bronx we “work the whole patient”. We do more than the focused rehabilitation prescribed by your doctor. We work with each patient to improve muscle tone and strength, joint mobility, posture, cardio-vascular and pulmonary function, mobility and pain relief. And we make sure that our patients regain as many of the skills they’ll need for independent living as possible.

We never lose sight of the fact that this facility is the home of nearly 200 people, little different from a mid-sized apartment building

We encourage residents to decorate their rooms and to make their space an expression of themselves. And we do our part to make everyone’s life as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Both short and long-term residents enjoy all of this, and more:

A beautifully landscaped enclosed courtyard. Our manicured lawns are perfect for bare feet in the summer, and when it gets too sunny, tables and benches in the cool breeze blowing under the trees keep everyone refreshed

Therapeutic recreation is both enjoyable and engaging. Developed in a collaboration of our therapy and recreation teams, it furthers physical and occupational therapy and makes it a fun part of daily life here.

Courtesy transportation is provided by our own fleet of custom vans, to take residents to outside medical appointments, outings, and even to pick up family members who need a ride to come and visit a resident.

A discreet security system ensures that our building is safe from unauthorized entry. It also protects those residents who need careful monitoring from finding themselves in an unfamiliar area of the building, or off the grounds.

An on-premises beautician and barber shop.

And of course we provide toiletries and bath amenities, the services of a beautician and barber, complimentary laundry service, wi-fi and individual cable television for each resident.

Amenities

  • Complimentary Bedside Phone

  • Complimentary TV Service

  • Complimentary WiFi

We’re invested in our patients’ comfort and well-being

Prior to 2012, our patients who required dialysis needed to be taken to an outside location several times each week. They had their routines upset, were frequently uncomfortable, and were subjected to the rigors of travel in all weathers. To remedy that we designed and built a state-of-the-art renal dialysis center within the Bronx Center. Today, our residents in need of dialysis have their personal schedules accommodated, never have to step outside for their treatment, and enjoy personal dialysis stations that feature reclining massage chairs, personal HDTV, cable access, and wireless internet connectivity.

The Dialysis Center’s director is Board Certified in both Internal Medicine and Nephrology, and is supported by a professional nephrology staff and a caring dialysis support team.
