Our Facility

Our Outstanding Services

24-Hour Skilled Nursing Care

Our skilled nurs­ing ser­vices are avail­able to our patients around the clock, and all deliv­ered by our com­pas­sion­ate team of nurs­es. Our nurs­es pro­vide treat­ment in con­text of each patient’s indi­vid­u­al­ized plan, thus offer­ing our patients care that is con­sis­tent with needs and goals.

Short-Term Rehabilitation

By devel­op­ing and imple­ment­ing a treat­ment plan which incor­po­rates all pro­grams and ser­vices nec­es­sary to restore health and mobil­i­ty, our stel­lar team of clin­i­cians and staff help patients return to their nor­mal lives as quick­ly as possible.

Long-Term Rehabilitation

For our patients who need inten­sive and ongo­ing res­i­den­tial care, our long-term reha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­grams are the per­fect solu­tion. We strong­ly believe in pro­vid­ing the most replen­ish­ing, renew­ing accom­mo­da­tions for those who stay with us, and our con­ve­nient loca­tions make it easy for fam­i­ly and loved ones to vis­it. Most impor­tant­ly, we work tire­less­ly to ensure that we are doing every­thing we can to pro­mote your over­all health and well-being.

Physician Services

Our high­ly trained physi­cians offer full diag­nos­tic and treat­ment ser­vices to our patients. They work in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the ther­a­pists, nurs­es, and staff to ensure that all con­di­tions are prop­er­ly man­aged and that every oppor­tu­ni­ty for suc­cess­ful heal­ing is brought to fruition.

Specialist Services

We have exten­sive spe­cial­ty ser­vices avail­able, pro­vid­ed by our stel­lar clin­i­cal team. The ser­vices include neu­rol­o­gy, physi­a­try, car­di­ol­o­gy, pul­monolo­gy, der­ma­tol­ogy, podi­a­try, ortho­pe­dics, vas­cu­lar, ENT, den­tistry, psy­chol­o­gy, psy­chi­a­try, and ophthalmology.

Physical Therapy

Our phys­i­cal ther­a­pists work with patients to treat injuries and chron­ic con­di­tions with exer­cise and move­ment. Our goal is to restore nor­mal func­tion­ing as soon as pos­si­ble so that our patients can expe­ri­ence the activ­i­ties they love.

Occupational Therapy

Occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­py is a key com­po­nent to a suc­cess­ful treat­ment plan. We focus on activ­i­ties designed to help our patients devel­op skills essen­tial not only to dai­ly liv­ing, but to enjoy­ing activ­i­ties that are most meaningful.

Respiratory Therapy

Acute and chron­ic breath­ing con­di­tions can be man­aged effec­tive­ly by our res­pi­ra­to­ry ther­a­pists, who use res­pi­ra­tors and med­i­cine to ensure that our patients can breathe as effort­less­ly as possible.

Social Work

Our team of qual­i­fied social work­ers help each of our patients and their fam­i­lies get accli­mat­ed through coun­sel­ing and edu­ca­tion. Our social work­ers are a won­der­ful resource for infor­ma­tion and sup­port at every stage of treatment.

Post-Operative Care

We offer per­son­al­ized plan­ning and care pre- and post- surgery, which helps make the expe­ri­ence as easy as pos­si­ble for our patients and for their fam­i­lies. Our metic­u­lous atten­tion to detail every step of the way, from pre-op edu­ca­tion and paper­work to post-op pain man­age­ment and recov­ery plan­ning, allow our patients to spend their time focused on get­ting well while our team han­dles the rest.

Speech Therapy

For patients who have expe­ri­enced a dimin­ished abil­i­ty to com­mu­ni­cate due to their con­di­tion, we use a vari­ety of exer­cis­es, audio­vi­su­al aids, and cut­ting-edge treat­ment pro­to­cols to empow­er our patients with speech.

Palliative Care and Hospice Services

Our pal­lia­tive care and hos­pice ser­vices are for patients suf­fer­ing from a vari­ety of chron­ic ill­ness­es, such as Alzheimer’s, can­cer, car­diac dis­ease, kid­ney fail­ure, and Parkinson’s. Patients will dis­cov­er tremen­dous sup­port as part of our pal­lia­tive care pro­gram.  It is our promise to make our patients as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble in an effort to relieve stress, pain, and ulti­mate­ly opti­mize their qual­i­ty of life. Short­ness of breath, fatigue, depres­sion, and loss of appetite can all be man­aged by our spe­cial­ists, doc­tors, and nurs­es, all of whom work col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly to build the foun­da­tion need­ed by patients and their fam­i­lies as they face chal­leng­ing med­ical issues and com­plex deci­sions. Our goal is to make our patients com­fort­able dur­ing and after treat­ment, pro­mot­ing the strength and sup­port they need for dai­ly living.

We coor­di­nate care and ser­vices with expe­ri­enced hos­pice orga­ni­za­tions to pro­vide the high­est qual­i­ty hos­pice care to our patients. Skilled and sen­si­tive hos­pice pro­fes­sion­als assist patients with phys­i­cal pain man­age­ment and address the emo­tion­al and spir­i­tu­al needs of both the patient and their family.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

For patients who are recov­er­ing from a heart attack, stroke, or deal­ing with heart dis­ease, high cho­les­terol or blood pres­sure, or any oth­er car­diac-relat­ed con­di­tions, we offer exer­cise ther­a­py and patient edu­ca­tion to pre­vent future car­diac issues and fur­ther illness.

Pain Management

We use an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach to man­ag­ing pain, always with the goal of devel­op­ing a treat­ment plan to improve qual­i­ty of life. Patients may require phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, or may ben­e­fit from mas­sage ther­a­py or men­tal health ser­vices or some­thing else. Depend­ing on the sit­u­a­tion, a num­ber of treat­ments may be considered.

Enteral Nutrition Therapy

If a patient has dif­fi­cul­ty eat­ing, food may be pro­vid­ed through a tube to ensure prop­er nour­ish­ment. Enter­al Nutri­tion Ther­a­py is appro­pri­ate for patients who can­not swal­low due to severe med­ical problems.

Wound Management

Wounds are typ­i­cal­ly cared for with prop­er dress­ing and med­ica­tion to mit­i­gate risk of infec­tion. We watch wounds close­ly and use tech­niques to expe­dite the heal­ing process if possible.

Therapeutic Recreation

At Upper East Side Reha­bil­i­ta­tion and Nurs­ing Cen­ter, we believe in the pow­er of social­iza­tion and recre­ation­al activ­i­ties as part of our efforts to restore health. Our ther­a­peu­tic recre­ation pro­gram helps our patients work on mobil­i­ty and oth­er skills out­side of their oth­er speech, phys­i­cal, or occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­py ses­sions, and it also gives them a chance to devel­op friend­ships essen­tial to feel­ing joy­ful and self-confident.

Beauty Parlor and Barber Shop

We know that it is impor­tant to feel like you are look­ing your best in order to feel your best, and we will pro­vide you with every­thing you need to do so. Our beau­ty par­lor and bar­ber shop will make you feel fresh and well-groomed dur­ing your stay with us, and you will enjoy social­iz­ing as our styl­ists pam­per you.

Pet Visitation

Your rela­tion­ship with your pet is an impor­tant one. We know that pets are fam­i­ly, and we feel strong­ly that you should be able to have time with them dur­ing your stay. We will make all accom­mo­da­tions we can to ensure that you get the time you need with your beloved animal.

Religious Services for all Denominations

We know that your faith can be a cor­ner­stone for heal­ing. Thus, we host reli­gious ser­vices on a reg­u­lar basis so that you can explore or main­tain your spir­i­tu­al­i­ty while you are with us. What­ev­er your denom­i­na­tion may be, you will dis­cov­er a won­der­ful com­mu­ni­ty of sup­port when you are with us.

I.V. Therapy

We can admin­is­ter ther­a­py intra­venous­ly, pre­vent­ing air from dilut­ing med­ica­tion as it enters the blood­stream. It is the fastest way to deliv­er impor­tant phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals to the body, and it is used for cer­tain patients as deemed appro­pri­ate by our med­ical team.


Your nutri­tion is of utmost impor­tance to us, and we believe that the expe­ri­ence of din­ing should nour­ish you on every lev­el – mind, body, and spir­it. Our chefs have a gen­uine love for fos­ter­ing a cul­ture of com­mu­ni­ty through food, and their tremen­dous culi­nary exper­tise will leave you feel­ing healthy and happy.

Family and Friends Transport Program

Your time with your fam­i­ly and friends is a big part of your reha­bil­i­ta­tion jour­ney. Our goal is to build that time into your day when­ev­er pos­si­ble. To that end, we have devel­oped a Fam­i­ly and Friends Trans­port Pro­gram, allow­ing your guests an easy way to vis­it. You pro­vide us with a time and day for their vis­it, and we will pro­vide you with the accom­mo­da­tions you need to get them here.

Trips and Entertainment

Part of the renew­al com­po­nent of your stay with us is embrac­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to have some fun and enjoy new things. That said, you will have a vari­ety of day excur­sions and enter­tain­ment options both onsite and off­site from which to choose, all designed to help you live well and laugh often while you are healing.

Geriatric Care Management

Our Geri­atric Care Man­agers will offer you and your fam­i­ly a col­lab­o­ra­tive approach to long-term care. They will work with you, and those you love, to pro­vide the edu­ca­tion and resources required to help you live your best life as you age. We believe that by work­ing as a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary team, and com­mu­ni­cat­ing reg­u­lar­ly with your fam­i­ly, you will enjoy the qual­i­ty of life that we all want for our­selves and for those we cherish.

What Others Say About Us

I was here for 8 weeks with a bro­ken hip and my time at the Upper East Side Reha­bil­i­ta­tion and Nurs­ing Cen­ter was won­der­ful. The staff is hard work­ing are a bunch of good willed peo­ple with good inten­tions. They work as a team and make good things hap­pen because they want to make it hap­pen. The rehab is excel­lent and by far the best part of this estab­lish­ment. My favorite activ­i­ty is walk­ing on Park Avenue and I’m so glad I’ll be able to do that again. A spe­cial thank you to some of the rehab staff that helped me: Frank, Welling­ton, Sil­vio, Christi­na and Bessie

Marie K.

I get con­stant, pleas­ant atten­tion here in UES! The help comes into the room for me before I even call, com­ing in to make sure I’m com­fort­able. My rehab ther­a­pists are so car­ing and help­ful and the doc­tors and nurs­es are always around check­ing into my sit­u­a­tion. They had sono­gram and oth­er portable machines able to come to me here in the build­ing, sav­ing me a trip to the test site when I need it. Every­thing kept clean and tidy in the room and hall­ways as well. So hap­py I came to this rehab!


The friend­li­ness and the help­ful­ness of aides and rehab staff was amaz­ing. I felt like I knew them for years. I was in anoth­er nurs­ing home that was sup­pos­ed­ly 5 star, and did not com­pare to what I got here. Thank you all.


I gave a five star rat­ing because I came in with an idea of what this place would be, which was like kind of like a nurs­ing home. So hap­py I was wrong. These peo­ple real­ly doing a great job for me. Rehab has been great and my ther­a­pist and me have made great progress! The halls are real­ly nice. When I first arrived, I was so anx­ious. Now I’m sure I made the right choice. So hap­py with this place.
