The Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation welcomed a visit from NYC Council Member Eric Dinowitz on Tuesday, March 12. He toured the facility and learned about our comprehensive skilled nursing and rehabilitation services. Next, he had the opportunity to interact with a group of short-term patients and long-term residents who were excited to meet their representative. He also joined one of our popular activities, Cooking Club, where the month’s feature was making Irish soda bread.

This 16-chair state-of-the-art facility serves the Methodist Home community Monday to Saturday, and outpatient services are also available.

During his visit, he also met with Maria Perez, our CEO and Administrator, where they discussed the 2024 governor’s budget and its effects on the nursing home industry.

“I had the great pleasure of touring the Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation. In my visit, I saw a community filled with lively and kindred individuals, well-supported by a capable staff. Centers that look after our older adults and those that need specialized care, such as the Methodist Home, are fundamental in our community’s work to uplift our older adults and preserve their dignity in the way they deserve. I commend the Methodist Home for the essential work that they do and support them in their endeavors,” said Dinowitz.
