Each short term patient’s needs during a skilled nursing facility rehab stay are different, but one thing they all have in common is the need for multiple services and providers to help them regain the strength and independence they need to return home.
Short stay rehab patients who recover at the Methodist Home appreciate the convenience of being able to receive multiple services within one skilled nursing facility, greatly reducing the stress involved with visiting multiple providers around the New York City area.

Area Medical Partners
We are connected to the Northwell Health TeleSNF Program which offers our nursing team after-hours access to critical care physicians. This technology allows providers to evaluate, monitor, and treat patients via a video conference, often preventing an urgent patient transfer to the hospital.
Our Medical Director is geriatrician Dr. Paul Cavaluzzi. We also work closely with Montefiore Medical Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Jansen Hospice & Palliative Care, Allcare Orthotic & Prosthetic Services, Language Fundamentals, and other local providers as patient needs arise.
Patients Appreciate Comprehensive Care at the Methodist Home
The variety of in-house services offered in our rehabilitation center, plus the coordination of care with area medical providers, offer our short term rehab patients comfort and convenience during their recovery.
Recovering from an illness, injury, surgery, or another medical event in a skilled nursing facility can be stressful and overwhelming, especially during the past few years due to the global pandemic. At the Methodist Home, we strive to offer any services our patients need within our facility when possible.
