The Methodist Home Introduces Multi-Million Dollar Renovation To Expand Short-Term Rehabilitation Services

Private Room Every Patient

Riverdale, New York, August 24, 2020 – The historic Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation has invested in a full-scale renovation and is now the premier short-term rehabilitation skilled nursing facility in the Bronx.

Prior to the pandemic lockdown, The Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation was in the midst of a rebirth. Their historic building located at 4499 Manhattan College Parkway which has been their home since 1929, was undergoing comprehensive renovations. Maria Perez, CEO and Administrator, said of the project, “I’m so proud that our team at The Methodist Home has always been state-of-the-art in terms of patient care. And now, with this renovation, our physical facility matches that same level of excellence.”

At the conclusion of the renovation, the Methodist Home will offer three full floors with private residential rooms, for short-term rehabilitation patients needing therapy or nursing services after surgery or illness. The Methodist Home is the premier skilled nursing facility for patients in need of subacute medical care following hospitalization. As patients prepare to return to their homes, one element of their therapy program will take place in the Activities of Daily Living Suite, which replicates a standard home environment. Outpatient therapy services such as physical therapy, speech therapy, and a stroke program are also available. The facility also features a floor of rooms for patients needing long-term care.

The Methodist Home understands the importance of cleanliness and safety procedures to protect all its residents. Due to the pandemic, these issues are more magnified than ever, and the Methodist Home is proud to have been one of the first nursing homes in New York to meet all Health Department criteria to restart visitation after the surge of cases in New York declined. As part of their commitment to safety and to create a more restful experience for their patients, each resident’s room is private with a private bathroom.


The Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation is a skilled nursing facility located in Riverdale, New York. Founded in 1850, they offer short-term rehabilitation, outpatient therapy, and long-term care options in their newly renovated facility. Methodist Home is a highly-rated, non-profit, and non-sectarian organization that strives to provide the highest level of care to all patients.
