Hebrew Rehabilitation Center

Personalized care in a homelike setting.

For more than 100 years, Boston-area seniors and families have turned to Hebrew Rehabilitation Center for geriatric health care, including short-term and long-term inpatient care.

If you or your loved one is discharged from the hospital but isn’t ready to go home, you can trust Hebrew Rehabilitation Center to provide skilled care and support in the days and weeks following an illness or surgery.

And if your loved one requires more care than can be safely provided at home, our long-term chronic care provides person-centered extended medical care. We also offer specialized care for those with memory loss.

All patients at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center receive care delivered by a team of skilled professionals, including Harvard Medical School-affiliated doctors, nurses, and therapists.

Long-Term Chronic Care vs. Nursing Home Care

Because of Hebrew Rehabilitation Center’s long-term chronic care hospital license, we can offer medical services traditional nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities can’t, including:

  • Our own Harvard Medical School-affiliated geriatric specialists
  • Extensive rehab therapies including physical, occupational, and expressive therapies
  • On-site lab, pharmacy, and radiology services

It’s a testament to our reputation for high-quality care that the region’s finest hospitals, including Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and New England Baptist Hospital, choose to refer patients to us.
