NYU Langone Medical Center announced that Rusk Rehabilitation non-musculoskeletal outpatient rehabilitation care, research and administrative offices have moved to a 40,000 square-foot space in NYU Langone’s new Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) located at 240 East 38th Street in Manhattan.  

“Having our outpatient services in this space reflects the medical center’s focus on providing convenient ambulatory services for our community – while giving our staff a new environment that mirrors the world-class care they are known for providing,” said Steven R. Flanagan, MD, the Howard A. Rusk Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine and chair, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center.

Rusk Rehabilitation services at the new facility include non-musculoskeletal physical and occupational therapies, women’s health rehabilitation, speech-language pathology, swallowing therapy, psychology, vocational rehabilitation, vestibular therapy, the Brain Injury Day Treatment Program, social work and cardiac rehabilitation. In addition, administration, education and research offices will also be located at ACC.

In-patient rehabilitation therapy will continue at the Rusk Institute on 34th Street. Rusk outpatient rehabilitation services for sports medicine and joint, muscle and tendon conditions are provided at NYU Langone’s new Center for Musculoskeletal Care at 333 East 38th Street. 

Approximately 54 million people in the U.S. have some type of disability, which may include physical, sensory, mental, and self-care impairments ranging from mild to severe – all of which often requires some form of rehabilitation therapy to achieve or maintain a quality of life for patients.  

The Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Medical Center was founded in the world’s first university-affiliated facility devoted entirely to rehabilitation medicine, and has been voted the best rehabilitation hospital in New York and among the top ten in the country by U.S. News & World Report for the last 22 years.  More information may be found at Rusk Rehabilitation.
