Welcome to Gurwin!
In 1988, we realized our dream to build a nursing care facility which would provide the ultimate in quality care for our parents and grandparents. Our Board of Directors mandated that we take a leadership role, be at the forefront of creativity and innovation, and set the standard for all facilities of our kind. In doing so, we have expanded from our original vision of a community nursing home and have created a full continuum of care, including a world-class nursing and rehabilitation center, a renowned assisted living community, outstanding home care programs and an exceptional adult day health program.
We are committed to the art of caring, providing trust and comfort to those who place their loved ones in our hands. Our outstanding staff provides the highest quality care and constantly demonstrates compassion for each of our residents, hospice patients, adult day health program participants, home care patients and assisted living residents. Every staff member is imbued with a commitment to treat our residents as if they were their very own family member, and that feeling of genuine caring is part of what makes Gurwin unique.
We are dedicated to the science of care, where our clinical excellence and state-of-the-art facilities have cemented our reputation as the facility of choice in the New York area. Our ventilator-dependent unit is home to 28 residents with complex clinical needs, and our superior facilities make it possible for us to provide the highest quality sub-acute care. We offer on-site dialysis, enabling us to treat those in need of dialysis right here at Gurwin, and our Palliative Care Center will open shortly.
While our main focus day to day is those entrusted in our care, we never lose sight of our long-range vision. Recently, we began marketing our new independent living community, Fountaingate Gardens, which will be built on land we purchased contiguous to our assisted living residences. This will complete our full continuum of care for Long Island seniors. Our commitment to the future is evident in our plans to create an education and research center, and in the more than 40 active clinical affiliations with colleges, universities, medical schools and physician residency programs, through which we train future professionals in all disciplines.
