Skilled Nursing Community

Our beautiful community and caring staff create a comfortable home for residents, but as importantly, our facilities are unlike those at any other skilled nursing community on Long Island. A full medical clinic, including dental, ophthalmology and radiology suites, as well as a 12-station dialysis center, and on-site physicians and social workers, are just some of the services and clinical professionals that are available to help residents enjoy life at Gurwin. Everything they need for health and well-being is readily available in our state-of-the-art skilled nursing center.

Skilled Nursing Staff

Gurwin has been providing outstanding nursing care for more than three decades. We provide expertise that other communities may not offer, including a full time medical director, board-certified geriatricians, a licensed social worker on each floor, full-time respiratory therapists, and scores of specialists who provide services to our residents in our on-site clinic.  In addition, we are fortunate to have dedicated community volunteers who donate their time and talents to enhance the lives of our residents.

Skilled Nursing Services

All of our nursing services and programs are provided with a combination of clinical excellence and old-fashioned caring, warmth and respect. Gurwin has developed award-winning programs that have been adopted by other skilled nursing communities, and each staff member shares one mission:  caring for our residents as if they are our own family members.

Frequently Asked Questions: Long Term Skilled Nursing in New York

What medical services are available for long-term skilled nursing residents?

Gurwin has physicians on staff, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Medical coverage is extended into the early evening and weekends by either a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, with a physician on call. In addition, there are a variety of consultants in our on-site clinic, so residents are able to access healthcare services such as optometry, dental, audiology, x-ray and a variety of other specialties through consulting physicians -- without ever leaving our community. Should a visit to a specialist in the community be required, it can be facilitated through the attending physician here at Gurwin.

If a resident needs to go to the hospital, where do they go?

If it is a scheduled need, most long-term skilled nursing residents go to Huntington Hospital, although other arrangements may be made after consultation with the resident and/or family. If there is a need to call 9-1-1, state law mandates the resident be taken to the closest hospital, which is St. Catherine of Siena in Smithtown, part of the Catholic Health System.
