Long-Term Skilled Nursing Facility

Our Community Has Everything You Need

When you are choosing a skilled nursing provider, what is important to you? It is our job at Gurwin to make sure we provide a community to exceed all expectations and deliver everything you need. The best way to learn about us is to schedule a tour.

What sets our skilled nursing community apart from others on Long Island is our ability to provide for most of our residents’ needs “in house.” This is an important distinction – it means you can be cared for right at Gurwin, without needing to go offsite to handle routine needs such as dentistry, ophthalmology, specialty physician services, x-rays and dialysis.

Our skilled nursing pavilion has 460 beds, providing long- and short-term care . Besides short-term rehabilitation, we provide sub-acute medical and post-surgical care including: IV infusion therapy, wound care, parenteral nutrition, and renal and peritoneal dialysis.

In addition to outstanding medical care, our community offers many other perks that make our residents’ lives even more comfortable and enjoyable: Our beauty salon keeps our residents looking their best; we have a well-stocked gift shop; three beautifully-landscaped patios are available for enjoying the outdoors; and an on-site synagogue.

Our 36-acre Gurwin campus is a Life Plan Community, designed to enable residents transition comfortably over the years, aging in place as their medical needs change. In addition to an impressive nursing & rehabilitation facility, Gurwin also offers independent living for active older adults at Fountaingate Gardens,  assisted living and memory care at our Gurwin Jewish ~ Fay J. Lindner Residences, social model and medical adult day health programhome careon-site dialysis, and palliative and hospice care.

Frequently Asked Questions: Long Term Nursing Care in New York

How does one get admitted to Gurwin?

For long-term nursing care admissions, Gurwin needs a Patient Review Instrument (PRI) from the hospital/nursing home in which the resident is currently being treated. The PRI is like a medical resume. Gurwin looks at this information to be sure we can adequately meet the resident’s needs, and also to be sure that the resident is appropriate for Gurwin. The PRI should be faxed by the hospital/nursing home to the admissions office for review at (631) 715-2905.

How will the family get to know the staff?

The resident/family will be introduced to the various members of the care team. Two weeks into the stay, long-term skilled nursing family members and residents will be invited to a Care Plan Meeting, where the resident’s needs are discussed, as well as the plan of care that has been developed. Thereafter, the resident/family will be invited to Care Plan Meetings regularly, and/or if there is a significant change in resident’s condition.


Under the federal Older Americans Act, every state is required to have an Ombudsman program that addresses complaints and advocates on behalf of residents.  Learn more about the NYS Ombudsman Program at www.ltcombudsman.ny.gov.
