VillageCare Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a state-of-the-art rehabilitation center. Designed not as an end-point facility, but rather a place where patients receive rehabilitation and recovery care to prepare them to return home, this modern center promotes efficient and effective delivery of rehabilitation services, respecting individual privacy and dignity.
VillageCare Rehabilitation is a community-based, not-for-profit organization serving people with chronic care needs, as well as seniors and individuals in need of continuing care and rehabilitation services.
Our mission is to promote healing, better health and well-being to the fullest extent possible. Our care is offered through a comprehensive array of community and residential programs, as well as managed care. VillageCare has provided health care services to individuals residing within New York City for over 40 years.
VillageCare is a pioneering and innovative continuing care organization that offers post-acute care, community services and managed care options to people living in New York City. We strive to understand the current state of need of those we serve and pursue appropriate responses.
Recognizing and supporting self-directed, interactive care enables the people we serve to control aspects of their own care and help them to maintain their independence.
For over 40 years, we have continually reached out to hard-to-serve, vulnerable and marginalized populations who may not have had adequate access to quality health care and rehabilitative services.

VillageCare began in 1977 as a project by community volunteers to rescue and reorganize a for-profit nursing home slated for closure. It has become a much larger organization that provides post-acute care, community-based services and managed long-term care. As a result of this history, VillageCare has become a valued resource for the people we serve, their caregivers and other provider organizations with which we partner.
VillageCare staff have extensive knowledge and experience in offering and coordinating care services that are recognized for high quality, as well as excellent outcomes and exceptional customer satisfaction by, among others, the New York State Department of Health and the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). These programs include VillageCare Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and community-based services such as an Adult Day Health Care program, VillageCare at 46 and Ten Medicaid Assisted Living Program, and an Adult Protective Services contract with the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA).
In addition, VillageCareMAX offers a Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care Plan (MLTC), as well as two plans for individuals that are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
