News – Country Bank Presents Faces of Burke Photo Exhibit (2017)
We are proud to present "Faces of Burke," a traveling photography exhibit designed to showcase the individuality and courage of patients of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, a not-for-profit, acute rehabilitation hospital in White Plains offering both inpatient and outpatient programs for those who have experienced a disabling illness, traumatic injury or surgery.
The compelling photographs, taken by Tarrytown-based photographer Jesse Rinka, and stories of the subjects illustrate a diverse and inspiring group of patients who have succeeded in regaining mobility and independence through their experience at Burke. The photo gallery also features portraits of four additional Burke patients, along with their riveting stories:
- Max—From amputee to resuming motocross competitions
- Barbara—From orthopedic surgery to hiking the Mount Everest trail
- Ronald—From a debilitating heart attack to performing surgery again
- Susan—From traumatic brain injury to living independently once more
"Burke's mission is to help patients achieve their highest level of independence and get back to the lives they love. We are grateful to Country Bank and to the Murphy family. Because of their philanthropy, we can showcase the individuality of these patients and the lives they are now able to lead," said Richard Sgaglio, Ph.D., Senior Administrator at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital.
