Sea View Hospital and Rehabilitation Center and Home is a 304-bed long term care facility located in Staten Island's lush Greenbelt. Serving the metropolitan area, it is easily accessible from all points by car and bus. Like many HHC facilities, Sea View has a long history. It opened its doors in 1913 as a sanitarium treating individuals suffering from the most feared disease of the time, tuberculosis. It was at Sea View, 39 years later, that physicians developed the drug that would ultimately cure the disease.
Sea View continues to serve vulnerable populations. Today, the hospital is well-known for its long-term care brain injury unit, the first in New York State. Patients undergo intensive rehabilitation with the goals of restoring motor and cognitive functions and maximizing quality of life.
Sea View's unit for individuals afflicted by Alzheimer's and related dementias provides purposeful activity, consistency and structure, personalized treatment plans and a multi-disciplinary team approach.
Residents and Adult Day Health Care clients have access to Sea View's specialty clinics and Sea View's rehabilitation department offers a variety of physical, occupational, speech and hearing therapies.
Residents and clients enjoy many interesting activities and ongoing special interest programs, such as the Sea View drama club, the gourmet cooking group and horticultural programs in the therapeutic greenhouse. Sea View also hooks up seniors and the disabled who live at home with its Voice Care Program, a 24 hour emergency response system.
