Sea View Hospital and Rehabilitation Center and Home is a 304-bed long-term care facility located in Staten Island’s lush Greenbelt. Sea View is a public hospital and a member of the NYC Health and Hospital Corporation (HHC) that opened in 1913 as a sanitarium treating individuals suffering from tuberculosis. It was at Sea View, 39 years later, that physicians developed the drug that would ultimately cure the disease. Today, Sea View 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 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. Clients also have access to Sea View’s specialty clinics and to the variety of physical, occupational, speech, and hearing therapies offered by Sea View’s rehabilitation department.nyc.gov/html/hhc/seaview/home.html
