Amsterdam Nursing Home is a 409 bed skilled nursing facility situated on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, near Columbia University.
Our facility is known as a center of excellence – providing short term rehabilitation as well as long term care. Affiliations with NewYork-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical School, Hospital for Special Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Palliative Care Program, and Visiting Nurse Service of New York Hospice enable us to provide the highest quality of clinical care in a most compassionate manner.
Clinical needs and leisure time pursuits are considered to be equal in importance to each resident's well-being. This philosophy is evident throughout Amsterdam. Interdisciplinary teams that include attending physicians, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, licensed professional nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers and therapeutic recreational therapists work together to coordinate, design and deliver individualized world class care and treatment.
"Our staff takes immense pride in delivering the highest quality of care in a gracious environment, promoting respect and dignity for each resident."
- Judith Fenster, Senior Vice President & Administrator
