Dry Harbor is a family owned and operated healthcare center, located in Queens on the border of Long Island. Dry Harbor is a modern, state-of-the-art facility, employing cutting edge therapeutic techniques and care modalities. Our 360 bed facility includes a 120 bed short-term rehab pavilion, a self-contained unit with completely separate dining and therapy areas. Our high standard of care and professionalism notwithstanding, the warm and friendly environment at Dry Harbor is more reminiscent of an extended family. The renowned Dry Harbor staff is carefully selected not only for their care giving skills but for their compassion and empathetic natures as well.

At Dry Harbor, we believe that a pleasant experience and peace of mind are conducive to healing and thriving. That is why we place great emphasis on providing beautiful surroundings, fine dining and amenities, and engaging recreational programs. Individuality is a hallmark of Dry Harbor. We recognize that each patient is different, not only medically but also emotionally, socially and spiritually. We strive to treat each individual according to his own unique requirements. Perhaps most importantly, we treat every single patient with dignity, respect, and compassion.

At Dry Harbor, we have a refreshing view on long-term care. We sincerely believe that seniors who need medical and living assistance can still thrive and achieve a better quality of life, perhaps even developing interests and skills they never had before!

The Dry Harbor therapy team, including physical, occupational, and speech therapists, is goal-oriented. As part of Dry Harbor's fast track approach, each patient is assessed immediately upon admission, so that the therapy regimen can begin as soon as possible. Additionally, Dry Harbor offers therapy 7 days a week to help accelerate patient's discharge to home.

    My wife was discharged in May after a very pleasant and beneficial stay at Dry Harbor Nursing and Rehabilitation center. It was certainly a true "Care with a Smile" experience. Your professional staff and skilled nursing department and especially your Rehabilitation staff are first class and know what each resident requires. In addition your food services are to be complimented. I am a life Member of the American Legion, Jewish War Veterans and Knights of Pythons as well as senior Citizens Branch in Queens and I will gladly recommend your facility to every member who may require your services."

    "Dear Executive Administrator,

    My father was a resident at Dry Harbor Nursing and Rehabilitation center this spring, recovering from double by-pass surgery. I would like to thank Angelo Crimeni and his staff of therapists who were very kind and professional. With their help my dad was able to regain normality in his daily life.

    Thank to the entire third floor nursing staff that make sure my dad was stimulated in the early stages when he could not do much. I was always greeted with a smile by the receptionist and the social service department provided kind words and encouragement. I would like to thank Brenda Farley LPN, the HMO coordinator whose kind demeanor and openness really made me feel confident in choosing Dry Harbor. In closing, it is the people who work in you building that make your center the caring and healing place it is."

    "My mother has recently been admitted to your rehabilitation program after a knee replacement surgery in a local hospital, our family is very involved and extremely pleased. But I would like to thank you for something most people don't pick up and those due probably don't thank for. The use of quality brand products from the Proctor and Gamble diapers to the Georgia Pacific whips, being an institutional sales man in Pennsylvania , I know of the imported brands institutions like your are using and the negative effect it has on the residents. Although its pricy I want you to know it doesn't go unnoticed and I want to thank you for your true "Quality of Care".

    Keep up your good work."

    My father resided at Dry Harbor Nursing Home for three years. The nursing home made me feel comfortable and the staff was always accessible. Both my father and I enjoyed use of your concourses level and the entertainment programs provided which enhanced my father's quality of life. As his illness progressed he felt comfortable and safe remaining on his unit due to the care and concern provided by the staff. I knew he was cared for and groomed daily and his clinical needs were addressed. The staff would work with me and informed me as to his needs and comforts which gave me peace of mind. I wish to thank you all at Dry Harbor Nursing Home for caring for my father these past three years."
