Re-hang/frame a door in with a brick surrond


Hello all!

So, I live in a self managed condo building and I like to DIY most of the repairs for the building, but this latest one is stumbling me a bit.

The door to our building opens outward, is a heavy steel door, and the hinges are pulling out of the wood.
I tried to use longer screws to attach the hinges into the stud.... then found out there is no stud on the otherside. Its Brick!

So, how should I proceed to re-hang this door? I would like to keep the same frame and door-- although it looks really ugly it is strong and functions fine.
Thanks!
