Nursing Services

Sunnyvale is committed to providing industry leading care to each of its residents and has instituted innovative programs to care for their needs. Specifically, Sunnyvale has invested in a respiratory therapist and instituted its own respiratory program catered towards the large populace of respiratory patients. Sunnyvale is also the only provider of peritoneal dialysis in Northern California.

Sunnyvale has instituted a High-Frequency Rounding Model in our facility which entails a physician, Dr. Matthew Gillett, rounding in the facility 3-4 times per week on each of our short-term residents. The physician also oversees a physician’s assistant that is present in the facility on a daily basis with the intention of spotting signs and symptoms of deterioration earlier to adequately adjust the care and avoid readmission to the acute hospital.

The following skilled nursing services are available at Sunnyvale Post-Acute Center:
