A stay at Sunnyvale Post-Acute begins with an evaluation by our team of physicians, therapists, nurses, social services, and other support staff. These meetings allow us to design a personalized care plan focused on returning you to your highest level of independence as quickly as possible.

Our expansive therapy gym and rehab suites offer a unique and personalized experience for patients recovering from strokes, neurological impairments, and orthopedic procedures. Rehabilitation takes place in our fully equipped therapy gym under the guidance of experienced professional therapists.
