San Diego Skilled Nursing
Providing compassionate short- and long-term care for your loved one.
At Sharp HealthCare, we understand how important it is to help each of our patients retain the highest level of independence. If your loved one requires a higher level of care than can be provided at home — but does not require hospitalization — we can help.
Find the around-the-clock support you need.
You can have peace of mind knowing your loved one is in good hands at Sharp. Our skilled nursing services support many conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, recuperating from surgery, rehabilitation and stroke.
We focus not only on patients’ physical health, but we also are dedicated to caring for their social, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our commitment to quality care has been recognized as among the best in Southern California.

Rehabilitation and recuperation
At Sharp, we are committed to helping patients achieve their highest possible level of functional independence and enhancing their quality of life.
A wide variety of rehabilitation therapies are available to patients with impaired functional abilities due to stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury or other neurological conditions. Those with disabling conditions, including amputation, severe arthritis and those caused by orthopedic or cardiac conditions also have access to our highly qualified physical, speech and occupational therapists.
Many patients who have undergone surgery may no longer require acute hospital care but are not yet ready to return home. They are medically stable, but require more services than can be provided through home health care. A skilled nursing facility can provide these individuals with the specialized recuperative care they need and improve their transition from surgery to home. This level of care is appropriate for patients recovering from procedures such as hip replacement, tracheostomy or other post-surgical needs.
