Information On Sun Healthcare Nursing Homes

Sun Healthcare Group (SUNH)Picture-65 is one of the larger nursing home companies in the U.S. with inpatient facilities in 25 states with over 23,000 beds.

Sun Healthcare has 199 locations operating under SunBridge Healthcare. Most of these locations are either in the western states or the mid eastern region of the county. Western states include their home state of California and the surrounding states of Washington, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico and Colorado. The eastern states include Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Florida, Connecticut, Indiana, Maryland and Massachusetts.

Inspections Records From Facilities

Sun Healthcare facilities are not ranked well within the Medicare system. A random selection of 3 facilities in Kentucky brought up two with the lowest rating, 1 star, and 1 with an average rating of 3 stars. Three random selections in California brought up 1 average rating and 2 below average ratings.

Services Offered To Patients

Nursing homes or long-term care are the bread and butter of the Sun Healthcare Group.  They do however have other types of facilities and subsidiaries:

  • Independent Living
  • Rehabilitation
  • Behavioral Health
  • Hospice

Lawsuits Against Sun Healthcare

Sun Healthcare has had its share of lawsuits and being bought by Genesis in 2012 is apparently not helping matters. An investigation is being performed on behalf of Sun Healthcare stockholders due to the terms of the sale. Back in 2010, a Kentucky court awarded a plaintiff $42.75 million in a wrongful death case against Sun Healthcare.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
