Sun Healthcare Group (SUNH) is one of the larger nursing home companies in the U.S. with inpatient facilities in 25 states with over 23,000 beds. Based out of Irvine, California, this major conglomerate has several units and subdivision that range from behavioral health to hospice care and medical staffing. The company is reportedly to be acquired by Genesis Healthcare in 2012.
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
- Behavioral Health
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.
