Welcome to San Fernando Post Acute Hospital!
Unique is the perfect word to describe our facility. San Fernando Post Acute Hospital is a 204 bed skilled nursing facility, contracted by the State of California, to provide sub-acute services to a 59 bed dedicated unit within our facility. This dual classification allows us to meet the individual needs of a more diverse population.
For those unfamiliar with a sub-acute level of care, the main difference between skilled nursing care and sub-acute care is the highly specialized services demanded by the resident with sub-acute needs. Residents in our sub-acute unit traditionally require artificial respiration through the use of a ventilator, often times have significant sound care needs, and are prone to infections due to the contributing medical problems associated with their condition. At San Fernando Post Acute Hospital we understand these issues and, as such, maintain a team of professional staff that include: consulting Pulmonologists, on-site Registered Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, Licensed Nurses trained in respiratory care, and a full-time LVN trained in infection control.
We hope that you will be interested in our facility and the many services available to meet the needs of your loved one. Please stop by to tour the facility or give us a call to answer any questions you may have.
