About Sierracare

Sierracare is California’s premier subacute care facility. We are a 24-hour congregate living health facility (CLHF) featuring one-on-one personalized nursing and recuperative treatments for patients suffering with spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury (TBI), neuromuscular conditions, congenital conditions, or other medically complex injuries. Our physicians are at the leading edge of critical care, catastrophic injury, and rehabilitation medicine. Working together with our industry leading healthcare professionals — which include neuropsychological specialists, nurses, therapists, social workers, activity directors, respiratory therapists, and dietitians — the Sierracare team assures that your loved one receives all the personalized treatment and critical day-to-day care that they need to make an optimum recovery.

In addition to providing advanced subacute care treatments and rehabilitation, at Sierracare we also work especially hard to create an encouraging and emotionally supportive living environment to foster the optimum conditions needed for maximum recovery.

Exceptional Care

The healthcare team at Sierracare is comprised of only the most exceptionally well trained, highly skilled, experienced, and genuinely caring individuals — human beings with a true passion for helping their fellow human beings during a time of need, and with the skills to do it correctly.

Unequalled Service

Every patient at Sierracare becomes a part of the Sierracare family, which means not only do they receive all the needed physical care and treatments they require, but also all the love, understanding, and emotional caring that every human being needs during a challenging time.

In a Serene Setting

Sierracare is a beautiful lakeside retreat nestled in the tranquil central valley foothills of Tulare County, California. Fully remodeled to include every convenience, we provide a peaceful and picturesque home-away-from-home to help optimize healing.
