Short-term Rehabilitation

At The Sequoias Portola Valley we offer Short-term Rehab to our residents and community residents. Short-term Rehab is a critical part of recovering and developing independence after a stay in an acute hospital. We serve those in need of rehabilitation so they can get back to living independently as soon as possible. We also offer Short-term Rehab at The Sequoias San Francisco and The Tamalpais Marin.

We know the importance of communication between our team and your physician. This process, known as the transitional care model, can help make the rehabilitation process successful.


Short-term Rehab offers comprehensive medical rehabilitation from our on-site physicians, licensed nurses and physical, occupational, and speech therapists. We have highly trained, experienced staff and the facilities needed to enable our patients to reach their highest level of recovery. We also offer this service at The Sequoias San Francisco and The Tamalpais Marin.


To qualify for temporary residency and rehabilitation you must:

  • Be insured through traditional Medicare A, or a contracted HMO/PPO/Medicare Advantage plan
  • Have a three-day qualifying stay in an acute hospital
  • Require daily skilled nursing services or oversight from a licensed nurse or therapist
  • Be able to participate in treatment and make measurable progress during the course of care
  • Have a solid discharge plan and arrangements for post-treatment care
