Bringing Sunshine to People’s Lives Since 1949
Sunshine Health Facilities began in 1949 as the vision of Ellen C. Craig — a woman who cared deeply for people and wanted to provide a safe, loving environment when they were no longer able to live on their own.
Sharing Ellen’s vision, the next generation of her family joined in the mission to enrich the lives of people who are advanced in years or who need assistance due to illness, injury, or a medical condition. Ellen’s vision eventually became Sunshine Health Facilities. Sunshine Health Facilities is still owned by Ellen's family who continue to further Ellen’s vision for helping to improve the health and wellness of those in need.
Today, Sunshine Health Facilities is known as a trusted provider of home health, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, senior housing, memory care, and inpatient behavioral health treatment. In Spokane, Liberty Lake, and other neighboring communities, Sunshine Health Facilities has an exceptional reputation for care. Our goal is to ensure we treat everyone in our care with respect and dignity. Whether you’re looking for a place for a mother, father, or another loved one, Sunshine Health Facilities is the trusted choice.
A Patient-Centered Approach to Treatment
Sunshine Home Health, Sunshine Health & Rehab, Sunshine Adult Family Homes, Sunshine Memory Care, and Sunshine Terrace all believe and function under a term called “person or patient-centered care.” Patient-centered care focuses on the patient and their well-being versus being focused solely on a diagnosis. This type of care reflects an individual’s unique preferences, values, and needs and is a partnership between patients and their caregivers, medical staff, and physicians. When you are a patient or resident at Sunshine Health Facilities, you are our primary focus.
Sunshine received the American Health Care Association’s Bronze Award — Commitment to Quality Award — which recognizes that the provider has developed a foundation to begin a journey of continuous quality improvement. All of us at Sunshine Terrace are committed to the highest standard of quality care, and this process has laid down a foundation for us to be able to provide an even higher standard in care delivery.
It is the mission of Sunshine Health Facilities to provide quality housing and medical services to the community in a caring, efficient, and effective way. Our goal is to provide individualized services (life enrichment) in the appropriate setting to maximize the person’s independence and help them achieve and maintain their maximum potential (wellness lifestyle.)
