One of the main reasons people choose Sagewood is the continuum of care available on campus. They know they can get the care they need on-site at Acacia Health Center, including short- and long-term skilled nursing care and rehabilitation therapies.

Independent living residents at Sagewood can also take comfort in our LifeCare® plan, which assures them unlimited days of care, including assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing, for virtually the same monthly fee as their independent living monthly fee.

The quality of our care is reflected by our 5-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. It’s a level of care we’re committed to delivering every day.

Visit Acacia Health Center, our beautifully designed senior health center in Phoenix, AZ, and you’ll discover the perfect setting for healing and happiness. Residents enjoy restaurant-style meals, along with social, cultural, and recreational activities tailored to their interests and abilities. Almost all suites are private, and we offer private family suites for visiting, plus outdoor spaces where you can enjoy the sunshine, sit in quiet contemplation, or chat with friends.

Resident Testimonial 

This letter is filled with emotion and thanks to you, your effective leadership, and the Acacia staff for helping me recover. Please share my thank you with the Acacia-ites!

  • Nursing: Each nurse was caring, fun, professional and knowledgeable.
  • CNAs: The CNAs reminded me of the following through their actions: life can be fun even when facing challenges, patience is rewarded, laughter is healing, the treatment of others can be best accomplished with dignity and compassion, and teamwork best serves others!
  • Therapy: All the therapists I had were the A-Team!
  • Activities: The activities directors welcomed each day and me with glee. I was reminded that two people can make the lives of others better.
  • Doctors: Each morning check-up were educational, personal, and caring.
  • Administration: Thank you for being a liaison for insurance conversations and continually being a patient advocate.
  • Cleaning: My room was always clean and the visits were so positive.

Very Sincerely – Kiki (Elaine Whissen)


Exciting announcement from our Administrator –
Our team at Acacia is proud to announce that we have received a deficiency-free survey
by the Arizona Department of Health Services, Bureau of Long-Term Care Licensing.
Receiving a deficiency-free survey is the highest honor, allowing us to maintain our CMS 5-star
rating and is achieved by fewer than 1 in 10 nursing facilities nationwide.
The annual inspections are unannounced and look through every department. The policies and procedures
include nursing, facilities, activities, human resources, dietary and social services. They review active charts,
closed charts, interview families/residents, quality measures, environment review, kitchens, personnel files, education
compliance and watch for incontinence care, treatments, medication passes, etc. Our medication error rate was perfect at 0%.
The survey results truly are a testament to Acacia’s dedication to provide the highest quality person-centered care.
Our dedicated, exemplary staff works hard every day to provide care with professionalism and dignity to all our Acacia residents.
— Misti Valentino, Acacia Health Center Administrator
