Kathy Shanahan holds a Bachelor of Science degree from San Jose State University in Occupational Therapy and has been in the therapy profession for 30 years. Ms. Shanahan has worked in many settings as an O.T. from psychiatric work at Valley Medical Center to work with quadriplegics at Long Beach Veteran’s Hospital and in many of the local skilled nursing facilities in the San Jose area. She started as the Rehab Director at Pacific Hills in 2001 and the once small Department has grown under her leadership to over 12 therapists who possess excellent clinical skills and produce the best of outcomes for our patients, no matter what their diagnoses and challenges may be. Our rehab department has the unique distinction of successfully returning most of our patients back into the community to resume their lives in their homes with family.
