COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) Prevention Efforts

While Sunrise at East 56th does not open its doors until later this year, we are being prudent in our actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by continued, extensive cleaning of our Discovery Center on East 57th Street. The center is temporarily closed, but our team is always available at 888.312.2414.

We look forward to the opportunity to share more about the high standard of senior living offered at Sunrise at East 56th.
