Trust the Health Care Center to offer the right balance of care, cleanliness and comfort for your loved ones

When a loved one requires skilled nursing care, he or she deserves a clean and comfortable environment filled with caregivers who understand the long-term, multilevel care needs of older adults. That’s why compassion and engagement are important facets of our care model.

The Health Care Center at Friendship Village Columbus provides long-term care, intermediate and skilled nursing, short-term rehabilitation and respite care with choice of private or semi-private rooms. The Health Center is Medicare and Medicaid certified and exceeds state staffing requirements for nursing aides. With registered nurses on staff and a physician on call at all times, high-quality resident care is our top priority.

Innovative treatment options for skilled care and long-term residents

Friendship Village Columbus incorporates an innovative IV portable delivery system that allows patients to continue daily activities and therapies while safely receiving necessary medications. Physical, occupational, restorative and speech therapies are offered seven days a week. FVC is proud to offer VitalStimTM therapy, a highly specialized treatment to aid in recovering swallowing functions.

The prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers and wounds are another key focus of the health center team that includes a certified nurse practitioner and other members specially trained in wound management. An innovative web-based wound care assessment tool allows medical practitioners to view and monitor wound status remotely to ensure timely treatment and maximize comfort and quality of life for all residents.

We moved to Friendship Village Columbus for various reasons. We are reasonably healthy and wanted to be sure we could enjoy the benefits of independent living before moving to the next phase of our lives. Through the experience of some friends we decided to skip the condo phase and go directly to a friendly senior living environment.

We moved here before we were 70 to allow for a pleasurable retirement. The Lifecare contract, safety, amenities and activities supersede any other facilities we considered. Camaraderie between residents and staff is a rich experience.
