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.

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.
