Tucked quietly away in the Carmel Hills, surrounded by stately pines and gardens, you’ll find the care you expect at Carmel Hills Care Center. We are a State of California Licensed and Federally Certified Skilled Nursing Facility. Our programs have been designed not just to meet, but rather, to exceed all laws and regulations that govern facilities like ours. Because we are locally owned and operated, we are completely accountable for the quality of care we provide.
You can take comfort in the fact that we are strategically located next to the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula should there be a need for emergency or specialized care in a hospital. We understand the importance of warm and comfortable surroundings as an aid to recuperation, and make every effort to provide our residents with a positive life experience.
Carmel Hills Care Center hires only caregivers who are experienced and who can demonstrate qualities of compassion, dependability, and understanding of the needs of our residents. We do background and reference checks on all caregivers.

If you haven’t visited recently, you’ll notice a significant change to our front courtyard. At Carmel Hills Care Center, we know our service is judged by the level of care we provide.

Employee of the Month
Kayla Velasquez-Ruiz, DSD Assistant/C.N.A.
Kayla was originally hired as a C.N.A. and has been employed by Carmel Hills Care Center since April 2, 2015. Kayla worked different areas allowing her to learn a wide range of C.N.A. duties.
When a position became available in the Director of Staff Development Office Kayla applied and was hired as a DSD Assistant. Kayla’s position covers a wide range of duties which include, but are not limited to: maintaining employee files to assure health records are up to date; assure in-services are attended by C.N.A’s to earn CE credits and assisting with monthly schedules. Her knowledge of C.N.A. duties also provides a different outlook when addressing work issues presented by C.N.A.’s to the DSD.
Kayla continues to fill in as a C.N.A. to cover shifts when staff is not available to fill in. Her willingness to assist as needed makes her our choice for Employee of the Month.
