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.

Fresh New Look, Continued Higher Level of Care
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.
