For Your Peace of Mind

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. At the same time, we realize it can’t hurt to be surrounded by beautiful gardens. We’ve completely renovated the space and made it more accessible to our resident’s and their families.

Employee of the Month

Drew Southerland

Assistant Dietary Manager

Drew has been employed by Carmel Hills Care Center since January 23, 2008 in Dietary. He worked part time as a dishwasher until being promoted to a Dietary Aide. He learned procedures and protocols of working in a Healthcare facility from (former) Dietary Managers; the same knowledge skills that assisted in qualifying him for his current position.

Drew, under the direction of Michael Kellogg (Dietary Dir.), works the day to day operations as well as staff scheduling and meeting with Residents. New Residents are greeted by Drew, during their initial admission, to discuss food options after he receives Diet orders from the admitting Charge Nurse.

Drew is constantly being praised by Residents during Care Plan meetings. “He is the best, what a great guy and he’s always ready to help” are a few common praises. Indeed Drew, you always have the time to help a Resident, family member or co-worker. This is a well-deserved nomination and you are a great example of our Core Values.

Congratulations on being the October Employee of the Month!
