Long-Term Care

At University Health Lakewood Care Center, residents receive the highest level of skilled nursing care with access to medical services on-site.

Our fully accredited skilled nursing facility serves 188 residents who have severe, chronic health problems. As part of this, we have a 20-bed Alzheimer's/Dementia Unit that offers memory care to female residents who need it.

A team of highly skilled nurses cares for all our residents. And a board-certified geriatric specialist directs all patient care.

Our quality is evident in the fact that we receive high ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
