Westerwood rehabilitation.

When it comes to rehabilitation and long-term care, experience matters.

With more than 40 years of experience, our award-winning, top-rated health services make a positive difference in patient outcomes.

Formerly known as Friendship Village Columbus, Westerwood is the same nonprofit Life Care community with the same great team that is highly regarded by healthcare professionals and the people we have served for 40+ years.

A key to our success is our nonprofit status. In contrast to privately owned, for-profit health services, nonprofit Westerwood Rehabilitation is driven solely by our mission and values to serve our elders. We reinvest in our community to elevate both the quality of care and our residents’ quality of life.

Important: Before undergoing surgery or being discharged from the hospital, be sure to request Westerwood Rehabilitation (formerly known as Friendship Village Columbus) as your first choice in short-term rehabilitation and recovery.

Long-term care at Westerwood.

Quality care is more than medicine, equipment, and procedures. It also encompasses compassion, a commitment to service, and positive relationships built on communication. Our skilled nursing team follows this guiding question: “How can we make your day the best day possible?”
