Downey Community Health Center is a licensed and skilled nursing home and rehabilitation center in Downey, offering short-term recuperation and rehabilitation or skilled care. We have been serving the area as a Downey health center since 1980, and we are Medicare and Medi-Cal certified.

DCHC offers a variety of different programs to assist our residents in living their fullest lives. With our clean, comfortable accommodations, our residents enjoy a friendly staff that creates a variety of social opportunities and recreational programs to keep them interactive and entertained. Nutritious meals and snacks are served daily by our experienced staff.

All medical care at Downey Community Health Center is prescribed by the resident’s chosen attending physician. When therapy is ordered, our rehabilitation team assesses the resident’s condition, limitations and prognosis for improvement. The attending physician and our therapists work together to create the best treatment plan to assist the resident. Our goal is to achieve the greatest possible functional gains and improve the quality of life for our resident. 

Downey Community Health Center has recently partnered with Accelerated Care Plus to implement a new rehabilitation program. This specialty rehab program is built around state-of-the-art Physical Agent Modalities. These medical devices have already been utilized for 30 years with professional, collegiate and even Olympic athletes to help them recover and improve performance. Now, we can offer these safe medical devices to our residents as a way of increasing independence and functional gains.

A resident care plan at DCHC includes healthcare services that are delivered based upon the needs of each resident. The efforts of an attending physician, pharmacy, nursing staff, dietetics and activities and social services are combined to create a positive atmosphere for the resident. To ensure this, our interdisciplinary team reviews our plan with the resident and their family at a quarterly care plan meeting.

One aspect of DCHC is our experienced professionals who have worked at the facility for several years. Our Administrator, Director of Nurses, Office Manager, Medical Records Supervisor, Dietary Supervisor, Activity Director, Social Services Supervisor and Maintenance/Environmental Services Supervisor have more than 100 years of combined experience at Downey. 

At Downey Community Health Center, we also know that paying for healthcare services can be a big concern for the resident and her family. Therefore, we accept several payment plans including Private Pay, Medicare, Medi-Cal and contracted HMOs.
