About Us A Commitment To Quality
Our mission at Westwood Nursing and Rehabilitation is dedicated to helping our guests not only recover, but live better lives by providing the highest level of medical treatment and patient care possible. We treat our patients with the utmost sensitivity and respect, ensuring their complete comfort during their stay. Our facility thrives on our commitment to individualized, top-quality care. Each day, we seek to provide a family-like experience, with a warm, yet professional atmosphere for each of our guests. This commitment is what makes us distinguished within the peaceful Fort Walton Beach community where we are located.
We understand the challenges one faces when choosing a rehabilitation or long-term care facility for a loved one. Westwood belongs to a family of facilities dedicated to providing the highest level of care possible for both our short-term friends, and long-term family. We implement a unique method to providing care, one that focuses on nurturing the overall mental and physical wellness of our residents, not just treating medical issues. Our state-of-the-art facilities combine cutting edge technology with a warm, friendly atmosphere. Aside from our top notch, round-the-clock medical care, guests can look forward to community outings, fun activities, luxurious rooms, and hands-on, delicate care.
For our long-term and short-term residents, we offer an individualized plan of care and services tailored to meet specialized needs. For our short-term rehabilitation patients, we focus on strengthening our patients so that they can return home as soon as possible. Family education, training, and care conferences are also available to address longer-term goals and discharge planning. In order to ensure a smooth transition after discharge, home evaluations are completed for most rehab patients returning home within about 1-2 weeks.
For our long-term patients, we do our utmost to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care. Our experienced staff maintains constant communication with our patient's medical team as well as their family members. At Westwood, you can rest easy knowing that your family member will receive warm, compassionate care, making his or her stay with us both comfortable and enjoyable.

Our mother is thriving, thanks to the excellent care she gets every day from the greatest employee’s on earth. From the skilled and caring nursing staff, a top notch rehab staff, an awesome social services representative, activities, dietary, housekeeping and maintenance. Westwood rocks it in all departments. We are so fortunate and blessed to have our mama in such good hands. Thank you all, our Westwood angels for all you do for Mom and our entire family."

"Everyone was very courteous and proactive, the nurses explained everything to me during my stay, the therapy department is outstanding and I got a wealth of information for my discharge. Without question I would recommend Westwood!"
- BJ Murray, Former Patient
"The staff is positive and attentive. They are so ready to help! When I ask for anything they take immediate action. Therapy is fabulous! They put me at ease and I have a lot of confidence in them. They are gentle but get the job done. I’ve made so much progress in a short amount of time. I was relieved and thankful to be able to come to Westwood Rehab after my knee replacement. I would definitely choose Westwood again!"
