REVIEWS

I have been in long-term care facility ministry for several years. I have never seen a better facility than Ft. Walton Rehabilitation Center, it is clean and the staff and residents enjoy each other’s company. I have seen staff sing to residents, pray with residents, and genuinely care for our precious residents and each other. The corporate management team is just a phone call away and care about our staff and residents. I am proud to be a part of the Southern Healthcare Management family and Ft Walton Rehabilitation Center. Great place to be!

This is an extremely nice facility that is well run and very well kept. I was amazed at how attentive the staff and management are to every detail. If you or a loved one is in need of acute rehab or long term care I would HIGHLY recommend this facility.
