A few words about us

why choose us

We are a 24 hour skilled nursing facility that specializes in post-acute nursing care, rehabilitation, pain management, respite and hospice.


Good Shepherd Healthcare is located in beautiful Santa Monica Beach, CA. For over two decades, Good Shepherd Healthcare has provided skilled nursing services to patients from UCLA, St. John's, Brotman, Cedars Sinai and Olympia medical centers. We also partner with many hospice providers and HMO's and offer short or long term care placements.

Our staff is professionally trained and licensed or certified in nursing or rehabilitation. With a combined 60 years of experience, you can feel comfortable in knowing that we will work with you and your physician to develop a comprehensive plan of care to help you reach your functional and therapeutic goals.


Unlike other nursing facilities, we pride ourselves in being more homelike and less clinical.  We are situated in a quaint residential neighborhood and you can often see families or couples taking leisurely walks outside our big bay windows.  A jogger or a person walking her dog often smiles or says hello to our residents who go outside to get some fresh sea air and sun.  Our period decor evokes a simpler time.  But rest assured, modern technology is in our rehab gym and computers at our nursing station.  Bringing together the past and the present to create a comfortable, casual beach atmosphere to skilled nursing is what makes Good Shepherd Healthcare your first choice for post-acute care in Santa Monica.
