St. Paul’s Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation

San Diego’s Leading Senior Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center

St. Paul’s Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation is a 24-hour skilled nursing community conveniently located near Downtown San Diego, just a few short blocks from beautiful Balboa Park.

At our boutique 59-bed center, we provide round-the-clock licensed nursing and rehabilitation services with an individualized care plan for every resident. This includes assistance with activities of daily living, as well as physical, speech, and occupational therapy.

We recognize the importance of attending to mental, emotional, and spiritual needs – not just the physical ones. That’s why our dedicated nurses are trained to care for the whole person. They take time to learn about each resident’s preferences so that each person feels genuinely cared for.

At St. Paul’s, it fills us with pride whenever a resident or healthcare professional says, “this place feels more like a community than a skilled nursing facility.” That’s because we’ve intentionally designed it to feel like a home away from home for those we care for.
