A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
The Laurels of Walden Park is conveniently located at 5700 Karl Road in Columbus, Ohio. Our skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, formerly known as Villa Angela Care Center prior to joining the Laurel Health Care Company family of facilities, has been caring for the Greater Columbus community for decades. Our 225-bed facility promotes the highest level of care and quality of life to guests who are with us for short-term respite, rehabilitation or hospice care, or for extended stays.
We pride ourselves on the continuity of care available to our guests of our facility through individualized programs designed to meet their specific needs. We excel at short-term respite and hospice care, as well as short-term rehabilitation. And if you are rehabilitating with us, you can rest assured our therapy team is working with your physician to design a plan that will get you back in the game as quickly as possible.
We put equal energy into caring for our long-term guests, whom we consider cherished members of our Laurel family. Guests enjoy a full slate of activities, community outings, special events, and birthday and holiday celebrations.

The therapy at The Laurels of Walden Park was excellent. The people that helped me out care very much about me and my individual goals. The reason I have my electric wheelchair and my independence is because of the therapy team here! I used to have pain in my shoulder and the therapy team was able to get rid of that pain so I could use my arm again!
I'd rather be here than anywhere else. The staff are so friendly and helpful. When I first came to the facility, I didn't know what to expect because this environment was new to me, but it was easy making friends and that helped me a lot. The staff explained every procedure and minor change that would come by making this my home. Now, I'm confident enough to go to the right staff member depending on my needs. It's easy here!!
My mom has been a resident here for the past 17 years. Over the years, I've established great relationships with the staff, which is important. Recently they've been very helpful with setting up window visits throughout the pandemic. Everyone here has been great and I recommend this place for your loved one in need.
