Ellicott City Health & Rehabilitation Center | Ratings & Reviews

Ellicott City Health & Rehabilitation Center is large, 182-bed nursing home in Ellicott City.  It is conveniently located near Routes 40, 29 and 70 in a beautiful area of a town that is perennially on the list of the best places to live in the country.

You would expect a nursing home in such a nice area would be a great nursing home, right?  You would guess wrong.  This Communicare owned nursing home has, as you will see below, and extremely troubling ratings from Medicare.   Their overall rating is 1 star.  You cannot get worse than that.  

Inspections of the facility are pretty awful.  Instead of us talking about it, you can read this 2017 inspection report for Ellicott City Health & Rehab for yourself.

Our lawyers looked for nursing home abuse or negligence lawsuits against this nursing home and, surprisingly, did not find any.  But if Ellicott City Health & Rehabilitation Center does not get its act together, it is soon going to learn that Howard County Circuit Court is just 2.5 miles away.
