Mee Memorial Hospital is a 119-bed, not-forprofit community hospital and for more than 50 years has served the people of Southern Monterey County.
In the past few years, we have grown dramatically in both our scope of operations and services to better serve the people of the area. The hospital includes Acute Care, Skilled Nursing, Obstetrics, ICU, 24-hour Emergency Department, Comprehensive Imaging Department and Surgery Suite.
In addition, Mee operates Five medical clinics in King City and Greenfield.
Mee Memorial Hospital’s Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center provides the highest level of medical, nursing and rehabilitative care. Each resident’s unique needs are met by a staff of highly skilled professionals who combine exemplary medical competencies and compassionate patient-centered care. Mee Memorial is proud of its excellent staffing ratio for the residents.
Patients who are transferred from in-patient care at Mee Memorial Hospital to Skilled Nursing/Rehabilitation Unit are able to have the same therapist available. After discharge home, patients will be able to attend out-patient therapy and still be followed by the same therapy team, allowing a continuum of care.
The diverse services include an active rehabilitation program with designated beds for those who particularly are in need of services, such as those who have had joint replacement or are recovering from a stroke or other illness.
Rehabilitative services may include:
- Physical Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech Therapy
Other specialized services:
- Respiratory Therapy
- IV Therapy

- Complex Post-Surgical Needs

The ultimate goal is to return residents to their own homes or other appropriate living arrangements. Each resident’s therapy program is prescribed by his or her physician and progress is monitored weekly. Once those appropriate goals have been met, a discharge plan is developed with applicable follow-up services for the patient and family.
The entire Staff at Mee Memorial Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is fully commited to each and every patient.
Around the clock, nurses and their aides monitor each resident. In addition, Mee Memorial Skilled Nursing provides in-house Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy.
