"I spent 2 1/2 months at Hickory Creek at Columbus in rehabilitation. It was a time that I found the best of care while undergoing physical therapy and medical treatment. Let me recommend this facility to anyone that needs nursing care or rehabilitation. They are efficient, diligent, and extremely professional in all aspects of nursing care and rehabilitation. Also, the food was great! I would like to give a huge thanks to all who participated in my recovery."
