Attention all guests of Pasadena Care Center:
For the convenience of residents, quicker access to transportation, and to offer easier access for our visitors, we have opened the upstairs entrance.
The downstairs door will be used as an emergency exit only.
Please enter the driveway on the south end of the facility and press the “CALL” button for entry.
Then, follow the arrows that lead to the new upstairs entrance.
We appreciate your cooperation.

The information below is Pasadena Care Center regular weekly update to help ensure residents, family, team members and the community are kept up to date on our current COVID-19 status.
We would like to update all our families, friends, and loved ones, that we have 0 positive resident, 0 positive staff; we ask that if you would like to see your loved one that you make an appointment with us prior to coming. If you have any questions please call the facility and ask to speak to the director of nurses or to the administrator. Thank you for understanding during this time.
We will continue to update you to provide you with any new developments
Discharged residents may request a copy of their medical records verbally and/or by completing and submitting an Authorization for Release of Personal Health Information form.
You can download and complete the authorization form from our website to submit your medical record request by fax, email or mail. A Medical Records representative can also email you a form to compete, fax, email or mail back to the Center.
Verification of identity may be required. Acceptable forms of identification include driver’s license, state-issued ID, or a valid, current passport.
If you are requesting for copies of medical records, standardized copying charges will be applied in addition to any postal charges or CD ROM charges. Records will only be released via mail or picked up in person with an advanced appointment.
The Medical Records Department’s hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The department is closed on weekends and major holidays. Please direct your inquiries to the Med Rec department for status updates or the Center Administrator.
Due to the current PHE, CMS modified the requirement at 42 CFR §483.10(g)(2)(ii) to allow LTC facilities 10 working days to provide a resident’s record rather than the standard two working days. If the requested information is located off-site or if the authorization form is not properly filled out, additional time may be required to process your request.
If you are requesting copies for someone other than yourself, you will need to provide legal documentation that verifies legal guardianship, power of attorney, executorships or next-of-kin relationship to a decedent.
