Health Facilities Information

Welcome to the Health Facilities Consumer Information System (HFCIS) website. The purpose of this website is to provide health care consumers and general public with information about licensed long-term care facilities and hospitals throughout California. You can locate a facility in the area of your choice by entering a zip code, city, or county which will then detail the location with a map of the surrounding area.

The website provides profile information for each facility such as ownership, certification status (acceptance of Medicare and/or Medi-Cal) and performance history including complaints; entity reported incidents, state enforcement actions, and survey deficiencies.

This website also provides the option of submitting a complaint regarding a specific facility that will be forwarded to the appropriate Licensing and Certification District Office for investigation. The Related Links includes numerous links such as governmental, advocates and provider organizations.
