Once you land in Louisville, Kindred will provide shuttle service to/from the airport. There will be an airport greeter near baggage claim with a Kindred Healthcare sign who will direct you to the shuttle. We will set the hours based on flight arrivals and departures and post that schedule closer to the event. If you arrive or depart after our posted hours then you are responsible for your own transportation.

Can I bring my spouse/guest?

  • Conference events are mandatory and not open for spouses/guests. If you wish to bring your spouse/guest to Louisville it will be at your own expense, but please remember they will not be included in the Summit events, including meals. We also ask that you please let us know so the hotel can be made aware of the double occupancy in the room.

While I’m in Louisville, is it possible to stop by the Support Center?

  • This year special arrangements have been made and we have incorporated a guided visit to the Support Center on the first day of the conference. Unfortunately this is for Summit attendees only and we cannot accommodate any spouse/guest. The Support Center is not open to the general public. To comply with our Safety & Security policy, all visitors to the Support Center must be escorted by a Support Center staff member who has authorized access to the facility.
