Frequently Asked Questions

Kindred Hospitals provides physician-led long-term acute care and specialized rehabilitation to medically complex patients. 

Our care includes, but is not limited to, ventilator management and liberation, advanced wound care, and IV drug therapy, as well as physical therapy and speech and language pathology.

At Kindred, patients receive daily physician visits and surgical and specialist consults as needed, including general surgery, pulmonology, cardiology, and infectious disease.

We also provide access to on-site services such as 24/7 respiratory therapy, radiology, laboratory and dialysis.

Kindred Hospitals’ physicians and care teams treat patients with a wide variety of acute and complex conditions that are further complicated by the presence of one or more comorbidities.  Conditions treated include:

  • Respiratory infection and failure
  • Heart failure
  • Renal infection and failure
  • Sepsis
  • Skin ulcers
  • Post-operative complications
  • Traumatic brain injury

Because we offer ICU-level care, appropriate patients can be transferred to a Kindred specialty hospital while they are still in a critical condition.  Referring physicians may have the option to follow their patent’s treatment plan at our facility for continuity of care.

Timely referral to a Kindred facility, where patients will be treated by caregivers that specialize in complex conditions, decreases inpatient length of stay while improving outcomes.
