We Are Kindred Healthcare

Kindred Healthcare is the largest diversified provider of post-acute care services in the United States. Named a Fortune magazine Most Admired Company six years, Kindred's mission is to promote healing, provide hope, preserve dignity and produce value for each patient, resident, family member, customer, employee and shareholder we serve.

Our transitional care hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospital and licensed as acute care hospitals) provide high-intensity medical care to patients who need extended hospital stays. Our nursing and rehabilitation centers provide a full range of medical and social services to treat and support each and every one of our patients and residents. And RehabCare provides intensive rehabilitative care to help people return to their lives with as much independence as possible.

The Value of Post-Acute Care

The most common hospital setting in America is one that provides short-term acute care for patients with pressing health issues – emergencies or surgeries brought on by illness or an accident. The immediate objective is to stabilize the patient and begin the recovery process.

For many of these patients, however, a quick recovery is unrealistic. They need continued care – post-acute care. At Kindred, we continue the care for our patients or residents in sites of service across the post-acute spectrum. Our expertise across this spectrum allows us to achieve our goal of helping patients recover to the fullest by providing care in the proper care setting.
We provide post-acute care through the following:

  • Transitional care hospitals, which provide aggressive, specialized long-term acute care (LTAC) to medically complex patients who require extended recovery time
  • Nursing and rehabilitation centers that provide a full range of medical, nursing, rehabilitation and social services to treat and support each of our patients, whether long term or short term
  • Our rehabilitation services business, RehabCare, which helps patients get their lives back by providing physical and occupational therapy and speech-language pathology
  • Inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, where patients receive intense rehabilitation regimens to fully recover from an injury or illness
  • Home health care, which offers medical services, including wound care and rehabilitation therapy, provided in the comfort of your home, wherever you live
  • Hospice, a family-oriented model of care designed to meet the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of patients in life’s final season
