• Our employees make a difference every day

    Our employees are valued members of an interdisciplinary team that includes physicians, nurses, rehabilitation and respiratory therapists, dietitians and case managers. Their goal is simple -- to help medically complex patients recover to their fullest potential.

    Kindred is the nation's largest operator of transitional care hospitals, which offer critical care services to patients with medically complex conditions. These patients are critically ill and have few care options left; they come to us because they are unable to recover completely in a short-term setting. Our patients have serious medical conditions, often many at the same time, requiring a coordinated, specialized approach, directed by physicians, to meet their daily medical needs.

    Kindred Hospitals offer a unique opportunity for professional engagement and enrichment in an atmosphere that offers growth and independence. As a Kindred employee, you get more than a competitive package of salary and benefits. You get the satisfaction of truly making a difference in the lives of your patients – the fulfillment that reminds you why you got into healthcare in the first place.

    Leadership Development

    Executive Fellowship Program
    Kindred Healthcare's new Executive Fellowship Program (EFP) has been developing hospital CEOs since February of 2009. As part of the curriculum, Fellows in the program complete division-specific rotation assignments in field locations and they meet together at Kindred's support center three times during the year-long formal program to receive training in interpersonal, managerial, and leadership skills. The goal of the EF program is to better prepare facility leaders for the challenges of a fast-paced industry by providing them with practical, hands-on experiences and skill development.

    Nurse Leadership Program
    There are myriad challenges confronting nurse leaders because of the ever-accelerating pace of change confronting the healthcare industry. Kindred's three-day Nurse Leadership program is designed to provide hands-on, practical tools and resources to help our leaders face these critical, new challenges. In a highly interactive and engaging series of workshops, participants are provided training in interpersonal skills, delegation, performance management, conflict management, team building and leadership.
