At Kindred Healthcare we understand that when people are discharged from short-term acute care hospitals they often need continued care to recover completely and successfully. That’s where we come in. Kindred’s expertise across a variety of post-acute care sites of service helps us provide care for patients in the most appropriate setting.
At Kindred we specialize in delivering quality medical interventions and successfully transitioning patients home or to a less intense level of care that meets their needs and enhances their quality of life.
In the Houston area, Kindred offers services including aggressive care for medically complex patients, intensive care and short- term rehabilitation in 10 transitional care hospitals, two inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, home health, hospice and in-home physician care.

Our transitional care hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospitals) provide specialized, goal-directed care for critically ill patients requiring extended recovery time. Licensed as acute care hospitals, we have an additional Medicare certification that supports a length of stay measured in weeks as compared to the typical five-day stay for patients in traditional hospitals. We offer 24-hour physician support and the ancillary services found at an acute care hospital, including laboratory, radiology, operating or procedure rooms, special care units and telemetry units. Our specialized care includes: pulmonary care (ventilator management and weaning), complex wound care, dialysis, IV antibiotic therapy and pain management.
Through expert, intense interdisciplinary care and aggressive therapy, our free standing Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals and hospital-based Acute Rehabilitation Units – all certified as Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) – are designed to provide rapid recovery and improved function for patients who can tolerate at least three hours of rehabilitative care per day. Additionally, these settings provide physician-supervised interdisciplinary care for patients who have a clinical need for therapy in at least two disciplines, daily physician oversight and 24-hour nursing care.
The home health professionals with Kindred at Home and Gentiva, an affiliate of Kindred at Home, provide medical care and services – including nursing care, wound care and rehabilitation therapies – delivered in the comfort of a patient’s own home. Experienced nurses, therapists and aides work to maximize physical abilities, improve health and well-being and provide essential education and management of medications and medical conditions.
Our professionals at our hospice locations provide a family oriented care model in order to meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of terminal patients and their families. Our services allow patients to stay in a comfortable environment while providing support such as pain management, aggressive comfort measures and psychological support to create the best possible end-of-life experience.
Our physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses provide compassionate medical care in the homes and assisted and independent living facilities of Houston-area seniors. Our board-certified physicians direct complete primary care, specialty care and urgent care services for people who cannot leave home to get to doctor's visits.
With the capability to coordinate all aspects of medical care for individuals in the home, hospital, or nursing home, our patients receive outstanding care while developing a long-term relationship with their care providers. We provide complete complex chronic and acute care management for our patients. We also offer attending hospital physicians, assistance in care transitions, dementia care, palliative care and podiatric care.
Kindred, through RehabCare, offers a variety of rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and speech-language therapies. These services are offered across the entire post-acute continuum through every transition.
