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 Louisville and Southern Indiana area, Kindred offers services including aggressive care for medically complex patients, intensive care and short-term rehabilitation through two transitional care hospitals, a subacute unit, six nursing and rehabilitation centers, an outpatient wound care unit, home health and hospice services.

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.
Situated within our transitional care hospital, our Subacute Unit is designed to successfully transition patients to a less intense level of service, such as a skilled nursing center, or home with additional services. The unit provides comprehensive inpatient medical care and rehabilitation for those patients with an acute illness, injury or exacerbation of a disease who no longer require the high intensity, aggressive medical care provided in a hospital. Being co-located with our transitional care hospital enables care and treatment by the same physicians, therapists and care professionals, helping ensure a coordinated transition and improved outcomes.
From specialized short-term, inpatient rehabilitation to compassionate long-term care, our centers provide a full range of medical, rehabilitative and social services to treat and support each of our patients. Our goal is to help patients achieve positive outcomes, regain function and safely return home as quickly as their recovery allows. Our services include physical, occupational and speech language therapy, skilled nursing, dementia care and specialized short-term rehabilitative programs that address a wide variety of conditions.
The home health professionals provide high-quality, comprehensive and compassionate care in the comfort of the patient’s home. We deliver services according to a plan of care that is developed by the patient, family members and physician to encourage independent functioning. Our in-home services allow each patient to remain safe in familiar, comfortable surroundings with treatment delivered by expertly trained nurses, therapists, social workers and aides.
Whether helping to recover from surgery, address a serious illness or condition, recuperate from a fall or manage a chronic disease, our goal is to maximize physical abilities and improve health and well-being for every patient.
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.
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.
