When people are discharged from traditional hospitals they often need additional care to help them recover completely and successfully. That's where we come in.
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 Las Vegas area, Kindred provides services including aggressive, medically complex care, intensive care and short-term rehabilitation through transitional care hospitals, a subacute unit, an outpatient wound care unit, and home care services.
Our transitional care hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospitals)
are unique in their ability to care for critically ill patients who require specialized, aggressive, goal-directed care and extended recovery time.
Our hospitals are licensed as acute care hospitals, but 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.
Our hospitals have 24-hour physician support and the ancillary services found at an acute care hospital, including laboratory, radiology or procedure rooms, Intensive 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 services include comprehensive inpatient medical care and rehabilitation for medically complex patients with an acute illness, injury or exacerbation of a disease. These patients no longer require the high-intensity, aggressive medical care provided in a hospital. Our services include specialized short-term, inpatient rehabilitation with a full range of medical, rehabilitative and social services and skilled nursing care. We offer physical, occupational and speech language therapy and specialized programs that address a wide variety of conditions.
Our goal is to help patients regain function and successfully transition patients to a less intense level of service, such as skilled nursing care
or home with additional services. Being co-located in our transitional care hospital enables care and treatment by the same physicians, helping ensure a coordinated transition and improved outcomes.
The Outpatient Wound Care Clinic at Kindred Hospital Las Vegas – Sahara features versatile state-of-the-art hyperbaric chambers and equipment. The program is supervised by physician specialists and staffed by nurses trained in the medical and physical aspects of wound care and hyperbaric medicine. Therapeutic services are provided for both our inpatients and referred outpatients.
We 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.
Hospice provides a family-oriented model of care designed to meet the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of patients in life’s final transition. Under the guidance of a physician, our hospice care provides essential respite care for family caregivers while keeping the patient in a familiar and comfortable environment. Our services continue for families up to one year following a hospice patient’s death.
We also provide companionship and homemaker services in the client’s home or place of residence. These services include personal care, meal preparation, light housekeeping, respite care, memory/Alzheimer’s care, transportation and 12 and 24-hour care.
We are proud to offer an innovative, new approach to care through our Care Transitions Program. The program is a quality improvement initiative designed for patients with medically complex conditions. We provide patients with Care Transitions Managers, patient advocates and navigators who communicate directly with patients, caregivers and primary care physicians or specialists every step of the way. They facilitate transitions between settings and help fill in communication gaps. Read more about our program.
We are excited to be the preferred post-acute care provider and a strategic partner with the Silver State Accountable Care Organization.
