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 Healthcare we understand that when people are discharged from traditional hospitals they often need continued care to recover completely and successfully. That’s where we come in.
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 and Henderson area, Kindred offers services including aggressive care for medically complex patients, intensive care and short-term rehabilitation through three transitional care hospitals, one subacute and transitional care unit and homecare and hospice care.
Our Las Vegas 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, 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 Kindred Hospital Las Vegas Flamingo , our subacute ser vices include comprehensive inpatient medical care and rehabilitation for medically complex 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. Our goal is to successfully transition patients to a less intense level of service, such as skilled nursing care offered through our transitional care and rehabilitation services, or home with additional services. Being co-located in our transitional care hospital enables care and treatment by the same physicians, therapists and care professionals, helping ensure a coordinated transition and improved outcomes.
We provide specialized short-term, inpatient rehabilitation with a full range of medical, rehabilitative and social services and skilled nursing care. 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 and specialized short-term rehabilitative programs that address a wide variety of conditions. These services are also located within Kindred Hospital Las Vegas - Flamingo.
