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. 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 Seattle/Puget Sound area, Kindred offers services including aggressive care for medically complex patients, intensive care and short-term rehabilitation through two transitional care hospitals, two subacute units, three nursing and rehabilitation centers, home health and hospice services.
Our transitional care hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospitals) are unique in their ability to care for critically ill patients in the Seattle/Puget Sound area who require specialized, aggressive, goal-directed care over an 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, not days, as compared to the typical five-day stay for patients in traditional hospitals. We offer specialized services and extended care for medically complex patients who are unable to recover completely in the short-term setting. Our hospitals have 24-hour physician support and the ancillary services found at an acute care hospital, including laboratory, radiology, 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 hospitals, our Subacute Units are designed to successfully transition patients to a less intense level of service, such as a skilled nursing center, or home with additional services. Being co-located in our hospitals enables care and treatment by the same physicians, therapists and care professionals, helping ensure a coordinated transition and improved outcomes. 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.
From specialized short-term, inpatient rehabilitation to compassionate long-term care, Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation 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 including pulmonary, cardiac, wound care, orthopedic and stroke recovery.
