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. 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 Tampa Bay area, Kindred offers services including aggressive care for medically complex patients, intensive care and short-term rehabilitation through our transitional care hospitals and home health 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 over an extended period of recovery time. Our hospitals are licensed as acute care hospitals with an additional Medicare certification that supports a longer length of stay – usually 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 fully recover 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, pharmacies, 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.
The home health professionals with Senior Home Care, an affiliate of Kindred at Home, provide high-quality, comprehensive and compassionate care in the comfort of each patient’s home. We deliver services according to a plan of care that is developed by the patient, family members and physician to maximize independent functioning. Our in-home services allow each patient to remain safe in familiar surroundings with treatment delivered by highly trained nurses, therapists, social workers and aides. Whether helping to recuperate from surgery, address a serious illness or condition, recover from a fall or manage a chronic disease, our goal is to maximize physical abilities and improve health and well being for every patient.
The therapists with RehabCare, a division of Kindred, provide a variety of rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and speech-language therapies. These services are offered across the entire post-acute continuum through every transaction.
