Kindred Healthcare is the largest diversified provider of post-acute care services in the United States. Named a Fortune magazine Most Admired Company five years in a row, Kindred's mission is to promote healing, provide hope, preserve dignity and produce value for each patient, resident, family member, customer, employee and shareholder we serve. Our transitional care hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospital and licensed as acute care hospitals) provide high-intensity medical care to patients who need extended hospital stays. Our nursing and rehabilitation centers provide a full range of medical and social services to treat and support each and every one of our patients and residents. And RehabCare provides intensive rehabilitative care to help people return to their lives with as much independence as possible.
The most common hospital setting in America is one that provides short-term acute care for patients with pressing health issues – emergencies or surgeries brought on by illness or an accident. The immediate objective is to stabilize the patient and begin the recovery process.For many of these patients, however, a quick recovery is unrealistic. They need continued care – post-acute care. At Kindred, we continue the care for our patients or residents in sites of service across the post-acute spectrum. Our expertise across this spectrum allows us to achieve our goal of helping patients recover to the fullest by providing care in the proper care setting.
We provide post-acute care through:
The American Hospital Association developed a report that discusses the value of post-acute care in the healthcare continuum and explores how post-acute care providers can serve as important partners – both for acute-care hospitals and for one another – in improving quality and reducing costs over an episode of care. According to the report, partnerships across settings not only benefit patients transitioning to a post-acute site, but can also benefit general acute-care hospitals referring to and receiving referrals from post-acute care. As a provider of post-acute care services, Kindred Healthcare is well positioned to work with other healthcare services providers. As highlighted on page 5 of the report, Kindred is pursuing relationships with certain acute-care hospitals, physician specialty groups and other partners in a variety of locations.
