Kindred Transitional Care Hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospitals and licensed as acute care hospitals) provide aggressive, specialized interdisciplinary care to medically complex patients who require extended recovery time. These patients are ill and have few care options left; they come to us because they require the aggressive, specialized care and prolonged recovery and are unable to recover completely in the short-term setting.
