While all Kindred centers care for patients with pulmonary diagnoses, some centers offer additional and advanced capabilities to care for these patients. Our pulmonary program helps patients breathe easier. Through this program, our patients benefit from specialized processes, tools and equipment as well as an interdisciplinary team with specific training and extra experience for the conditions they treat.
Our pulmonary program is designed to help each patient achieve positive outcomes through evidence-based clinical care so that each patient can regain function – all with the combination of critical thinking and clinical excellence that has made Kindred a leader in the field.

We offer streamlined processes for referral, admission and discharge home. This enables patients to quickly receive the care they need after they leave the hospital and get home faster once they are better. We also feature progressive care planning and education designed to help prepare patients for care at home or transition to a less complex care setting as quickly as their needs allow.
