A Kindred Transitional Care Hospital (certified as a long-term acute care hospital) offers acute care services including aggressive, medically complex care, intensive care and short-term rehabilitation. Our hospitals are unique settings where patients receive extended intensive care and aggressive rehabilitation simultaneously.The most common hospital setting in America is one that provides short-term acute care for patients with pressing health issues – emergencies brought on by an acute illness or an accident. The immediate objective is to stabilize patients and help them recover as quickly as possible.Unfortunately, not all patients can recover quickly. They need a transitional care hospital.Kindred Hospital is part of a nationwide network of transitional care hospitals. We provide specialized care for medically complex patients whose conditions require special medical treatment as well as more time to fully recovery. We serve as a bridge between short-term hospital care and care at a nursing center or at home.Our patients come to us to continue receiving the most appropriate critical care for their condition as we help transition them to the next stage of their recovery. We offer a full range of care for our patients, which may include but is not limited to:
Our hospital has 24-hour physician support and the ancillary services found at an acute care hospital, including laboratory, radiology, operating or procedure rooms, intensive care units and telemetry units. Our hospital is licensed as an acute care hospital 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.
