Kindred Transitional Care Hospitals provide long-term acute care (LTAC) to patients who are seriously ill with multiple medical problems. These patients require aggressive, specialized interdisciplinary care and extended recovery time.
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. In 2011, almost 70% of our patients went home or to a lower level of care.
Kindred has more than two decades of expertise in ventilator care and we successfully wean 44% of the patients referred to us, most of whom were considered unable to be weaned from a ventilator because of multisystem failure.
Our patients often need the following types of care:
Our transitional care hospitals have 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. They are licensed as acute care hospitals and accredited by The Joint Commission.
