Kindred Hospital Chicago Central Announces Plans to Close

We have decided to close Kindred Hospital Chicago Central. We have made this decision in order to consolidate services into nearby Kindred hospitals. By doing so, we can concentrate our resources into providing the best care possible for the community. We will be able to continue serving the community through Kindred’s other facilities in the Chicago area, including:

Kindred Hospital Chicago North at 2544 West Montrose Avenue https://www.kindredhealthcare.com/locations/transitional-care-hospitals/kindred-hospital-chicago-north-campus

Kindred Chicago Lakeshore at 6130 North Sheridan Road https://www.kindredhealthcare.com/locations/transitional-care-hospitals/kindred-hospital-chicago-lakeshore 

Kindred Hospital Chicago Northlake at 365 East North Avenue https://www.kindredhealthcare.com/locations/transitional-care-hospitals/kindred-hospital-chicago-northlake-campus

Kindred Hospital Sycamore at 225 Edward Street in Sycamore https://www.kindredhealthcare.com/locations/transitional-care-hospitals/kindred-hospital-sycamore 

Kindred Hospital Northwest Indiana at 5454 Hohman Avenue in Hammond https://www.kindredhealthcare.com/locations/transitional-care-hospitals/kindred-hospital-northwest-indiana.

If any patients need continued care after the hospital closes, please be assured that we will take every step necessary to help them in relocating, including arranging for requested transfers and paying for any expenses. This decision has no impact on our other area Kindred facilities. We are always evaluating our portfolio and looking for opportunities to reposition our assets so that we can provide services where and when patients need it most.

We have filed the appropriate regulatory paperwork to go forward with the closure. We expect to complete the closure by June 10, pending state approval. However, that date could change.

During the transition, we will continue to provide our patients with care and services and tend to their medical needs.
