Additional Types of Care

We are committed to proving high-quality care and outstanding service. Our goal is to help you return to the highest quality of life possible. In addition to our core services, we offer:

Case Management

Each person admitted to a Kindred Hospital is assigned a Case Manager. The Case Manager will contact you within two to three working days after your admission to gather information regarding your resource needs and future discharge planning needs. The Case Manager will advise you of an estimate of how long you will probably be an inpatient at Kindred. If during your stay here, you would like to meet with the treatment team, the Case Manager will be glad to set up a conference. Prior to discharge, the Case Manager will help coordinate referrals to community resources, such as home healthcare, durable medical equipment, hospice, nursing homes and assisted living, to name just a few.

Diagnostic Imaging

Skilled and certified technicians operate our imaging equipment, and we make every effort to perform the testing in as prompt and as convenient a manner as possible.

Dialysis

When kidney failure occurs, dialysis is essential to filter impurities from your blood and maintain the chemical balance you need.  If you or a loved one is experiencing a multi-system failure, our expertise allows us to treat your complex condition. We may offer dialysis in a designated room or at the bedside.

Endoscopy

Your physician may require you to receive an endoscopy should he/she need to see inside your digestive system. During this procedure, an endoscope (a flexible, lighted tube) is inserted into the digestive system, allowing the physician to carefully examine the lining of these organs. Our endoscopy team works to make you as comfortable as possible before, during and after the procedure.

Food Services and Nutrition Support

Nutrition is an important part of your recovery, which is why our dietitians work with your entire care team to create your custom meal plan. Your food preferences and allergies are important—and our dietitians create plans that make the most sense for you.

Additionally, our dietitians perform assessments and monitor your nutrition plan, as ordered by your clinical team.

Geriatric Services

We host a team of geriatric specialists ranging from physicians to therapists to dietitians who focus on helping our senior patients live life as actively and independently as possible for as long as possible.

Hearing Impaired

Should you need a signer for the deaf or hearing impaired, please reach out to our Case Management Department. Special equipment, such as an amplifier for your phone and TDD (telecommunications device for the deaf), also is available. Ask your Case Manager to assist you with these services.

Intensive Care

After a hospital stay for a serious injury or illness, you may need continued critical care and intensive monitoring. We provide this close, constant attention through a specially-trained team of clinical experts in one of our Intensive Care Units or Special Care Units. 

We also work with your referring hospital to make your care transition as smooth as possible without interrupting the treatment you require. 

Most often, our Intensive Care Units, treat those who are ventilator dependent or require cardiac monitoring and intravenous medications. We can also treat multi-system failure or complications from an injury, illness, or surgery.

Interpreters

Language is no barrier. If you do not speak English fluently, do not worry, the quality of your treatment will not be affected in any way. We can make arrangements for an interpreter to communicate with our non-English speaking patients and visitors.

If you need the help of an interpreter, tell your Case Manager or caregiver. If our in-house interpreters cannot speak your language, we will obtain the services you need to enable communication with you.

Laboratory

Our hospitals feature onsite laboratories, allowing us to work directly with your clinical team to conduct all required tests. To perform tests as accurately and quickly as possible, we offer advanced technologies and equipment.

Pain Management

Our clinical team is extensively trained and committed to your pain management and prevention. We continually assess your pain level and respond to your reports. We also provide information and education to help you and your loved ones make decisions about your pain treatment options.  

You may request or reject the use of any or all methods to relieve pain, including non-opiate and opiate medications.
