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:

Bariatric Surgery

Some patients have medical issues related to obesity. Our bariatric surgeons perform two of the most common methods of bariatric surgery – lap bands and gastric bypass. To aid patients who are making a decision about bariatric surgery, we offer informational seminars to answer questions and describe the procedures thoroughly.

Weight-Loss Surgery at Kindred Hospital Mansfield
Morbid obesity is much more than a weight issue – it can result in:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Joint degeneration
  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • GERD 


It can also rob you of energy and the ability to enjoy life’s simplest moments, from carrying a child to taking an evening walk with your spouse.

Diet and exercise are rarely effective on a long-term basis. Less than 5 percent of people who achieve significant weight loss through diet, exercise and/or medication have maintained that weight loss for 3 to 5 years. (1)

Success Through Weight Loss Surgery


Weight loss surgery is successful in achieving the desired loss of excess weight and sustaining that loss over time. (1)

The two best known and least invasive surgical approaches to treat morbid obesity are:

  • Lap Band
  • Gastric Bypass 


Both of these procedures can be performed with a minimally invasive technique known as laparoscopic surgery. This means the surgery is performed with highly advanced surgical techniques that require only a few very small incisions. The advantage of laparoscopic surgery is shorter recovery time, fewer complications and less pain.

Kindred Hospital Mansfield is a fully accredited hospital where qualified, credentialed members of the medical staff perform weight loss surgery. These procedures are covered by some health insurance plans.

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.

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.

When illness or surgery adversely affects a patient’s stomach or digestive system, we administer medication and nutrition through a PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) or a PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy) until you recover more completely.

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.

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.

Outpatient Services

Kindred Hospital Mansfield provides outpatient services to the community.

Available services include:

  • Wound Care Clinic
  • Diabetic Foot Clinic
  • Diagnostic Radiology Services
  • PICC Line Placement
  • Emergency Room Care

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.

Pharmacy Services

Our hospitals provide comprehensive inpatient pharmacy services where our pharmacists and pharmacy technicians collaborate with your care team to meet medication needs, educate you and your loved ones about medications and participate in multidisciplinary care planning sessions. 

Procedures

Surgical consultations and minor procedures can be done at our hospital. If necessary, you may be are transferred to another facility for special procedures.

Spiritual Care Services

The Case Management Department and each nursing unit has a list of spiritual services for you and your family should you wish for spiritual support. Your minister is welcome to visit at any time.
