Value of Partnership

Our business revolves around cultivating strong relationships.

Our customized client-specific approach provides a full range of service options, from limited assistance to creation of acute rehabilitation units, inpatient rehabilitation facilities or joint venture rehab facilities. 

It’s a Lot More Than Therapy Staffing

The Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services acute therapy program is NOT a therapy staffing approach. Our therapy approach is centered on making clinically appropriate decisions about patient care: WHAT therapy services patients receive, WHEN they receive them, WHO delivers them, and HOW positively patients experience them.

Our primary goal is to improve the wellbeing and physical abilities of each patient so that they might enjoy the highest quality of life possible – that is why the dedicated clinical teams with Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services create personalized therapy programs and goals that produce positive clinical outcomes, improve function and create a full recovery for patients. 

Our success is not only measured in the positive impact we have on our patients’ lives but also in high performance in key quality measures as measured by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in care settings across the care continuum.

The following highlights some of these benefits and how they could provide value to you and your organization:

Clinical Benefits: Our partnerships help hospitals realize clinical benefits through implementing proven best practices and providing training. We help our partners develop clinical protocols that are supported by the National Physician Advisory Board, National Clinical Advisory Board and National Nurses Advisory Board. Additionally, we educate the workforce on core processes, including CMS document and intake requirements, to streamline operations and implement programs that achieve compliance goals.

Financial Benefits: Our management expertise and business model offers partners proven improved performance and unique financial opportunities. We support our partners by sharing the financial risk of a new business entity and focusing on driving operating results and clinical quality.

Marketing and Referral Benefits: Our value proposition includes a focus on marketing and referrals to help rehabilitation hospitals expand their patient network. We provide a holistic marketing plan that analyzes the surrounding hospital patient metrics to identify business growth opportunities and deploy an intake team to respond to referrals and patient leads in a timely manner.

Design, Construction and Implementation Benefits: A facility’s appearance is a major factor in today’s competitive and evolving health services market. We have proven experience with the creation lifecycle of new rehabilitation hospitals and provide our partners with the tools to facilitate the design, construction, licensure and opening of state-of-the-art rehab hospital facilities.
