Transitional Care Hospital Careers
As the most acute level of care in Kindred’s continuum, we play a vital role in the recovery process for chronic, critically ill and medically complex patients who require acute care and rehabilitation over an extended period. We’re very proud of our clinical outcomes. In 2015, Kindred’s Transitional Care Hospitals discharged more than 68% of patients home or to a lower setting of care. From 2011 to 2015, we reduced rehospitalization rates by 3.8%.
In this setting, our caregivers:
- Provide aggressive, specialized interdisciplinary care to medically complex patients who require extended recovery times
- Deliver quality care and service to our highest acuity patients
- Require high energy
- Learn quickly and pay close attention to patient conditions that change daily
- Collaborate well with the entire team for each care episode
