Kindred Hospital uses an interdisciplinary team approach to care that helps our patients return to the highest quality of life possible. In addition to our core services, we offer:
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 the patient recovers.
Brain injuries can be as sudden as they are devastating. Our interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients with brain injuries includes all aspects of rehabilitation and recovery. We can provide the medical care and rehabilitation needed to progress to a more intensive level of therapy.
For your convenience, our hospital accepts direct admissions from an Emergency Room, Skilled Nursing Facility, physician office, or home. We have a clinical liaison that can provide an onsite assessment to help facilitate admission. For any questions regarding an admission, please call our 24-hour referral line at 888-566-1234.
An endoscope is a flexible, lighted tube that, when inserted into the digestive system, transmits images of the inside of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum, 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.
The goal of our pulmonary rehabilitation team is to determine your capacity for respiratory recovery and to help you reach your highest level of function. Our rehabilitation regimen includes testing, education, breathing retraining and nutritional counseling. Our program is guided by a pulmonologist who directs the team of nurses, respiratory therapists and physical therapists daily with the plan of care.
Your physician is responsible for the course of your clinical treatment. Your physician will make the necessary arrangements for laboratory work, X-rays, medications, special diets, and any other treatment or service. The hospital maintains a comprehensive medical staff with primary care and multi-specialty consulting physicians available for patient services. The medical staff includes specialists in: cardiology, critical care, ENT, gastroenterology, general surgery, infectious disease, internal medicine, nephrology, neurology, physiatry, plastic surgery, psychology and pulmonary medicine. The medical staff is supported by a House Physician Program which provides in-house physicians who respond to immediate patient needs when the primary physicians are not in the facility. The current medical staff consists of physicians serving the Community Health Network and St. Francis Health Network.
Nursing services are provided around the clock to meet each patient’s unique needs. Through the Department of Nursing, care plans are created in conjunction with physicians, therapists and specialists in other disciplines.
Under the direction of a pulmonologist, a team of respiratory therapists evaluates, treats and manages patients with cardiopulmonary problems. These services include ventilator management and weaning, tracheotomy management, endotracheal tube management and airway decannulation. They also provide care for conditions such as COPD, emphysema, pneumonia and lung diseases. We have respiratory therapists in house 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Using advanced equipment, the radiology staff performs a variety of X-rays and diagnostic services that play an important role in diagnosing many illnesses.
Operating under the direction of a physician, the laboratory is responsible for conducting any tests that are ordered. Our advanced equipment performs tests accurately and quickly, with results available on the same day whenever possible.
An integral part of the patient care team is our staff of licensed pharmacists. They prepare medications and provide special dietary supplements necessary for proper nutrition. We have a pharmacy in house so we can provide on-site medication management.
The goal of our dietitian is to strive to meet your nutritional needs and prepare diets as ordered by your physician. The dietitian also performs periodic nutritional assessments and monitors your nutrition plan. Please make the dietitian aware of your food preferences and any food allergies you may have.
A wide range of social services – including counseling, discharge planning, referrals to community agencies and securing medical equipment for home use – is provided. Family members are also invited to take part in counseling.
There are chaplains on standby to assist you and your family with any needs or concerns. Your minister is also welcome to visit at any time.
