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:
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.
For your convenience, our hospital accepts direct admissions from an Extended Care Facility or Skilled Nursing Center.
Your clinical treatment is the chief responsibility of your physician. Your physician makes the necessary arrangements for laboratory services, X-rays, medications, special diets and any other treatment or service. Your medical staff team is composed of the attending physician, a wide range of consulting physicians, house physician staff, advanced registered nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
Nursing services are provided around the clock to meet each patient’s unique needs. Through the Department of Nursing, interdisciplinary care plans are created in conjunction with physicians, therapists and specialists in other disciplines.
Under the direction of the medical staff, our team of respiratory therapists evaluates, treats and manages patients with cardiopulmonary problems. The respiratory therapy services are provided 24-hours per day, seven days per 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.
An integral part of the patient care team is our staff of licensed pharmacists. In addition to being responsible for operating our onsite pharmacy, they are an integral part of the clinical team.
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.
Our physical therapists are an integral part of your rehabilitation process. Under the direction of your physician, they evaluate, treat and provide rehabilitation for muscular, skeletal, neurological and circulatory diseases.
The work of the occupational therapist helps promote independence in daily living skills such as feeding, bathing, dressing and grooming. The goal we strive toward is to increase your strength, endurance and coordination.
When required, a licensed speech and language pathologist provides therapy to improve your speaking and swallowing skills as much as possible.
A wide range of social services is available, including discharge planning, education on resources, referrals to community agencies and counseling.
Your spiritual needs are very important to us and we are available to assist with arranging chaplain visits. Your minister is also welcome to visit at any time.
The patient care team conference is a collaborative meeting to evaluate current therapies, set treatment goals and develop the discharge plan. The team consists of all clinical disciplines, nurse practitioner and the physician. If the patient and/or family would like to attend, please notify the social worker, the nurse practitioner or the physician.
