  • Other Services

    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:

    Advanced Nutrition

    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 Injury

    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.

    Case Management

    Our case management team coordinates and facilitates the transfer of patients to our hospital from referral sources such as skilled nursing centers and standard-care hospitals.

    Cystic Fibrosis Complications

    We treat complications – including lung infections, pneumonia and clogged airways – that arise from Cystic Fibrosis.

    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.

    Direct Admission

    For your convenience, our hospital accepts direct admissions from an extended care facility or skilled nursing center.

    Geriatric Services

    Our interdisciplinary team of geriatric specialists includes physicians, rehabilitation therapists, dietitians and mental-health professionals. Their objective is to help our senior patients live life to its fullest.

    Occupational Medicine

    Occupational medicine is devoted to prevention and management of occupational and environmental injury, illness and disability.

    Ventilator Weaning

    For many, gaining the strength necessary to be weaned from prolonged mechanical ventilation requires that rehabilitation, continued medical treatment and weaning occur together. During this process, an interdisciplinary team works with the patient addressing deficits in motor function, cognition, nutrition and communication.

    Wound Management

    Our hospital features state-of-the-art care for chronic wounds – comprehensive care that may be delivered on an in- or outpatient basis by an interdisciplinary team that addresses nursing, dietary and rehabilitation treatment regimes.

    Physicians

    Your physician, a member of the medical staff, is responsible for the course of your clinical treatment. Your physician will make the necessary arrangements for laboratory X-rays, medications, special diets, and any other treatment or service.

    Our medical staff consists of specialists in pulmonary care, infectious diseases, cardiology, and internal medicine, as well as general surgeons.

    Nursing

    The Department of Nursing strives to provide high quality nursing care. Care plans are created through the teamwork of nurses, physicians, therapists and specialists in other disciplines; services are provided around the clock to meet each individual’s unique needs.

    Respiratory Therapists

    Our team of respiratory therapists evaluates, treats and manages patients with cardiopulmonary problems, along with offering preventive care. All care is provided under the direction of the medical staff.

    Pharmacy

    Our staff of licensed pharmacists is an integral part of the overall patient care team. They prepare medications and provide special dietary supplements necessary for proper nutrition.

    Food Services and Nutrition Support

    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.

    Social Services

    To support you during and after hospitalization, a wide range of social services is provided, including counseling, discharge planning, referrals to community agencies, and assistance in securing medical equipment for use at home. Family members can also take part in counseling.

    Chaplain Services

    Our chaplains are available to assist you and your family with any spiritual needs or concerns you may have. Your minister is also welcome to visit at any time.
