  • 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:

    Brain Injury

    Whether a result of an accident, a seizure or a stroke, a brain injury can be as sudden as it is devastating. Our interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients with brain injuries takes the form of physical and speech therapy following detailed assessment plans and counseling designed to build self-esteem and help the patient attain the fullest life possible.

    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.

    Endoscopy

    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.

    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.

    Pulmonary Rehab

    The aim of our pulmonary rehab team is to determine your capacity for respiratory recovery and then help you reach your fullest level of function. Our rehab regimen includes testing, education, breathing retraining and nutritional counseling.

    Physicians

    Your clinical treatment is the chief responsibility of your physician. As a member of the medical staff, your physician makes the necessary arrangements for laboratory services, X-rays, medications, special diets and any other treatment or service.

    Our medical staff consists of more than 100 credentialed physicians with a wide range of specialties, including pulmonology, internal medicine, infectious diseases, general surgery, plastic surgery, physical medicine, gastroenterology, neurology, nephrology, pain management, orthopedics and urology. The hospital provides in-house physician care from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily to meet patients' needs after their primary physician has seen them for the day.

    Nursing

    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. A large majority of our RNs are advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) certified. Our RNs and licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) working in the SCU have critical care experience, all are ACLS certified and several are trained to insert PICC lines.

    Respiratory Therapists

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

    Radiology

    Using advanced equipment, the radiology staff performs a variety of X-rays and diagnostic services that play an important role in diagnosing many illnesses.

    Surgical Services

    Surgical services are available for patients around the clock. If necessary, for some specialty procedures, patients may be transferred to another facility.

    Laboratory

    Twenty-four hour laboratory services are provided by a certified laboratory, including blood banking and plasmaphoresis.

    Pharmacy

    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.

    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.

    Physical Therapy

    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.

    Occupational Therapy

    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.

    Speech Therapy

    When required, a licensed speech and language pathologist provides therapy to improve your speaking and swallowing skills as much as possible.

    Social Services

    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.

    Religious Support

    We offer a staff chaplain who will be glad to visit with you and your family upon request.
