  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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 active medical staff includes internists, pulmonologists, and a full range of specialties share a goal of providing our patients with the best medical care available.

    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.

    Respiratory Therapists

    Under the direction of the medical staff, our team of respiratory therapists evaluates, treats and manages patients with cardiopulmonary problems. They also provide preventive care.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Case Management

    Case Management works closely with patients and families to make the admission process as smooth as possible. Clinical case managers help to monitor care during the hospitalization. At discharge they ensure patients and families have access to appropriate equipment and community resources.

    Chaplain Services

    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.
