Kindred Healthcare is one of the largest nursing home and healthcare providers in the U.S. They own 224 nursing facilities and 118 long-term acute care hospitals in 28 states, plus rehabilitation centers and hospitals. Their headquarters are based out of Louisville, Kentucky.
Kindred Healthcare has nursing homes in more than half the states, dotting the western U.S. coastline from Washington down through California. The eastern seaboard is also covered with locations from Maine, Virginia and all the way to Florida. The Midwest is also has many locations throughout Wisconsin, Illinois and over in Ohio and Indiana. Of course, there are plenty of locations in their home state of Kentucky, with 18 locations there and 8 in neighboring Tennessee.
Although Kindred Healthcare may be one of the largest chains in the U.S., their Medicare rating leaves much to be desired. 6 locations in their home state of Kentucky that are part of the Medicare program, all of them have 2 or less overall ratings, well below average. 7 in California are also all 2 or fewer stars, as are 7 in Wisconsin and 3 in Tennessee.
Kindred Healthcare has the majority of their service centers dedicated to long-term or nursing care. However, they are a diversified healthcare provider with many types of medical services.
- Long-term Acute-Care Hospitals
- Assisted Living Facilities
- Home Care
- Rehabilitation Services
Kindred Healthcare has been subjected to many lawsuits over the years. Kindred nursing homes in California have been part of a class action suit in regard to their lack of staffing in their facilities, citing poor care for those with pressure sores, unsanitary living conditions and inadequate response to medical concerns. They were also part of an abuse lawsuit in Massachusetts where there was reportedly repeated heinous sexual and physical abuse against residents.
