Kindred Healthcare Nursing Homes

Kindred Healthcare Nursing HomesKindred 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.

Medicare Inspections

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
  • Hospice
  • 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.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
