We employ and provide care to people from all walks of life. As an organization, we are committed to promoting healing, providing hope, preserving dignity and producing value with an inclusive workforce in which diversity is leveraged, respected, and reflective of the patients, family members, customers and team members we serve.

Our Mission:

To help patients reach their highest potential for health and healing with intensive medical and rehabilitative care through a compassionate patient experience.

Better Connections & Relationships

Better Connections & Relationships

Inclusion inevitably leads to better connections among employees, which leads to stronger connections with patients and their family members. By intentionally building relationships of trust and respect within our organization between managers and employees and employees and their peers, we are able to serve our patients with health equity.

The end result is a fair, equitable, healthy and high-performing organization where employees and patients feel accepted and respected and are able to better connect with their surroundings and each other.

Kindred Healthcare Inclusion Council

Kindred Healthcare Inclusion Council

In 2016, we formed Kindred Healthcare’s Inclusion Council to help realize our goal of promoting an inclusive environment that actively values diversity among all our team members, patients and families, and the broader community. Advising senior leadership, the Council helps promote and advance our inclusivity efforts on a day-to-day basis while celebrating and bringing to bear a wide range of opinions and ideas.
