    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I've seen both sides of the LTACH marketing and sales aspect of patient assessment and work flow and the support that is needed to traverse the complexities of helping families to get to the highest level of post-hospital care which I am a very strong fan of. Kindred's approach is a full on team effort, no Prima-Donna's watching everyone else pull the load, they are really invested in the entire process and extend an impressive effort to assist the families and patients.

    Cons

    Really bad Yelp reviews, One Star, really Yelp!!!...it's unconscionable how Yelp has deterred many families from getting the highest level of care for the sickest patients and has put a down the hardest working nurses and doctors and clinical team I've had the priviledge of working with. The only con I can complain about is the unfair reputation that yelp has put upon this group tha serves with dignity and steadfast perserverence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, your staff does appreciate the kindness and support you so generously extend! It's time for the 401K match is reinstated.

    Pros

    Very team-oriented facility. Wages/Compensation are right where they should be and increase annually at a fair rate. The company also has some great benefits such as tuition reimbursement allowing for growth within the company at an ease to my wallet :)

    Cons

    Other departments could do more to improve the overall cleanliness and conditions of the facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, I really enjoy working here!

    Pros

    Work closely with all staff from every department. Excellent open door policy. Responsive senior leadership.
    Company values excellent patient care and ernestly works toward consistant, positive outcomes.

    Cons

    Sadly, our location is closing as our Host Hospital did not renew our contract. I believe we were left with too little time to find another host hospital in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work with the many other Kindred Hospitals around the country.
