  • The health and safety of our patients, team members and candidates is very important to us. We continue to provide care for our patients and families, as well as one another, and are therefore still taking applications and filling open positions. Due to the current situation related to the most recent coronavirus (COVID-19), we’re leveraging our digital capabilities to ensure we can continue to recruit top talent at Kindred. As your application progresses, you may be asked to conduct more interviews over the phone or to use one of our digital tools to help you through your recruitment journey. If so, one of our Talent Acquisition team members will explain the process and be available to answer any questions you might have. We thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we focus on keeping our patients and fellow team members safe.

  • KINDRED CAREGIVERS ARE RECOGNIZED AND CELEBRATED AT NATIONAL SUMMIT -- The 2019 Kindred Caregiver Summit: "Caring Through Our Core Values" took place in November in Louisville. Caregivers from Kindred sites across the country gathered for three days of learning and networking, with exercises, speakers and other activities designed to recognize and celebrate their dedication. In addition, two Kindred caregivers were named recipients of the Paul Diaz Caring Award for 2019. The award is presented annually to those who demonstrate an extraordinary level of skill, compassion and empathy while caring for patients and residents. The recipients are Jessie Sinosa, (pictured below) a Registered Nurse at Kindred Hospital Northland in Kansas City, Missouri, and Steven Solana, a Physical Therapist at the KRS-managed Brooks-Howell Home in Asheville, North Carolina.

Join Phillip in a rewarding career as a Physical Therapist.

Phillip, a physical therapist in an acute rehab unit, loves his job because of the progress he sees from his patients. He says working with patients in vulnerable states is the most rewarding because you help them gain enough independence to get home. “We’re always tying patient progress to function, and how it fits into their life at home,” explains Phillip. He says every day is hard work, but seeing patients go home with a smile on their face is what motivates him to go to work every day. 

Join Jennifer in a rewarding career as an RN.

As a Registered Nurse in a Kindred Hospital, Jennifer cares for a wide range of patients -- from critically ill patients who require specialized treatment and extended recovery time to patients recovering from a surgical procedure who require rehabilitation therapy to recover as fully as possible.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Chicago, IL) in September 2019.


    Walk in job fair. Interview with the nursing manager, and then had a peer interview with three other staff members in the same day. The panel also asked me several questions. Received a tour of the facility also.
