Kindred Healthcare has opened a long-term acute care hospital in Illinois, US.

Kindred Hospital Springfield is designed to provide aggressive interdisciplinary care to medically complex patients who need extended recovery time.

The 50-bed freestanding long-term acute care hospital includes a high acuity hospital unit, dialysis room, rehabilitation gym and bariatric rooms with ceiling lifts.

The healthcare centre also includes negative-pressure isolation rooms and telemetry equipment to monitor 16 patients.

Kindred Healthcare president and CEO Paul J Diaz said the company will provide hospital services to the residents of the Springfield area, who can benefit from the continuum of post-acute care services and clinical expertise.
