  • Other Services

    Kindred Hospital uses an interdisciplinary team approach to care that helps our patients return to the highest quality of life possible. In addition to our core services, we offer:

    Day Surgery

    Our hospital offers day surgery as a convenient, efficient alternative for patients who require elective surgery. Our Day Surgery Unit is staffed by skilled and compassionate professionals who understand the unique needs of our patients. Their focus is on your comfort and timely recovery.

    Outpatient Wound Care

    We feature an outpatient wound clinic where you can be seen by the same wound care physicians and specially trained nurses you saw as a patient. Our clinic accepts ambulatory, wheelchair and stretcher patients.

    Advanced Nutrition

    When illness or surgery adversely affects a patient’s stomach or digestive system, we administer medication and nutrition through a PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) or a PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy) until the patient recovers.

    Direct Admission

    For your convenience, our hospital accepts direct admissions from an extended care facility or skilled nursing center.

    Endoscopy

    An endoscope is a flexible, lighted tube that, when inserted into the digestive system, transmits images of the inside of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum, allowing the physician to carefully examine the lining of these organs. Our endoscopy team works to make you as comfortable as possible before, during and after the procedure.

    Pulmonary Rehabilitation

    The aim of our pulmonary rehab team is to determine your capacity for respiratory recovery and then help you reach your fullest level of function. Our rehab regimen includes testing, education, breathing retraining and nutritional counseling.

    Sleep Disorder Studies

    Left untreated, sleep disorders can lead to chronic fatigue and even serious accidents as a result of decreased alertness. Our interdisciplinary team of sleep specialists can analyze sleeping problems and offer restful solutions.

    Wound Management

    Our hospital features state-of-the-art care for chronic wounds – comprehensive care that may be delivered on an in- or outpatient basis by an interdisciplinary team that addresses nursing, dietary and rehabilitation treatment regimes.

    Physicians

    Your physician, a member of the medical staff, is responsible for the course of your clinical treatment. Your physician makes the necessary arrangements for laboratory X-rays, medications, special diets, and any other treatment or service. Kindred Hospital Dallas has approximately 200 physicians on staff from various specialties – cardiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, infectious disease, internal medicine, nephrology/dialysis, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pain management, pathology, plastic surgery, podiatry, psychiatry, pulmonology, radiology, vascular surgery, and urology.

    Our hospital medical director is board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine and critical care. Our other physician directors are some of the finest doctors in Dallas, and oversee our programs for the Intensive Care, Surgery, Nephrology, Infection Control, Wounds, and Pathology units.

    Nursing

    The Department of Nursing consists of skilled professionals working collaboratively with your physician and healthcare team members to maximize your progress. The department is overseen by a Chief Nursing Officer and an Assistant Director.

    Supervisors and ICU nurses are all certified in advanced cardiac life support. The goal for nursing is to provide quality care in a professional and compassionate manner. Care plans are created through the teamwork of nurses, physicians, therapists and specialists in other disciplines; services are provided around the clock to meet each individual’s unique needs.

    Respiratory Therapists

    Our team of respiratory therapists evaluates, treats and manages patients with cardiopulmonary problems, along with offering preventive care. Our professional and competent staff consists of registered and certified respiratory therapists who are on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Under the direction of a physician, respiratory therapy can guide you and your family through the processes of ventilator weaning, administering inhalant medications, nebulizer treatments and the like. Diagnostic studies available include such tests as oxygen saturation monitoring, EKGs, sleep studies and bronchoscopies.

    Radiology

    The Radiology Department plays an important role in diagnosing many illnesses. Advanced equipment enables the staff to provide a variety of X-rays and diagnostic services including X-rays, ultrasounds, Fluoroscope studies, and Doppler studies.

    Surgical Services

    Surgical services are available on an inpatient and outpatient basis. All of our surgery nurses are trained in advanced cardiac life support. Meals, if appropriate, are provided as well as complimentary parking. If an outpatient requires an overnight stay, comfortable sleep accommodations are available with continued nursing care. The area is equipped to supply a wide range of services including the following specialties:

    • general

    Pharmacy

    An integral part of the patient care team is our staff of licensed pharmacists. They prepare medications and provide special dietary supplements necessary for proper nutrition.

    Food Services and Nutrition Support

    The goal of our dietitian is to strive to meet your nutritional needs and prepare diets as ordered by your physician. The dietitian also performs periodic nutritional assessments and monitors your nutrition plan. Please make the dietitian aware of your food preferences and any food allergies you may have.

    A wide range of social services – including counseling, discharge planning, referrals to community agencies and securing medical equipment for home use – is provided. Family members are also invited to take part in counseling.

    Spiritual Services
