What else should applicants know about us?

Community Involvement

At Kindred Healthcare, our community involvement is consistent with our company's principles and with our mission of customer service and quality care.

Through the Kindred Foundation, we are able to maximize resources to support worthwhile community activities – giving our locations the ability to participate at a higher level in non-profit organizations they already support in their communities across the United States.

While we support many worthwhile causes, we have focused our efforts on developing strong partnerships with three key healthcare-related, non-profit organizations that are closely aligned with our business – the Alzheimer's Association, the American Lung Association and the American Heart Association. These organizations have missions that are consistent with ours and through our involvement we can help them raise awareness about their important causes and aid these groups in funding research.

In addition, we have committed dollar-for-dollar matching funds for the Kindred locations that participate and fund-raise for events sponsored by these organizations and many others.
