Careers at Kindred Healthcare
We understand that employees are central to creating a culture of caring that emphasizes teamwork, professionalism, and dedication. We strive to promote from within and we are committed to providing the resources you need to fulfill your new role.
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.
Senior management keeps bringing in younger workers to replace the more senior employees and they know nothing about the long term healthcare industry.
1st ten years were good but then leadership changed:
Pay was good.
Pay was good but people were promoted just because they were liked not because of knowledge or skills. Benefits were below average. Senior management was more worried about their own stock value than any employee’s well being.
