• About Our Hospital

    Kindred Hospital Greensboro is a 124-bed transitional care hospital located off I-40/85 at exit 126 (Martin Luther King Highway) or just off I-29. We provide specialized long-term acute care to pulmonary and ventilator-dependent patients who are unable to recover completely in the traditional short-term acute care setting. We also serve patients with other system failures or those who need a long rehabilitation process. Our focused treatment results in a very high success rate of weaning patients off the ventilator. We partner with more than 100 hospitals throughout the Carolinas and Virginia to continue the care.

    Kindred Hospital Greensboro is licensed for 124 beds - 101 are hospital (acute) and 23 are long-term care. Our units and capacities include:

    • Intensive Care Unit - six-bed ICU. This unit functions as an entry unit for patients being transferred from other referring hospital ICUs. This unit also serves patients from other units who develop critical conditions requiring specific monitoring.
    • 4 West Critical Care Step-Down Unit - 24-bed step-down unit from our ICU. This unit maintains 12 telemetry beds and has a primary function to provide aggressive diagnostic evaluation and weaning strategies.
    • 3 East Unit - 30-bed medical-surgical unit. Final weaning is performed on this unit. Most patients are ventilator-dependent or have been and are in various stages of weaning and/or other lower level respiratory care support in anticipation of discharge either to home or a lower level of care.
    • 3 West Unit - 23-bed long-term care unit. Most patients in this unit are ventilator-dependent. But some non-vented long-term care is provided for other types of respiratory conditions or geriatric disease processes. Limited IV therapy can be provided on this unit.
    • 2nd Floor Medical Surgical Unit - 41-bed medical-surgical unit. Like the 3 East unit, final weaning may also be performed on this unit; however, this unit is used to care for shorter-term typical medical or surgical patients who are non-vented. This unit offers a unique opportunity to learn respiratory care and gain experience.
    • Surgical Services - two-bed preoperative holding/procedure suite; one operative suite; two-bed postanesthesia care unit. Various procedures are performed here including endoscopy, general surgery, podiatry and urology. Inpatient as well as outpatient surgical services are provided by this department.
    • PACU - two-patient monitoring in the recovery phase. Typical staffing is two RNs and one RT. The staff is responsible for obtaining and placing patients in the holding area.
    • Transport Team - out-of-facility transport service. This team transports ventilator-dependent or critically ill patients in and out of the facility. Typical staffing is one RN and one RT.
