kept you here? I've been with Kindred Healthcare about 18 months.
And the reason I came and the reason that I have stayed, are the
same set of reasons. About 18 months ago, I had the misfortune of
losing my dad and my father-in-law, in the course of about four
months. And it was very painful. And after that experience, I
filled a very strong movement to want to come back to the four
walls of a hospital, but not just any hospital, a longterm acute
care hospital that was servicing the patients and the family
members who are going through the same problems that I had just
experienced personally. It has been incredibly rewarding to know
that I can take my own experience and apply that to those who need
me on a day-to-day basis. And for that, I feel very blessed and
happy to be here. Benefits & Recognition Our goal is to offer
