About Us

Kindred Hospital South Florida – Coral Gables is a 53-bed Joint Commission accredited, Medicare-certified, long-term, acute care facility. The hospital provides care for medically complex patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The primary market area is Miami Dade County, although patients are referred from outside this area.

We work closely with referring facilities to assure patients referred to our care are accommodated efficiently and effectively. Medically complex patients are typically referred from intensive care units, medical-surgical or telemetry units of short-term acute care facilities, nursing homes and physicians’ offices. Our hospital offers a highly qualified and experienced interdisciplinary team of clinicians to optimize the care and recovery of our patients. Kindred Hospital South Florida – Coral Gables is centrally located in the beautiful culturally diverse area of Coral Gables, Florida, which is easily accessible from all major highways.

Care Services

Kindred Hospitals use a multidisciplinary team approach to care that helps our patients return to the highest quality of life possible. Our areas of patient care services include:

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.

Brain Injury

Brain injuries can be as sudden as they are devastating. Our interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients with brain injuries includes all aspects of rehabilitation and recovery.

Diagnostic Imaging

Skilled and certified technicians operate our imaging equipment, and we make every effort to perform the testing in as prompt and as convenient a manner as possible.  Kindred Hospital South Florida – Coral Gables has arrangements with local hospitals for imaging studies not available onsite.

Dialysis

Our interdisciplinary team of dialysis specialists includes physicians, nurses, technicians and dietitians who strive to help you meet the challenges of dialysis with comfort and dignity, and continue to live a full, active life.

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.

Geriatric Services

Our interdisciplinary team of geriatric specialists includes physicians, rehabilitation therapists, dietitians and mental-health professionals. Their objective is to help our senior patients live life to it’s fullest.

Pulmonary Rehab

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.

Physicians

Your clinical treatment is the chief responsibility of your physician. As a member of the medical staff, your physician makes the necessary arrangements for laboratory services, X-rays, medications, special diets and any other treatment or service. Kindred facilities in South Florida have a comprehensive medical staff representing all specialties.
