Kindred Behavioral Health (KBH) is now part of the Lifepoint Health family, creating Lifepoint Behavioral Health. Combining the partnership expertise you trust from Kindred with Lifepoint’s diversified health network has helped us to optimize our partnership approach. This enables our partners to successfully meet the behavioral health need across their care continuum and throughout their local community.
We understand there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to patient care or partnership, which is why we offer a variety of customized contract management and joint-venture partnership solutions to help meet the specific needs of the hospital and community.
As a leading behavioral health partner, we offer unique tools, resources and expertise to help our partners meet the unique needs within their local community.
As one of the largest behavioral health providers in the nation, we have access to both local and national quality data, best practices and standards to help individual hospitals provide industry-leading care.
Partners gain access to critical behavioral health talent, including psychiatrists, counselors and other specialized mental health all focused on achieving the best possible clinical quality.
Additionally, partners gain access to extensive employee training, educational pathways and support groups. This allows their teams to leverage their care offerings while improving the engagement and satisfaction of their employees. This generates higher retention rates and lower costs for the hospital.
As one of the leading behavioral health providers in the nation, we help partner hospitals scale their service offerings through our robust supply chain, extensive peer groups and proven best practices.
Lifepoint has decades of experience across the care continuum – from pre-acute to post-acute. We have firsthand understanding of how each service line is interconnected and how to best optimize operations for improved performance.
