Louisville, Ky.-based Kindred Healthcare told the Texas Workforce Commission it plans to close its transitional care hospital in Baytown, Texas, according to the Houston Business Journal.

Kindred said it is closing Kindred Hospital Baytown to consolidate services between its other Houston-area facilities, including Kindred Hospital Bay Area in Pasadena, Texas.

According to a statement on the hospital's website, Kindred Hospital Baytown has stopped accepting new admissions. Kindred Healthcare expects to close the hospital by Oct. 3, but that date could change.

Kindred told the Texas Workforce Commission the closure will affect 37 jobs, according to the Houston Business Journal.
