Kindred to close 2nd Texas long-term care hospital

Louisville, Ky.-based Kindred Healthcare will close its transitional care hospital Medical Center Holocombe in Houston, making it Kindred's second Texas hospital to close within a month.

Kindred also plans to close Kindred Hospital Baytown (Texas). Kindred said it has decided to close both hospitals 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, Medical Center Holocombe has stopped accepting new admissions. Kindred expects to close the hospital by Oct. 14, but that date could change.

Kindred told the Texas Workforce Commission the hospital closure will affect 204 positions, according to Houston Business Journal.
