The Rehabilitation Hospital of Montana - Billings, MT

The Rehabilitation Hospital of Montana is a triventure partnership between three organizations: Kindred Healthcare, St. Vincent Healthcare and Billings Clinic. Our 34-bed facility offers all-private rooms and treats patients who are recovering from conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury.

The Rehabilitation Hospital is the first and only free standing inpatient hospital in Montana and is designed to meet the growing clinical needs of Billings and the entire state of Montana. Our rehabilitation programs provide ongoing care and specialized treatment to patients throughout their recovery journey. We offer customized, intense rehabilitation tailored to the individual needs of those recovering from stroke, brain injury, neurological conditions, trauma, spinal cord injury, amputation, and orthopedic injury. The Rehabilitation Hospital of Montana strives to maximize the health, function, and quality of life of those we serve through comprehensive physical medicine and rehabilitation programs.

With nearly 30 standalone inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) across a dozen states, Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services (KHRS) is a partner of choice for many major hospital systems in the creation and success of joint-venture operations that outperform in both clinical and financial outcomes. We bring proven rehabilitation management and services expertise that benefits our partners as well as the nearly 50,000 IRF patients we see each year who seek to recover and get home quickly from any of a number of conditions, including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injury, neurological conditions, amputation and trauma.

IT'S SIMPLE. You want to work in a hospital setting where you are valued and appreciated - where you receive respect from your superiors and co-workers as well as the patients we serve.

You want to be challenged by your job without being overwhelmed by it. You want to play an instrumental role in helping a patient recover, sometimes against strong odds, and go home. What you want is Kindred Healthcare.

Our mission is to promote healing, provide hope, preserve dignity and produce value for each patient, resident, family member, customer, employee and shareholder we serve. Join us!
