Kindred Healthcare Completes Acquisition of Two Behavioral Health Hospitals in Texas


Kindred Healthcare, LLC announced it has completed its acquisition of the WellBridge Greater Dallas and WellBridge Fort Worth behavioral health hospitals.

WellBridge Greater Dallas and WellBridge Fort Worth provide a full continuum of inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services to senior and adult populations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area and the greater North Texas region. Each hospital has 48 licensed beds and both are leaders in behavioral healthcare, with proven records of providing exceptional behavioral health services and superior clinical outcomes. Kindred plans to continue using the WellBridge name.

“Acquiring these hospitals is an important milestone for Kindred, advancing our objective of expanding our behavioral health services,” said Rob Marsh, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Kindred Behavioral Health (“KBH”). “We welcome WellBridge’s employees and look forward to working with them to provide leading, empathetic care to more patients with behavioral health issues.”

Kindred is dedicated to providing hope, healing and recovery for the most medically complex patients – a mission that naturally extends to those suffering from behavioral health illnesses. Through KBH, Kindred is focused on addressing the unmet need for high-quality, specialized and compassionate behavioral health services, including crisis stabilization for acute mental health and substance use disorders; detoxification from alcohol, opiates, cocaine and other drugs; suicidal thoughts or actions, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder; and many other behavioral health illnesses.
