LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kindred Healthcare is planning to expand its headquarters in downtown Louisville, and the project will likely result in big changes in the Theater Square area.
The Courier-Journal reports that Kindred has purchased nearly all the property at Theater Square across from The Brown hotel. Kindred's corporate offices are in a six-story building.
A couple of popular lunchtime spots will be affected by the expansion.
Kindred officials are mum on their plans and on such details as how many jobs might be added. Chris Poynter, a spokesman for Mayor Greg Fischer, says Kindred officials are in continuing talks with the city.
Kindred and subsidiaries operate more than 100 hospitals, nearly 100 nursing centers and numerous home-health, hospice and non-medical home-care facilities.
It has more than 2,000 employees based in Louisville.
