Kindred expansion to add up to 500 jobs

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kindred Healthcare is planning an expansion at its Louisville headquarters that would add up to 500 jobs.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1sgobvu) reports the plans were disclosed in Frankfort on Thursday as the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority met.

Kindred executives had indicated earlier this year that an expansion was needed, but it was unclear whether jobs would be added in Louisville or at another location.

The plans come as officials in Metro Louisville have been trying to boost the number of professional positions in the city and strengthen investment in downtown.
