Mount Carmel – Wisconsin’s Largest Nursing Home – Wants to Shut Down!

Kindred Transitional Care

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has informed residents and family members of about the request that Kindred Transitional Care and Rehabilitation-Milwaukee in Greenfield, formerly known as Mount Carmel, has registered recently seeking permission to close down.


According to the letter released on October 3, “(The facility’s) size, age and design is no longer consistent with the current consumer preferences and needs for today’s health care delivery system.”

Largest Nursing Homes

Mount Carmel happens to be one of the largest nursing homes in Milwaukee area, and therefore, it’s not an easy decision to make. Since the facility is leased from Ventas, the decision was made with mutual consent of the two organizations.


The relocation plan still needs to be filed with DHS and the facility cannot shut down for at least 120 days after the plan’s approval. If approved, it will affect at least 240 patients and 400 employees at the nursing care home. With company’s assistance, the staff will meet families of the patients to discuss placement options.
