Swing Bed

Our hospital provides Swing Bed services, allowing patients who require more skilled care after a recent hospital stay or surgery to continue receiving medical services and physical or occupational therapy onsite. We can provide the comfort and familiarity of being in your local hospital, seeing your local physician, and being convenient to loved ones and friends. Through focused care, during clinical services and discharge planning we help each patient reach their highest level of functioning.

Examples of patients that would be appropriate for our program are:

  • Those needing care after orthopedic surgery, such as joint replacement or fractures
  • Patients needing to continue or complete IV therapy
  • Patients recovering from an accident, injury or illness
  • Post-surgical patients
