When you’re not quite ready to go home

Swing Bed is a benefit through Medicare and most primary insurance carriers for patients who no longer need inpatient acute care services, but require additional rehab and/or nursing services.

  • Are recovering from major joint surgery
  • Are recovering from an extensive procedure

  • Are in need of strength training and rehabilitation after a prolonged hospital stay

A team of healthcare professionals works with you during your stay. This team includes:

  • Nursing

  • Occupational therapy
  • Pharmacy
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Recreation therapy
  • Nutrition
  • Social work

The team works with you to manage your pain and restore you to your normal level of activity.
