Swing Bed Services

How Swing Bed Works

After an injury or illness that requires hospitalization, it is sometimes necessary to have skilled nursing care. Our Swing Bed Program allows you to recover faster and closer to home while being cared for by our expert nursing and rehabilitation team in a hospital setting.

We understand the importance of Transitional Healthcare. Our Swing Bed Program provides the opportunity to ensure the quality and improve the success of a patient’s recovery process. Our Quality Care Management Team would like to discuss if this option is right for your needs.
