Swing Bed Program

Swing Bed (or Skilled Nursing Care) is a Medicare program designed to provide additional inpatient care to those needing extra time to heal or strengthen. Our Swing Bed program offers a much needed service for patients who no longer need acute hospital care, but do need skilled nursing or therapy care to complete their recovery. Our program offers patients a seamless transition from acute to follow up care, 24 hour skilled nursing care, comfort and familiarity of a local hospital and near to loved ones and friends.
