Acute Rehabilitation Swing Bed

What Is A “Swing Bed”?

Many people are unaware that we also offer rehabilitation for the acute and subacute inpatient setting! In fact, our “Swing Bed” program is designed to provide high-level rehabilitation services for individuals with rehabilitation needs that extend beyond an “acute” hospital stay (72 hours).

What Is “Swing Bed” Care?

In many cases patients are not ready to return to typical living environment following a hospital stay. That’s when our swing bed program can help! We offer dynamic individualized medical care for those who need rehabilitation.

Who Should Come?

You can qualify for rehabilitation as a swing bed patient if you have spent three or more midnights as an acute in-patient in any hospital. Common reasons to utilize these services include, but are not limited to:

  • Joint Replacement Surgery
  • Cardiac Surgery
  • Motor Vehicle Accident
  • Stroke or Brain Injury
  • Injuries Related to Falls

Who Pays For “Swing Bed” Care?

Medicare part A generally pays for “Swing Bed” care, as do Medicaid and many commercial insurance policies. Our admission staff is here to verify your benefits. For more information call Meg Allred at 928-684-5421.
