In-Patient Rehabilitation

In-Patient Rehabilitation Swing Bed Program:

The  Swing Bed Program provides in-patient rehabilitation services for individuals with needs that extend beyond an “acute” hospital stay (72 hours). Swing Bed is 24 hour skilled nursing care plus the benefit of “rehabilitation” therapies to help patients transition to home or a long term care facility.  As a Swing Bed patient you will receive physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy as indicated after surgery, illness or accident.

Swing Bed helps prepare you for the transition from hospital to home. It gives each patient time to heal and adjust before returning to everyday life. Our main purpose will be to provide you the necessary care through a collaborative team approach, facilitating therapists and skilled nursing to obtain the best possible outcome.
