What is a Swing Bed?

Swing bed services are skilled nursing and rehabilitation services that are needed between a hospital admission and discharging to home. The patient would “swing” from an acute hospital bed to a skilled/swing bed where he or she will receive continued care while recovering from an injury, illness, or surgical procedure. Our skilled, highly trained, and knowledgeable staff deliver on-site care 24 hours a day to help patients succeed in the program and return home safely.

Services Include

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
