Why Swing Bed?
Following a hospital stay related to surgery, illness or injury, some patients require further care to reach an optimal level of strength and wellness to safely return to their home or residential facility. The Swing Bed Program helps patients achieve this goal through hospital-based skilled nursing care and rehabilitation.
