Swing Bed Program

Swing Bed is a Medicare covered hospital-based program for patients who no longer need inpatient care, but are not ready to go home and need some rehabilitation and/or nursing care.

Patients leave the hospital when therapy goals are met or in-hospital skilled nursing care is no longer needed. The length of stay varies based each patient's needs.

As you prepare to leave the hospital, Patient and Family Services will assist with the following, if needed:

  • Arrange for home-based services
  • Arrange for alternate living arrangements
  • Coordinate other community services and family help
  • Purchase of home medical equipment and supplies
