Transitional Care Program

Our Transitional Care Program, previously known as Swing Bed, is a Medicare covered hospital-based program for patients who no longer need inpatient care, and would benefit from rehabilitation and/or skilled nursing care prior to going home.

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

As you prepare to leave the Transitional Care Program, 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
