Key Benefits

All of these rehabilitation specialties are available to assist our patients in regaining levels of physiological functioning to help them return or adapt to levels of daily activities.

Swing Bed Services
Rondi VanBuren, Swing Bed program coordinator.

In addition to routine inpatient nursing care, patients who qualify, per Medicare guidelines, can receive short-term, skilled nursing care in the form of our Swing Bed Program.

This program is helpful to our community because it allows less acutely ill patients a chance to receive rehabilitation for a short period prior to discharge from our hospital.

This entitles the patient to the following Medicare-Certified Skilled Nursing benefits:
– Physical Therapy
– Speech Therapy
– Occupational Therapy
– IV Therapy
– Short Term Terminal Care
– Activities / Social Services
