Swing Bed Services
Award-Winning Treatment in Henry County, OH
What is Swing Bed Services?
The Swing Bed Services program provides short-term rehabilitative services
in a hospital setting. The Swing Bed Services program makes available
the full range of Henry County Hospital’s services to its patients
and emphasizes an aggressive rehabilitation and medical program that helps
build strength and endurance.
The Swing Bed Services Difference
This program allows patients to stay close-to-home while still receiving
the best possible care. Patients will appreciate the continuity of care;
having access to the same staff who treated the patient during their hospital
stay, as well as the convenience of having instant access to necessary
services in one location. Another benefit of the program is the Swing
Bed Services Coordinator who works closely with patients and their families
on admission and discharge planning.
