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.
