Swing Bed Program
(Skilled Nursing Care Services)

Rehabilitative Care and Swing Bed Program are terms used for a treatment program that assists patients in returning to their home environment. PMC's Swing Bed Program is often the best option when acute care hospitalization is no longer necessary, but the patient is not physically able to go home.

Our caring staff will provide individualized treatment to assist the patient in reaching their maximum rehabilitation potential. The program is designed to help patients regain their independence and bring them back to a level of health so they can return home safely.
