Swing Bed

What is a Swing Bed Program?

The PCMC Swing Bed Program is an extension of the hospital stay to help patients heal and gain strength so they can regain independence and return home.

Patients who are recovering and need extended care or rehabilitation may be eligible for this program. Medicare requires that a patient must have a qualifying three-midnight acute care stay within the last thirty days to be eligible for Swing Bed care.

Patients who are in a different acute care facility can transfer to the PCMC Swing Bed Program. This allows patients to heal close to their homes & families.
