What is Swingbed?
Swingbed is a subacute program for Medicare patients who are ready for discharge under Medicare criteria but need a little extra care before they go home. You will remain in a regular hospital bed on the Swingbed Unit. Rehabilitative services are the primary focus behind the Swingbed mission, although some patients come for brief medical management.
The Swingbed mission is functional restoration of both physical and psychological being to achievement of the highest level of functional improvement within the constraints of resources available to the patient.
- The Swingbed Medical Director is Dr. Don Blackwood. The Medical Director will maintain close clinical consultation with the attending physician.
- Our Swingbed Director is Brad Cooper. The Swingbed Medical Director directs the weekly interdisciplinary team meeting to oversee quality patient care.
- Patient, family/caregiver, involvement is an integral part to achieve the highest standard of care.
