What is a Swing Bed?

The Swing Bed Program at Madelia Health provides short term rehabilitation services for patients with skilled needs. Patients most appropriate for swing bed are those in a transitional phase, transitioning from an acute hospital setting to home or a nursing home setting.

  • Daily Occupational therapy to meet self-care goals

  • Daily Physical therapy to improve strength and mobility

  • Specialized wound care

  • IV Therapy

  • 24-hour nursing staff and emergency department
  • In-house pharmacy

  • Discharge planning

These services are individualized for each of our patients based on needs and personal goals.

Services are covered by Medicare and private insurance plans. Coverage is the same from facility to facility.  (Please note that each insurance plan is different.)
