Swing Bed Program


Sometimes a patient has improved to the point of no longer needing acute hospital care, but is not quite ready to return home. Swing Beds are designed for patients who have been hospitalized, for a minimum of 3 days here or at another facility, but need further care before they are ready to go home or to another care setting. The term SWING means that the hospital may clarify beds for acute care or skilled care.

Swing Bed patients are here to receive such services as physical or occupational therapies, long term IV antibiotics, specialized wound care and other skilled services. Patients also receive therapeutic recreation while in the Swing Bed program.

Contact the swingbed coordinator at swingbed@wardmemorial.com or 432-943-2511 for more information.
