If you or your loved one need short-term, skilled health care services, Columbus Community Hospital’s Swing Bed program is here to help. The program is designed for qualifying patients who are discharged from the hospital, yet have a continued need for medical care.
The goal of the Swing Bed program is to provide you with the best therapy and nursing care in the shortest time possible. We want to help you feel better so you can return to your permanent living situation as soon as possible.
The Swing Bed program is available to qualifying patients — typically those who have completed a three-night inpatient stay. These patients no longer qualify for acute care services, but are often not ready to return home.
The program provides care for patients who may have undergone surgery, experienced trauma, had an acute illness, require a wound vac, or need extended intravenous (IV) therapy.
Patients may also qualify for the program because of a new diagnosis or medical condition that requires additional education.
Medicare, Medicare Advantage and additional health insurance plans are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
CCH’s Swing Bed program is designed to provide a quiet and peaceful environment, allowing you to get the rest you need so you can recover and return home.
The program comprises beds on the second floor of the hospital.
When you are admitted into the Swing Bed program, you receive the following benefits:
Patients admitted to the Swing Bed program usually stay an average of 10 days or less.
