Swing Bed Program

Lawrence Healthcare offers the Swing Bed program as an alternative to discharge from an acute care bed. The facility does not house these “beds” in separate facilities. In most cases, the patient remains in the same room used for their hospitalization.

Length of stay is determined by your needs. When your skilled needs have been met, you will be ready for discharge. During your visit, the discharge planner will visit with you and your family regarding continued care. The care team and your physician will be involved in making recommendations. Then, if you need help in arranging continued care, we will help you make arrangements, if you like
