Getting You Closer to Home

Extended Care Conveniently Closer to Home

Following a hospital stay related to surgery, injury, stroke, or illness, some patients require additional care to reach an ideal level of strength and wellness before returning home. Baptist's Swing Bed Program helps patients achieve this goal through skilled nursing care and rehabilitation.

Patients receive continuous care from a caring and compassionate nursing staff. Daily activities are also planned to meet each patient's interests.

Gain the Independence You Desire With Individualized Care

Baptist's expert team works with each patient to create a unique, multi-disciplinary treatment plan. We'll help you gain strength and independence you desire before returning to your home and family.

Daily therapy is centered on self-care and body strengthening, which will help you prepare for returning home. Our team's treatment plan focuses on helping you reach your optimal level of activity.

Every effort is focused on independence. As a Swing Bed patient, you will be encouraged to do as much as you can for yourself.
