Cedar County Memorial Hospital Swing Bed program

Home, it is the place where we all want to be. Sometimes, we are not able to return home after an acute hospital stay and we need a little help getting back there. That's where Cedar County Memorial Hospital's Swing Bed program comes in. At CCMH our swing bed program allows you to be close to friends, family, and neighbors all while receiving the care you need before returning to the place where our heart is, home.

What is a swing bed program?

A swing bed program is a service that some rural hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals offer that allows a patient to transition from an acute hospital stay to skilled nursing care without leaving the hospital environment. This allows a patient to keep receiving services in the hospital even though acute care is no longer required.

How can this benefit me and my family?

The swing bed program allows patients to stay close to home while still receiving the best of care. It allows you to recover from surgery, illness, or injury right here in your own community. Close to the people that mean the most to you. With the high cost of travel these days, our swing bed program offers you exceptional skilled care in a hospital environment while permitting your family and friends convenient visitation during your stay.
