Swing Bed Program
To serve the needs of smaller communities, Medicare has established coverage for "Swing Bed" programs. Swing Bed is the term used to describe a hospital room that can switch from in-patient acute care status to skilled care status. Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center is proud to offer a healthy environment where patients can recover with the guidance and help of their physicians, clinical and rehab teams.
Eligibility to participate in the program is for those whose needs cannot be met at home, but their condition no longer warrants an acute hospital stay. If you have had surgery or are treated for a medical condition along the front range or elsewhere, you can always come back to your hometown so that you can recover closer to home with the people you trust.
Here are a few examples of who could benefit from Swing Bed Rehab:
- Those needing care after orthopedic surgery, such as joint replacement or fractures
- Patients needing to continue or complete IV Therapy
- Patients recovering from an accident, injury, or illness
- Post-surgical patients
- Wound Care patients
The goal is to work with our patients who demonstrate a high rehabilitation potential. Our Swing Beds are perfect for those who need additional treatment before they can go home safely. Coverage varies with each insurance company; we will work on your behalf to determine coverage and availability.
During our patients stay they have access to the following amenities to include:
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Cable TV
- Private Rooms
- Meals prepared In-House
- Access to a Beautiful Courtyard with views of the Spanish Peaks
