Transitional care, also known as swing bed or skilled care, is a Medicare benefit offering you or your loved one a comprehensive, skilled level program following an “Acute Care Inpatient” hospital stay (minimum stay of three consecutive midnights within a 30 day period).
As part of our transitional care program, you will be able to focus on your rehabilitation after an acute care stay. Our program gives you an opportunity to work with a multidisciplinary team to increase your strength and regain your independence.
