The goal is to help patients return home and live independently or with the help of community resources. To qualify for this Medicare-sponsored program, patients much have a three-midnight inpatient stay at any hospital and must require skilled care such as IV therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech therapy. 

Swing Bed/Skilled Care services at CHCS include:

Rehabilitation, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and/or speech therapy

Round-the-clock nursing care


Discharge planning team

Weekly meetings with patients and family

Nutritional guidance and counseling
