Swing Bed

Ozark Health’s Swing Bed option is a sub-acute program for patients who are ready to be released from the hospital, but need extra care in a medical setting before they are ready to go home again.

To fill this need for a more convenient rehabilitation for patients who have been discharged from a hospital but still require medical care, our Swing Bed Program has proven to provide quality care close to home. Ozark Health can employ 25 beds, as needed, to provide the best care to patients. 

Patients remain in a hospital setting where they receive expert nursing care and scheduled daily activities to speed their recovery.
