Fairfield Memorial Hospital is excited to announce the introduction of Swing Bed services, a valuable new option for patients transitioning between hospital care and a longer-term care plan.

Swing Bed services, also known as in-hospital rehab, offer numerous benefits for patients who require additional support following hospitalization. This service ensures patients receive the necessary care and therapy to achieve a successful recovery, bridging the gap between hospital care and rehab care. The program is designed to promote healing, improve functional abilities and enhance the overall quality of life.

“We are honored to be your trusted healthcare provider and are committed to offering services that meet the evolving needs of our community,” said Rachel Ewing, MSN, RN, FMH Chief Nursing Officer. “Our new Swing Bed services exemplify our dedication to providing comprehensive care closer to home, allowing patients to recover in a familiar and supportive environment.”

Key features of the Swing Bed services include:

  • Personalized Care Plans: Each patient receives an individualized care plan tailored to their specific needs and goals.
  • Multidisciplinary Approach: A team of skilled healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and social workers, collaborate to provide holistic care.
  • Seamless Transition: Patients experience a smooth transition from acute care to rehabilitation, ensuring continuity of care.
  • Comfort and Convenience: Receiving care in the hospital where they were initially treated allows patients to remain in a familiar environment, close to family and friends.

Fairfield Memorial Hospital’s Swing Bed services are designed to cater to a wide range of medical and rehabilitation needs, including post-surgical recovery, stroke rehabilitation, wound care and more. This service is ideal for patients who are not yet ready to return home but no longer require the intensive care provided in an acute hospital setting.
