Swing Bed Patient Portal Make a Payment

What is Swing Bed? Think of a swing. This program “swings” according to the level of care you need. If you have had an inpatient stay of 3 days at any hospital, and you cannot go home right away, you qualify for the swing bed program.  You “swing” from acute care services to skilled nursing services, and then back home when you are ready.

St. Vincent’s Swing Bed program is approved by Medicare. It is used as an alternative to a prolonged acute hospitalization or short-term nursing facility placement. The swing bed provides skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services.

With encouragement and assistance from skilled staff, patients improve mobility and regain confidence and the ability to perform activities of daily living.
