Swing Bed Services

Short-term, skilled health care services

Windom Area Health Swing Bed Services program is designed to provide short-term, skilled health care services to patients at Windom Area Health. The goal of the Swing Bed program is to assist patients in attaining optimum physical health in order to return to their prior level of functioning and independence.

Swing Bed is ideal for patients who require physical therapy, IV medication therapy, medication management, occupational therapy, speech therapy, or wound management services. The length of each patient's stay is determined based on each individual's need for care.

Who is eligible for Swing Bed Services?

The Swing Bed program is available to patients who require skilled care services when an acute care hospitalization is no longer necessary and the needed services cannot easily be provided in the patient’s home.

This service is also available to patients who have been hospitalized at Windom Area Health or at other facilities outside the Windom area.

For further information on our Swing Bed program, contact the Social Services Department at 507-831-0687 or 507-427-2700 ext. 0687 in the Mt. Lake area.
