Aspirus Grand View's Swing Bed Program is a hospital-based skilled-care program designed to help you if you are no longer in need of acute care in a hospital, but still need more rehabilitation before you return home.
Even if you have received inpatient care or surgery at another hospital, you can choose Aspirus Grand View for swing bed care.
Stays are anticipated to be short-term and can be utilized for a variety of conditions including, but not limited to:
Our swing bed program is geared toward patients on Medicare, as this is a covered benefit. However, we can accommodate people of all ages, as some insurance companies may also cover this service.
Anyone (family, parents or hospital staff) may contact Aspirus Ironwood Hospital regarding our swing bed program. Patients currently at another hospital can ask to coordinate a transfer to Aspirus Grand View's swing bed program.
Patients need a physician's referral to be eligible for our swing bed program. Patients must also have a three-night qualifying stay in a hospital setting to be Medicare eligible.
