Swing Bed Program

Swing beds are an important service line for critical access hospitals and are a key service line for meeting both community needs and enhancing financial performance.
Unfortunately, in many critical access hospitals, swing beds are under-utilized. This may be the result of staff not understanding swing bed criteria, or lack of aggressive marketing to capture referrals from acute care hospitals, or both.
Our consultants assist in developing a swing bed program or improve an existing swing bed program that is designed to meet the hospital’s volume, financial and patient satisfaction goals.
