Swing Bed Program


The HHD Swing Bed Program enables you or your loved one to
recover here ‘at home’ after surgery or hospitalization and provides
a transition period between hospitalization and your return home.

Remember - you have a right to choose where you will recover.

Many times after surgery or hospitalization, a recuperation and strengthening period is needed before
returning home.

  • Are you getting ready for surgery?
  • Do you need extra time to increase your strength after a hospital stay?
  • Do you want to be closer to home while you recover?
