Medical/Surgical Inpatient Care

We take pride in the superior nursing care delivered to patients in the medical/surgical inpatient care unit. Nurses care for inpatient conditions including general post surgical, joint replacement, and obstetrical care. Outpatient services receiving care include same day surgery, chemotherapy, blood transfusion, or IV therapy. Our nursing staff is committed to providing you excellent care close to your home and loved ones.

All RN staff members are ACLS accredited and certified in CPR.

Swing Bed Program/Transitional Care

The medical/surgical department also provides transitional care for those who need more time to recover from surgery, illness, or injury, or who need pain management or wound treatment. The program focuses on rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to prepare patients for a safer, healthier return to their previous living situation.

To qualify, patients must be under the supervision of a physician, require daily skilled services, and have a three-day hospital stay prior to entering the Swing Bed program.

Swing Bed services are available through Medicare Part A. Other insurances may also cover Swing Bed services.
