McGehee Hospital offers the Swing Bed program, which provides 24-hour skilled nursing care for patients who require continued supervised nursing care but no longer need intensive care provided in an Acute Care hospital unit.

Medicare Part A and some insurance plans provide for skilled nursing services. We can aid with determining necessity, obtaining necessary pre-certifications, planning for discharge and home care services, etc. To qualify, patients must have a skilled need such as IV therapy, IV medications, respiratory treatments, sterile dressing changes, physical rehabilitation after stroke or surgery or strength training after prolonged illness.

Our dedicated and compassionate staff will be pleased to welcome you to our facility.
