Transitional Care

Caring for patients like family means providing a smooth transition from hospital to home.

Setting You Up for Success in Your Recovery

The Klickitat Valley Health Transitional Swing Bed Care Program is designed to provide patients with individualized in-hospital care and physical rehabilitation with the goal of helping them reach a maximum level of function. This program is designed for patients who are discharged from acute care but who need temporary additional supportive care that can’t be provided at home.

Through a combination of rehabilitative therapies, medical care, and nursing care, patients gain the function they need to achieve their maximum level of independence in a caring, supportive environment.

Consult your physician or contact us at (509) 773-1000 to determine whether you qualify for Transitional Swing Bed Care.
