Greenwood County Hospital offers two additional levels of care for inpatient services:
Skilled Swing Bed
This is a less acute level of care. It is available for patients requiring some skilled medical service (physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, IV therapy, wound care, etc.) that cannot be given at home.
Intermediate Swing Bed
This is for patients who require long-term care but don’t require the level of care provided by skilled swing bed. This service is a cash only service as it is not covered by insurance.
Ourpatients admitted to either swing bed care are invited to join many activities, organized by our Social Services department. Patients can participate in crafts, hair appointments, games, and much more!
Patients in the swing bed programs are encourage to participate in daily hygiene activities and dress in regular clothing each day. These types of activities prepare the patient to return home with minimal to no assistance upon discharge.
