Often assistance is needed during recovery, before you are able to care for yourself at home. The Swing Bed Program is a specialized, individualized program of care.

Each patient’s needs are evaluated. From there, a healthcare team that may include physicians, nurses, therapists, dietitians, case managers and social workers will work with you on health goals.

Rumford Hospital has an exceptional therapy department that helps patients recover as effectively as possible.

When goals are met, you may then be discharged to your home or to another facility for longer rehabilitation.
