The Swing Bed Program at Culberson Hospital is for Medicare patients discharged from Culberson or any other hospital following an acute illness, injury or surgery, who still need time and physical therapy to heal and strengthen before going home. The program eases the transition from acute care to home by providing patients with access to highly trained and caring medical professionals right here in Van Horn!  Medicare patients eligible for swing bed care typically require one or more of the following:

  • Teaching and training to care for a new health problem or condition
  • IV Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Palliative Care (hospice alternative)

To learn if you or your loved one qualify for swing bed services, please contact Rocio Onate, LVN, at 432/283-2760 to see if you or your loved one qualify.
