Swing Bed Program
Sakakawea Medical Center Swing Bed is a certified program of extended care services for persons not able to care for themselves, but who no longer need acute hospital care. Since our Swing Bed unit provides extended care, you will find these services quite different from those offered in the acute care hospital setting. Our emphasis is on restoring the resident’s independence. Therefore, the resident and family are encouraged to actively participate in providing that care.
