Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is proud to offer rehabilitation services, often referred to as the “swing bed program,” to our community. Services available include physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy, as well as skilled nursing.

This is a skilled service for patients following orthopedic surgery such as hip, knee or shoulder replacement as well as other types of surgery, deconditioning following hospitalization, complicated wound care, and or infection requiring IV antibiotics. Insurance companies must authorize.
