Bridges - Swing Bed Unit

What is the Bridges Swing Bed Program?
The Bridges Program at Jersey Shore Hospital is designed to meet the individual, rehabilitative needs of our guests recovering from an illness, injury or surgical procedure.
The Bridges Swing Bed program provides assistance in daily living activities based on the needs of the individual. For those who have just had surgery, an activity room is available to practice everyday tasks such as getting in and out of bed, using stairs, and even cooking.

From an acute hospital stay to going home, the Bridges Swing Bed program fills the gap when further recovery periods are needed.

Swing Bed is right for a loved-one or myself if we have...

  • Hip or knee surgery
  • Wound care needs
  • IV therapy
  • Long-term antibiotic therapy
  • Sugical procedures
  • Any acute hospital stay that may require a longer recovery period

What can I expect from my stay?

  • Quality, rehabilitative care with hospital resources and a personal care team
  • Your individualized care plan will provide you with physical, occupational and speech┬átherapies, a dedicated nursing team, social services and dietetic assistance.
