Short-Term Rehabilitation

Edgerton Hospital Short-Term Rehabilitation

After a hospital stay, not everyone has the ability or strength to return to everyday living. That’s why Edgerton Hospital designed our short-term rehab program (also known as swing bed) to help facilitate a smooth transition between acute care and returning home, or to other living arrangements.

If you need more time to recover after an illness, injury or surgery, Edgerton Hospital offers 24-hour skilled nursing care and daily physical, occupational, speech therapy—all in one location.


  • Private patient rooms 
  • Windows that open 
  • Healing Garden for recovery
  • Personalized meals from our executive chef
  • Low nurse to patient ratio

This program generally qualifies for Medicare coverage under the following conditions:

  • Your inpatient rehab care must be related to a three day (or more) qualifying stay in an acute care setting within the past 30 days.
  • You must need skilled nursing or skilled rehabilitative services on a daily basis that are complex enough to need the supervision of professional or technical personnel.

Even if your surgery or hospital stay was at a different facility, you can transfer to Edgerton Hospital for short-term rehabilitation, close to home.
