Hospital Recovery Program

Need more time and help to recover? We’ve got you covered.

From Hospital to Home

You’re ready to be released from the hospital, but you may need a little more time and special care to fully recover. Jerold Phelps Community Hospital Recovery Program, also known as a swing bed, offers skilled care to help you regain strength and independence in a hospital setting. Swing beds allow patients who have been treated in a hospital elsewhere, to return to Southern Humboldt for continued care, rather than moving to a rehabilitation facility or nursing home.

Ideal for patients needing:

  • Wound care
  • Recovery from major surgery, joint replacement, or vascular or abdominal operation
  • Rehabilitation after a stroke
  • IV medication therapy
  • Strength training after a lingering illness or prolonged hospitalization
  • Repeated hospitalization
  • Daily physical therapy, occupational therapy and/or speech therapy

Patients receive 24-hour care from our skilled nurses, physicians, and therapists in a quiet and comfortable setting. Recovering close to home allows family and friends to become part of your recovery team – helping speed your healing time. Jerold Phelps Community Hospital’s low nurse-to-patient ratio means you will receive personalized care and individual attention until you are ready to return home.

The Hospital Recovery Program is covered by Medicare and some insurance plans. Check with us and your insurance company for coverage guidelines.
