Pana Community Hospital is giving patients all of the time they need to recover through the hospital’s swing bed program. The program also allows patients who may have had procedures or operations done elsewhere to get extra care at the hospital if they still need it upon release from the other facility.
Melissa Rybolt is the Marketing Manager at Pana Community Hospital. She says the program provides the extra care in a time when most hospitals can’t let you have an extended stay.
Rybolt says these programs are common in smaller hospitals so patients can recover closer to home.
Rybolt appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
