Short-Term Rehab Program

Supporting your return to daily life

Also known as a swing bed program, short-term rehab offers a place for you to stay after hospitalization as you receive personalized rehabilitation care. This service is offered at this location in Two Harbors.

Short-term rehab is often appropriate for people who require the following:

  • Post-surgery rehabilitation
  • Specialized wound care
  • Stroke rehabilitation
  • IV therapy
  • Cardiac rehabilitation
  • Pain management

A rehabilitation plan just for you

Our team develops a customized plan for each patient. Typically, the plan includes twice-daily sessions with a physical therapist, plus regular sessions with occupational and speech therapists. You may stay anywhere from a week or up to 100 days. The average stay is two to three weeks.

Rehab apartment

A unique inpatient apartment is available that will allow us to assess a patient’s ability to safely move around in a home environment. This feature helps inform discharge planning and gives patients, families and caregivers confidence in the plan moving forward.

Medicare requirements

Medicare Part A will generally pay for short-term rehab if a patient meets the following criteria:

  • The patient has been hospitalized for three consecutive days
  • The patient’s doctor determines that daily skilled care is needed

If these criteria are met, Medicare will pay all covered charges for 20 days. After that, Medicare will pay covered charges except for the skilled nursing coinsurance. Other insurances will also pay for short-term rehab. For more information, contact us at 218.834.7300.

If you have a planned surgery or hospitalization, give yourself peace of mind by planning your rehab stay in advance.
