The Sabetha Community Hospital understands that time is of the essence, especially when you or a loved one is recovering from illness, surgery or an accident. At some point in your recovery, acute hospital care is no longer necessary; however, you may not be physically ready to go home. The SCH Swing Bed skilled care program may be the step that will help meet your health care needs.

Recovery from repeated hospitalization
