Acute Care Unit (ACU)

What Can It Do For You?

Sullivan County Community Hospital’s Acute Care Unit provides quality care for patients of all ages with a wide range of acute and/or chronic illnesses. The unit consists of all private rooms, seven of which are ADA handicapped accessible.

The Swingbed Program is designed for those patients unable to care for themselves and requiring additional therapy and/or care prior to discharge. Patients admitted to the Swingbed Program remain on the Med/Surg Unit to receive the additional care and therapy. Patients must meet certain Medicare guidelines to be admitted into the program. Occasionally, commercial insurance policies will provide for skilled nursing in a swing bed program and will recommend the program for persons needing further rehabilitation.

Visiting hours are from 8 AM – 8 PM and include only those who are 12 years of age or older.
