Transitional Care

Have Your Procedure in Boise, Your Recovery in Emmett

The transitional care program at Valor Health allows Emmett-area residents to go to Boise hospitals for acute medical care, but return to Emmett for recuperation and rehabilitation.

This allows patients to be near family and home while still getting quality medical care until they’re ready to be discharged. Recovery at home is not a good option for some patients. Recovering in Valor Health allows patients to gain further medical care or rehabilitation to help them return to the level of functioning they had prior to their hospitalization.

The Valor Health Transitional Care Program helps patients achieve a maximum level of function by providing skilled nursing care and rehabilitative services. These services are also called “swing bed” services. A “swing bed” program bridges the gap between getting minimal or no medical care at home and getting intensive care at a major hospital. A regional hospital like Valor Health provides more custom care while making it easy for friends and family to be nearby.

Use of a swing bed in rural settings like Emmett provided important health benefits to patients, according to research by the North Carolina Rural Health Research and Policy Analysis Center.
