Our hospital has a Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Program (also known as a Swing Bed Program). This program hosts patients who are recently out of surgery, or recovering from a serious illness, but need a bit more recovery time, and possible rehabilitation, before returning home. Staying at Summit Pacific is a great alternative for Grays Harbor residents who don’t want their families to have to stay in a nursing home and who don’t want to have to commute to Thurston or Pierce Counties to visit.
Our patients have access to round the clock care from their RN’s and our certified nursing assistants. Throughout the day, patients are able to receive care and therapy from our internal medicine doctor, and physical, occupational and speech therapists. Patients and their family will also have access to our social worker. And if the need arises, because your loved one is staying in a setting with a 24/7 emergency department down the hall, patients are never more than a few seconds away from emergency medical care.
