Swing Bed Program
Our swing bed program is staffed by RNs, LPNs, Social Services, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Registered Dietician, and Occupational Therapy. Pioneer Community Hospital of Aberdeen’s Transitional Care Unit provides a
Bridge between hospital and home. Transitional/Swingbed Care serves patients
who no longer require acute care, but still need nursing and rehabilitative
care to help them recover.
Pioneer's 25-bed Unit provides skilled nursing services to help you or your loved ones continue to recover in a hospital setting. This continuation of care provides a vital bridge between acute care received in the hospital and daily living in your home environment.
Our mission is to help you become as independent as possible by providing the appropriate and necessary treatments, therapies and support, and to provide a continuum of care to enhance the outcome of your stay.
Pioneer Community Hospital of Aberdeen's Department of Radiology incorporates state-of-the-art imaging in a personalized and healing environment. Pioneer has continually invested in the best imaging equipment to insure that we provide cutting-edge technology. Our radiology department is covered 24/7 by licensed Radiology Technologist. All radiological studies are sent by the PACs system to Comprehensive Radiology for reading and results may be returned to PCH within 30 minutes in emergency situations.

Our PT department is managed by Medi-Comp through Pioneer Health Services. Licensed Physical Therapists, certified Physical Therapy Assistants and other staff provide important therapy on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Our Physical Therapy department addresses physical deficits from traumatic injuries, repetitive motions, chronic conditions and congenital defects. Our therapists evaluate each individual patient to determine what aspects of the patient's condition can be addressed by physical therapy. To achieve the patient's maximum functional potential a treatment plan is then developed. PT also provides patient education to prevent further injury in the future.
