Swing Bed Services

If you have been in the hospital within the last 30 days and are still recovering from a major illness or surgery, we can help through our inpatient rehabilitation program. Our swing bed unit provides a high level of medical and rehabilitative care which is provided by a full-time highly qualified physician, nurse practitioners, nursing staff, physical, occupational and speech therapists.

We can meet your medical needs such as IV therapy, wound care, management of feeding tubes and tracheostomies, colostomy care, specialty beds, diabetes education, physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapy. Our therapists work with you on pain management, improving strength and balance and educate you on the proper use of medical equipment, if necessary.

Admissions are accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To learn more, call 601.928.6613.

Long-term IV Services

SCH is fully equipped with advanced medical technology and highly trained specialists to help you or a loved one with a variety of long-term peripheral
intravenous (IV) access services. Long-term IVs stay securely in place for months if need be and significantly reduces the number of routine “needle sticks” one might experience with a traditional IV. This is particularly beneficial for patients who need more attentive care due to a serious illness, health condition or surgery recovery, such as extended stay patients, as well as patients in our Swing Bed program designed to “swing” or transition you from hospital care to home care.



Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC), available for both inpatients and outpatients, is a thin, soft, flexible tube — an IV line generally inserted in the upper arm that extends through the vein to a large vein near the heart. PICC lines have multiple ports that allow for several items to be administered such as chemotherapy, medication and/or nutrition.


PowerGlide is a midline catheter that can safely last up to 28 days for IV therapy, and is especially good for patients with difficult-to-access veins.


Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) is an intravenous feeding method that utilizes an IV to supply daily nutritional requirements to patients through a mixed product containing amino acids, glucose, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and more.
