Ways We Help to Improve the Health of Socorro County
At Socorro General Hospital, we take a holistic view of your healthcare needs, which is why we also provide services to support your emotional, financial, and general health and wellness needs. Our services include:
Home Healthcare and Hospice
Socorro General Hospital Home Healthcare provides skilled care to patients who need specialized medical care and are considered homebound, but do not need the 24-hour monitoring of a hospital or nursing home.
Socorro General Hospital Hospice provides physical, emotional, and spiritual support to terminally ill patients and their families. Our multidisciplinary team helps patients maintain their dignity, comfort, and quality of life in the face of terminal illness.
Swing Bed Program
The swing bed program provides structured, multi-disciplinary care to help you heal and strengthen before going home from the hospital. A “swing bed” is used when a hospital is able to use the same bed for either acute hospital care or skilled nursing care. Thus, the bed "swings" between the two levels of care. The program helps patients recover when they are no longer acutely ill but need extra time to heal or strengthen before returning home. To qualify for the swing bed program, patients must have:
Had a three-day acute care hospital stay within the last 30 days and need daily skilled nursing or rehabilitative services treated
A reasonable expectation for clinical or functional improvement
A pay source and skilled nursing facility benefit day available through their insurance
We offer a wide range of therapy and support options for patients recovering from strokes, neurological and orthopedic conditions, as well as other illnesses, injuries, chronic conditions, and disabilities. Our therapy services are offered on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Services include physical, occupational, speech, and cardiac/pulmonary rehabilitation.
Community Based Programs
First Born Socorro and More
We offer all pregnant and parenting families in Socorro County this free home visitation program, designed to promote the growth and development of happy, healthy babies in positive, nurturing families. Home visits provided by trained staff and educational materials help parents learn about child development and parenting.
Infant Mental Health Services
Infant Mental Health Services are intended to alleviate behavioral health issues that are interfering with healthy infant and parent/caregiver relationships. A child’s early mental health lays the foundation for future mental and physical health and relationships.
The Heritage Program is for senior adults age 55 and older, who are Medicare eligible. It is an outpatient behavioral health program that offers individuals the opportunity to improve their quality of life by learning to cope with emotional problems, maximizing their ability to function independently. Our services are group-based, focusing on grief/loss resolution, stress management, and family therapy.
