Kimble is licensed for 15 acute care beds, all of which may be used as "swing beds" or skilled nursing beds for Medicare patients who need extra time to heal and strengthen following an acute care stay.  As a result, the hospital can care for many inpatients with acute or chronic medical conditions such as heart attacks, congestive heart failure, pneumonia and influenza, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes.  The hospital also provides end-of-life care in rooms designed for the comfort of patients and their families.
