Long Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs) are an integral part of the hospital system that serve the needs of over 60 million Americans having Medicare Part A long term care coverage.  LTCH services are geared toward individuals with complex medical situations that require extended inpatient care (more than 25 days on average).  As of calendar year 2019 there were over 6,000 hospitals in total, with more than 932,500 beds, participating in the Medicare program.  LTCHs accounted for about 6% and 2.7% of those hospitals and hospital beds, respectively.

In calendar year 2019, the five-state Great Lakes region of the U.S. was home to 51 long term care hospitals, with almost 3,500 beds, who were participating in the Medicare program.  This made the region home to 14.8% of the nation's Medicare Part A enrollees and 13.6% of the program's long term care hospital beds.  Here is a summary look at Medicare Long Term Care hospital beds in the Great Lakes region:
