Long Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs) are an integral part of the hospital system that serve the needs of over 62 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 the calendar year 2020, there were over 6,200 hospitals in total, with more than 927,300 beds, participating in the Medicare program.  LTCHs accounted for about 5.6% and 2.6% of those hospitals and hospital beds, respectively.

In the calendar year 2020, the five-state Great Lakes region of the U.S. was home to 48 long-term care hospitals, with over 3,300 beds, that were participating in the Medicare program.  This made the region home to 14.7% of the nation's Medicare Part A enrollees and 13.9% of the program's long-term care hospital bed capacity.  Here is a summary look at Medicare Long Term Care hospital beds in the Great Lakes region:
