Medicare Long Term Care Hospital Beds in the Mid-East States

Long Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs) serve the needs of the more than 62 million Americans having Medicare Part A long-term care coverage.  LTCHs provide services to individuals with complex medical situations that require extended inpatient care (in excess of 25 days on average).  Over 6,200 hospitals in total, with more than 927,000 beds, were participating in the Medicare program as of the calendar year 2020.  LTCHs accounted for about 5.6% of all Medicare-participating hospitals and about 2.6% of all hospital beds.

In the calendar year 2020, the Mid-East region of the U.S. was home to 28 LTCHs, with over 2,100 beds, that were participating in the Medicare program.  As such, the region was home to about 15% of the nation's Medicare Part A enrollees, but only 8.9% of the program's long-term care hospital beds.  Here is a summary look at Medicare Long-Term Care hospital beds in the Mid-East states:
