Rehabilitation hospitals are part of the hospital infrastructure serving the needs of the more than 60 million Americans having Medicare Part A insurance coverage.  Over 6,000 hospitals of all types, with more than 932,500 beds in total, participated in the Medicare program as of calendar year 2019.  Rehabilitation hospitals accounted for about 5% of those hospitals and just over 2% of those hospital beds.

In calendar year 2019, the twelve-state Southeast region of the U.S. was home to 103 rehabilitation hospitals, with over 5,700 beds, who were participating in the Medicare program.  As such, the region was home to about 27% of the nation's Medicare Part A enrollees and 30% of the program's rehabilitation hospital beds.  Here is a state-level summary look at Medicare rehabilitation hospital beds in the Southeast region of the U.S.:
