Medicare Psychiatric Hospital Beds in the Mid-East States

Psychiatric hospitals are an important component of the hospital infrastructure that serves over 62 million Americans having Medicare Part A insurance coverage.  Over 6,200 hospitals of all types, having over 927,300 beds in total, were participating in the Medicare program in the calendar year 2020.  About 9.9% of those hospitals, and 6.6% of those hospital beds, were provided by psychiatric hospitals.  

In the calendar year 2020, the Mid-East region of the U.S. was home to 81 psychiatric hospitals, with over 14,300 beds, that were participating in the Medicare program.  Medicare enrollees in the Mid-East states are well served by psychiatric bed capacity.  Although the region is home to about 15% of the nation's Medicare Part A enrollment, it holds close to 23.5% of the Medicare program's psychiatric hospital beds.  Here is a state-level look at Medicare psychiatric hospital beds in the Mid-East states of the U.S.:
