Medicare Psychiatric Hospital Beds in the Mid-East States

Psychiatric hospitals are an important component of the hospital infrastructure that serves over 60 million Americans having Medicare Part A insurance coverage.  Over 6,000 hospitals of all types, having over 932,500 beds in total, were participating in the Medicare program in calendar year 2019.  About 10% of those hospitals, and 6.4% of those hospital beds, were provided by psychiatric hospitals.  

In calendar year 2019, the Mid-East region of the U.S. was home to 81 psychiatric hospitals, with over 14,200 beds, who 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 24% 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.:
