Medicare Skilled Nursing Facility Beds in the Southeast

Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) provide services to more than 60 million Americans with Medicare Part A SNF coverage.  SNFs are institutional medical providers staffed and equipped to give skilled nursing care on a daily basis. Skilled nursing facilities, in most cases, can also provide skilled rehabilitative care and certain other related services.  More than 15,000 skilled nursing facilities, having over 1.5 million beds, were participating in the Medicare program as of calendar year 2019.

In calendar year 2019, the Southeast was home to just under 3,600 skilled nursing facilities, having over 389,000 beds, who were participating in the Medicare program.  Although home to 24.4% of Medicare's SNF beds, about 27.3% of the nation's Medicare Part A enrollees live in the region.  Thus, Medicare enrollees in the region are modestly under-served by SNF beds relative to enrollees in many other parts of the country.  Here is a summary look at Medicare skilled nursing facility beds in the Southeast:
