Medicare Psychiatric Hospital Beds in the Southeastern U.S.

Psychiatric hospitals are major elements of the hospital infrastructure that serves more than 61 million Americans with Medicare Part A insurance coverage.  In calendar year 2019, more than 6,000 hospitals of all types, with in excess of 932,500 beds in total, were participating in the Medicare program.  Psychiatric hospitals comprised roughly 10% of those hospitals and about 6.4% of those total hospital beds.

The twelve-state Southeastern U.S. region was home to 174 psychiatric hospitals, with over 15,700 beds, who were participating in the Medicare program in calendar year 2019.  Most Medicare enrollees in the Southeastern U.S. are reasonably well-served for psychiatric hospital bed capacity.  The region holds about 26% of Medicare's psychiatric bed capacity, which is generally in line with region's 27% share of Medicare's Part A enrollment.  Here is a deeper look at Medicare psychiatric hospital beds in the Southeastern region of the U.S.:
