Medicare Skilled Nursing Facility Beds in the Great Lakes Region

Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) serve the needs of over 62 million Americans having Medicare Part A SNF coverage.  Equipped and staffed to offer skilled nursing care on a daily basis, SNFs serve individuals with medical conditions that necessitate daily inpatient nursing care, but not the intensive inpatient care normally provided by short-stay hospitals.  Examples of skilled nursing care include therapeutic treatments or intravenous injections that can only be given by a registered nurse or doctor. , With more than 1,588,000 beds, over 15,000 skilled nursing facilities participated in the Medicare program in the calendar year 2020.

In the calendar year 2020, the Great Lakes states were home to 2,946 SNFs, with nearly 289,000 beds, that were participating in the Medicare program.  Compared to other regions of the country, Medicare Part A enrollees in the Great Lakes states were very well served by SNF bed capacity.  The region was home to about 14.7% of the nation's Medicare Part A enrollees, whereas it had an even larger share (18.2%) of Medicare's SNF bed capacity.  Here is a closer look at Medicare skilled nursing facility beds in the Great Lakes region:
