I don't want to end up in a behavior health center, I need to get away for even 24 hours to try and get myself together on my own. I wont have a sitter for my kids to stay pass 24 hours. I have severe panic attacks and need to try and get a little help to control them. My kids are not in danger and I am not suicidal, but my anxiety is getting out of control and I been to doctors and it dont help and my counselor suggest admitting myself but I could not stay 72 hours, I would need to leave before then. I was thinking if I could be admitted in a regular hospial to get my heart and everything checked I could calm down because I wouldn't feel as if I having a heart attack if I am checked and can know my heart is okay it's only anxiety.

What type of hospital is it you are wanting to be admitted to and for what reason?
A hospital really isn't the place to just get away for 24 hours and get yourself together. If you genuinely need help (either mental/emotional/physical) and you are unstable and could be a danger to yourself or others. Then yes a hospital and admittance is the best thing for you.
However, if you just need to get away, take time, decompress and think, then a hospital isn't the right place for that. If you just need 24 to yourself to regroup then you just need to take that time: stay in a hotel, go somewhere quiet where you can think, take a long drive, go see a friend.. or whatever.. Do something along those lines instead of taking up valuable hospital space and resources.
