50 Top-Grossing Public Hospitals | 2014

Share on Facebook

Here are the 50 top-grossing public hospitals in the United States based on gross revenue, according to CMS cost report data analyzed by American Hospital Directory. Data are for short term acute-care hospitals, critical access hospitals and children's hospitals.

Note: The hospital total patient revenues reported here are reported to CMS by the hospitals in their most recent cost reports and, in some cases, may include patient revenue from other facilities that share a provider number with the main hospital. The listed revenues have been rounded, although hospitals with the same rounded revenues are still ranked and placed according to their unrounded figures, meaning there are no ties.

For the purposes of this list, AHD data were stratified to include the following "type of control" categories: governmental hospital district; governmental city; governmental city-county; governmental county; governmental federal; governmental state; and governmental other.
