48 Statistics on Major For-Profit Hospital Chain Finances

For-profit hospital operators have endured sluggish volume growth for more than a year now, and it's likely to continue in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, according to a report from Fitch Ratings.

In the fourth quarter of 2013, hospital chains posted a cumulative 4.7 percent drop in admissions, the largest decline Fitch analysts have seen since at least 2011. However, revenue per adjusted admission still showed some signs of strong growth, as some companies recorded higher acuity cases and stronger pricing from commercial payers.

Here are 48 financial statistics of six of the largest for-profit hospital chains from the Fitch report. Note: All statistics are as of Dec. 31, 2013. All CHS statistics are presented pro forma for the acquisition of Naples, Fla.-based Health Management Associates.
