3. Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic reported revenue of $13.8 billion in 2019, up 9.6 percent from 2018. The growth was attributed to higher inpatient hospital and surgical patient volumes.

Nashville, Tenn.-based Vanderbilt University Medical Center reported an operating revenue of $2.43 billion in the six months ended Dec. 31, up from revenue of $2.17 billion in the same period in fiscal 2019.
