10 largest for-profit hospital systems | 2015

Here are 10 of the largest for-profit hospital systems in the U.S., based on number of acute-care hospitals.

The list is based on data from the American Hospital Directory, which contains information from hospital cost reports submitted to CMS. Data was accessed June 29, 2015. Hospital cost reports are submitted to fiscal intermediaries about three months after the end of a hospital's fiscal year, and the most common fiscal year ending dates are Dec. 31, June 30 and Sept. 30.
