Here are the 50 largest public hospitals in America, listed by number of beds. Figures are based on CMS cost report data analyzed by the American Hospital Directory. Data are for short-term acute-care hospitals, critical access hospitals and children's hospitals.

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 other; and governmental state.

Note: The hospital bed counts reported here include all medical/surgical and special care beds as reported to CMS by the hospitals in their most recent cost reports and, in some cases, may include bed counts from other facilities that share a provider number with the main hospital.
