Number of hospitals in the U.S. 2009-2017 by ownership In 2017, there were around 5,262 community hospitals in the United States. The largest portion of these hospitals were non-profit, while only around 1,320 were for-profit. In recent years, there has been a decrease in the number of hospitals in the U.S.

Hospital beds

There are currently around 931,200 hospital beds in the U.S. Unsurprisingly, just as the number of hospitals in the U.S. has decreased in recent years, so has the number of hospital beds. In 1995, there were over one million hospital beds. The highest number of hospitals have 500 or more beds, with some 239,740 hospitals with such capacity.

Hospital stays

In 2016, around 6.4 percent of the U.S. population reported one or more hospitals stays in the past year. Hospital stays are more common among females than males, however both genders have seen decreasing rates in hospital stays in the past few years. The average length of stay in U.S. hospitals is 5.4 days.
