The Largest Hospital in Each State, and How Cloud Communications Can Help Them All
Inpatient hospital care is operating at an astounding rate in the United States; this past year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 35.1 million discharges. That statistic seems equally remarkable when brought down to earth --1,140 discharges per 10,000 population.
The number of procedures is even higher (to the tune of 51.4 million), and the average hospital stay lasted 4.8 days. As if those statistics weren’t staggering enough, here’s the number of emergency department visits in 2015 alone: 136.3 million.
With healthcare utilization likely to rise, what are hospitals doing to keep up with the demand? Hospital staffs are growing, medical specialists are gaining more expertise, and health care centers are getting exponentially bigger. Check out our graphic below showing the largest hospitals in each state by number of staffed beds.
