I am looking for the number of hospitals in the U.S., Europe, and Japan that are 500 bed hospitals or larger. These hospitals would probably want to purchase my clients product. He wants to get the rough numbers of hospitals in this category. Any ideas?

Hello researchondemand-ga The America Hospital Association collects the data you are looking for relatively to the US market. You can find the association at http://www.ahadata.com/. They survey more than 6000 hospitals and you can find the list of the information they collect at http://www.ahadata.com/docs/AS99desc.pdf (the field between C19 and C20 is the total number of beds) Their web page is a little difficult to navigate specially if you want to build a query on your own. I built a query with your requirement and found that there are 315 hospitals that match your criteria in their list. If all you need is the number than you have it but I imagine that you also need the name, address and probably the phone number. For that data they charge a fee (their system gave me an estimate of 275$ but you are better check with them). If you find it hard to run a query on your own you can call them at 800-821-2039 and they will run it for you and send the report. If you are happy with a paper list then they told me that you can find a nationwide list of hospitals and the number of beds in the AHA Guide. The guide is available at any furnished library and there is a different book for each year. You can also purchase the book from them at 325$ but the library solution is much more economical. I have also found another book that can give you the information. The title of the book is "The Directory of Hospital Personnel, 2002 Edition". http://www.healthresourcesonline.com/directories/hospital.htm They claim that you can cross reference by "Bed Size Index" and find a lists over 6,500 hospitals and institutions by number of beds. For European and Japanese data I was only able to find a company that sells Worldwide Market and Technology Reports the company is IHS Medical Data International http://www.medicaldata.com. They have a lot of reports on Japanese and European markets, for a list of their reports you can go at http://www.medicaldata.com/Reports/default.asp They claim that "Each report includes vital information in the following areas: Vendor Profiles Emerging Suppliers New Products & Technologies Market Trends Current Issues Market Share Information Growth Rates Descriptive Tables and Exhibits" I am not sure if they have exactly what you are looking for but I though that if your client is planning to enter these market he would probably be interested in some of these reports. You can also contact directly the company at 1 (800) 525-5539 (select option 1) or 1 (303) 858-6481 There is a Japan Hospital Association that probably could provide you the data on Japanese hospitals. Their web page is www.hospital.or.jp/top.html but is in Japanese and I don't understand it. I though I would point it to you in case you know somebody that can read the language and could contact them. For the European hospitals I found http://www.walnut-technology.com/ They have a European Hospital Register and you can contact them at post@WalnutMedical.info or by phone at 44 1763 223223 Once again there is probably a fee involved but I think that they can give you the information you are looking for. These are a few ideas, let me know if I can be of further help silviares

Some additional info for you. AHA Annual Survey 2000 USA hospitals with 500 beds or more = 247 (from 4915 hospitals surveyed) http://www.hospitalconnect.com/aha/press_room-info/content/EdoCrisisSlides.pdf With 600 beds and 160 doctors and staff serving 1,300 outpatients daily, Kyoto National is the third largest hospital in the prefecture of Kyoto. http://www-3.ibm.com/software/success/cssdb.nsf/CS/NAVO-53FPMR?OpenDocument&Site=dmmain The total number of inpatient beds in Japan as of October 1997 was approximately 1.9 million including approximately 240,000 clinic beds and 360,000 psychiatric beds. As of October 1997, there were 9,413 hospitals of all categories. [so the average hospital in Japan has 202 beds] http://www.jpha.or.jp/jpha/english/apha/chapter_4.html
