Question ID: 770817
Can someone tell me how many hospitals there are in the US according
to bed size? I know that there were a total of 5,761 US hospitals in
2002 with an estimated 937,504 beds. However, I need to know the
breakdown of the number of hospitals by bed size, for example:

<200 beds
200-500 beds
500-1,000 beds
>1,000 beds
