 ```Hello TAilwag, Total Number of All U.S. Registered Hospitals 5,759 Total Staffed Beds in All U.S. Registered Hospitals 955,768 Source: American Hospital Association: Fast Facts on U.S. Hospitals from AHA Hospital Statistics http://www.aha.org/aha/resource_center/fastfacts/fast_facts_US_hospitals.html ============================================ Journal of the Medical Library Association 2006 April; 94(2): 118?129. According to AHA's Hospital Statistics 2002 there are 5,810 hospitals in the United States. ?Again using the data from the Benchmarking Network 2002 survey and AHA's Hospital Statistics 2002, the percentage of participants in the survey and the percentage of beds in each AHA bed-size category can be compared, as shown in Figure 5. Using the 8-bed size categories for AHA's 5,810 hospitals, the percentage of hospitals and survey participants in each category was determined. The bed-size category of 100?199 has the strongest match, containing 24.8% of hospitals and 20% of library participants. No libraries reported in the under-50-bed-size hospitals, which made up 23.5% of all hospitals. Hospitals over 300 beds made up 15.8% of all hospitals, whereas in the Benchmarking Network 2002 survey, 53% of participants were in this range.?
