Healthcare Insights

Largest academic medical centers in the northeastern U.S.

In addition to providing inpatient care, academic medical centers (AMCs) educate healthcare providers through partnerships with either the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).

The Definitive Healthcare HospitalView product tracks more than 210 academic medical centers across the United States. This Healthcare Insight reviews the largest academic medical centers located in the northeastern region of the country based on the number of interns and residents associated with the academic medical institution. The number of interns and residents reflects the number of full-time equivalents in an approved medical program. The results in the following analysis are aggregated from the most recent 12-month interval tracked in our database.

How many AMCs are in the northeast?

The northeast region includes the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. In HospitalView, we track 70 AMCs in the region, which is about one-third of all U.S. AMCs.

What is the largest AMC in the northeastern U.S.?

New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City has the highest number of medical interns and residents across AMCs in the northeast. Tisch Hospital, also in New York City, has the second most, and each has more than 1,300 interns and residents. The top three hospitals on this list are also within the top five largest academic medical centers in the country.

The length of time this region has had hospitals and universities compared to the rest of the country, and that it is home to some large metropolitan areas, contribute to the number of large academic medical facilities. States in the northeastern U.S. have some of the highest counts of AMCs as well. On this list, New York is represented seven times, Massachusetts five times, and Pennsylvania four times.
