The map of the U.S. below indicates where the 50 hospitals with the highest net patient revenues are located. 



The majority of the top 50 hospitals are located along the east coast and in the Midwest. Nearly all of the hospitals are located in or near major cities. High-population states like California, Texas, New York and Florida are more likely to have a hospital with a high net patient revenue.

Why is net patient revenue important?

As a key indicator of a healthcare organization’s financial strength, many thought leaders believe increasing NPR to be one of the most difficult challenges hospitals face nationwide. They cite fluctuating patient volumes, decreasing reimbursement rates and constant pressure to keep up with changing regulations as the reasons why improving financial performance is such a struggle.

With high net patient revenue, these organizations can potentially reinvest more funds into new models of care that help improve access to care in rural areas and advance cutting-edge medical research and innovation.
