Which hospitals in Georgia rank highest by NPR?
Northside Hospital Atlanta comes in first on our list with a significant lead. This hospital has a net patient revenue of more than $2.5 billion. Interestingly, Northside Hospital Atlanta is also the top hospital in Georgia by number of beds, which could help explain why it has a much higher NPR than other hospitals on the list. The more beds a hospital has, the more patients it can care for, and the more revenue it can generate.
In second place is Northeast Georgia Medical Center Gainesville, with nearly $1.5 billion in net patient revenue. Following in third place is Emory University Hospital, with $1.27 billion. Together, the top 25 hospitals account for an astounding $21 billion in net patient revenue.
Notably, many of the hospitals on this list also rank as some of the ”best hospitals” in Georgia, which makes sense since hospitals with high-quality care are more likely to draw patients and generate revenue. The “best hospitals” list acts as a resource for patients and their families in choosing where to seek treatment and care.
Emory University Hospital is ranked first in Georgia for cardiology centers, as well as first in Atlanta overall by the US News & World Report. Northside Hospital Atlanta is third in Atlanta overall.
What is net patient revenue?
Net patient revenue (NPR) is the total money that a healthcare organization generates from patient services. Money is collected from payors, including private insurance and Medicare and Medicaid.
The net patient revenue calculation is as follows:
- Net patient revenue = total patient revenues - patient discounts.
Net revenue vs gross revenue
While net revenue is the total amount of money earned through providing patient services, minus expenses, gross revenue is just the total amount of money earned by providing patient services.
