Which Rhode Island hospitals have the highest net patient revenue?

In first place is Rhode Island Hospital with an NPR of $1.3 billion, according to the most recent 12-month interval tracked in our database. This hospital is also the largest RI hospital by bed count, with at least twice as many as any other hospital in the state. Because of the hospital’s many beds, Rhode Island Hospital can treat more patients at once, thus bringing in more revenue.

Rhode Island Hospital also houses the state’s only Level I Trauma Center. It is partnered with The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University as a teaching hospital and offers expertise in cardiology, cancer, neurosciences, emergency medicine, and orthopedics.

Miriam Hospital is second on our list, with a net patient revenue of $473 million. This hospital is part of the Lifespan IDN along with Rhode Island Hospital and Newport Hospital. Miriam Hospital is ranked #1 in Rhode Island by U.S. News & World Reports, surprisingly bypassing the number one hospital in terms of NPR, showing that the highest NPR doesn’t always equate to the highest level of care.

Finishing up our top three hospitals in RI based on NPR is the Women & Infants Hospital, with an NPR of $435 million. This non-profit hospital possesses Rhode Island’s only Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and delivers the most babies in Rhode Island.
