What are the top three hospitals in Michigan for net patient revenue? 

The hospital with the highest net patient revenue for 2021 on our list is University Hospital at $4,028,211,053. The facility’s NPR grew by 12.9% in 2022. Located in Ann Arbor, University Hospital is an accredited academic medical center and teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Michigan. In 2022, they were recognized as “truly excellent” by the nonprofit healthcare watchdog organization The Leapfrog Group.

In second place is Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital with an NPR of $2,532,885,733 in 2021. This facility is one of the most active in the state with the most discharges (61,681) and staffed beds (1,139). However, Spectrum has a lower bed utilization rate (70.45%) and a lower average length of stay (5 days) compared to University Hospital, which may be one reason why Spectrum did not place first.

In third place is Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, which is a part of the Henry Ford health system. Four of the network’s seven hospitals appear on our list. The hospital has an NPR of $2,062,519,000.
