Top teaching hospitals by number of beds

Teaching hospitals are at the heart of graduate medical education. As the final phase of training for those who have successfully completed medical school, a teaching hospital offers future doctors the opportunity to learn and practice healthcare in a hospital setting.  

These facilities also have an important place within the broader healthcare ecosystem. Teaching hospitals have access to cutting-edge equipment and specialists usually not available anywhere else in the community.  

Using HospitalView, we ranked the top 20 teaching hospitals in the U.S. by the number of staffed beds available. You can also read our Healthcare Insights on the top teaching hospitals by net patient revenue for analysis from a different perspective.

What is a teaching hospital? 

A teaching hospital is exactly as it sounds: a hospital that partners with a medical school to teach and train the next generation of physicians, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals. Like their traditional counterparts, teaching hospitals also provide patients and the community with healthcare services ranging from routine medical care to surgeries, rehabilitation and more.  

Teaching hospitals also dedicate considerable resources to furthering medical and clinical research. As a result, most teaching hospitals attract highly qualified specialists capable of offering unique care for complex illnesses and injuries not available anywhere else in the region.
