What is the largest hospital in the U.S. by beds?

AdventHealth Orlando is the largest hospital in the U.S. with 2,247 staffed beds and is also a top hospital by Medicare discharges and net patient revenue. It is owned by the IDN AdventHealth, one of the largest health systems in the U.S. by both net patient revenue and number of hospitals.

According to the most recent Medicare Cost Report, AdventHealth Orlando has a bed utilization rate of 64.1%. Bed utilization measures the percentage of beds or units that are occupied on an average night over a given period of time. It can also be an indicator of how effectively a hospital manages its resources and provides care to patients. Patients at AdventHealth Orlando have an average length of stay of six days..

Jackson Memorial Hospital, another Florida-based facility, is the second largest U.S. hospital on our list with 1,893 staffed beds. The facility has a bed utilization rate of 58.9% and an average length of stay of seven days. The facility is a leading academic medical center.

Notably, many of the hospitals with the most staffed beds are in high-population states. Three hospitals each from the states of Pennsylvania and Texas appear on our list. These states have some of the largest populations, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
