ABSTRACT

TWENTIETH ANNUAL PRESENTATION OF HOSPITAL DATA BY THE COUNCIL ON MEDICAL EDUCATION AND HOSPITALS OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION  The total number of beds now available in registered hospitals is 1,226,245, an increase of 31,219 beds, which is the equivalent of an 85 bed hospital for each day of last year, Sundays and holidays included, not forgetting it was leap year.The amount of hospital facilities per unit of population continues its steady increase; the demand per unit of population likewise is growing.The capacity of registered hospitals has practically doubled since 1918 and trebled since 1909.The hospitals that are approved for internships, residencies and fellowships have greater capacity than all of the hospitals that were in existence in 1909.In response to the annual census form which was mailed to all the hospitals that appear in the Register, reports were received from all but fifty-six institutions, a record of 99.1 per cent. The response on the basis of bed capacity was 99.8 per cent.
