Patients Admitted, Net Patient Revenue, Outpatient Visits

The University Hospital annually admits over 30,000 patients, in addition to outpatient visits in various locations. Inpatient admissions have lagged behind projections for the last few years, which is reflective of a national trend to provide more care in an outpatient rather than inpatient setting. Annual revenue from patient fees has surpassed $1 billion, which reflects funds available to cover operating expenses, pay debt service, purchase capital equipment and provide support to the School of Medicine for education and research. Net patient revenue has grown over the past several years based on increased volumes as well as improvements in collections.
