By Ayla Ellison for Becker’s Hospital Review

Below are the adjusted expenses per inpatient day in 2016, organized by hospital ownership type, in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, according to the latest statistics from Kaiser State Health Facts.

These figures, which are based on information from the 2016 American Hospital Association Annual Survey, include all operating and non-operating expenses for registered U.S. community hospitals, defined as public, non-federal, short-term general and other hospitals. The figures are an estimate of the expenses incurred in a day of inpatient care and have been adjusted higher to reflect an estimate of the volume of outpatient services, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
