Hospital and Health System Financial Performance


Most Recent Data



CHIA reports annually and quarterly on the financial performance of Massachusetts acute care hospitals.  As hospitals and their respective health systems evolve, CHIA has added financial information on hospital health systems, affiliated physician organizations, and affiliated health plan in its publications.

CHIA reports on trends in profitability, liquidity, and solvency metrics and also compares a hospital’s individual performance to its peer cohort. Acute hospitals are grouped into the following cohorts: Academic Medical Centers (AMCs), Teaching hospitals, Community hospitals, and Community-High Public Payer Hospitals (HPP). Specialty hospitals are not considered a cohort but are included in the statewide medians. The databooks contain all of the variables that hospitals and hospital health systems filed.

The Acute Hospital Financial Performance Trends are hospital-specific and contain five year trend information on profitability, liquidity, and solvency metrics. For additional information, see technical resources.
