Hospital and Health System Financial Performance


Most Recent Data



New!

Published September 2019, CHIA's annual financial performance of acute hospitals report includes interactive dashboards of Massachusetts hospital health systems (HHS), affiliated physician organizations (PO), and related health plans as well as hospital-specific financial performance. The report also contains five year trend information on profitability, liquidity, and solvency.

CHIA reports both annually and quarterly on the financial performance of Massachusetts acute care hospitals.  As hospitals and their respective health systems have evolved, 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 and also compares a hospital’s individual performance to its peer cohort. Currently, acute hospitals are grouped into these cohorts: Academic Medical Centers (AMCs), Teaching hospitals, Community hospitals, and Community-High Public Payer Hospitals (HPP).
