FY19 Acute Care Hospital Profiles
Publication Materials



An acute hospital is a hospital that is licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, which contains a majority of medical-surgical, pediatric, obstetric, and maternity beds. Acute Care Hospitals are categorized in five types:

  • Academic Medical Centers (AMCs)
    AMC's are a subset of teaching hospitals. AMCs are characterized by extensive research and teaching programs, comprehensive resources for tertiary and quaternary care, being principal teaching hospitals for their respective medical schools, and being full service hospitals with case mix intensity greater than 5% above the statewide average.

  • Teaching Hospitals
    Teaching hospitals report at least 25 full-time equivalent medical school residents per 100 inpatient beds in accordance with the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) and are not classified as AMCs.

  • Community Hospitals
    Community hospitals that do not meet the MedPAC definition to be classified as teaching hospitals and have a public payer mix of less than 63%.

  • Community-High Public Payer (HPP) Hospitals
    Community HPP hospitals are community hospitals that have 63% or greater of Gross Patient Service Revenue (GPSR) attributable to Medicare, MassHealth, and other government payers, including the Health Safety Net. .

  • Specialty Hospitals
    These hospitals are not considered a cohort for comparison and analysis due to the unique patient populations they serve and/or the unique sets of services they provide. Specialty hospitals may be included in statewide analyses.

 

When presenting trends for utilization, costs, quality, and financial performance, baseline data for each hospital’s cohort provides a point of comparison. For analytical purposes, AMCs, teaching hospitals, community hospitals, Community-HPP hospitals are also considered cohorts. Specialty hospitals are not considered a cohort, due to their unique patient populations and services. However, Specialty hospitals may be included in statewide analyses.
