AHA Annual Survey Landscape Changes

Each year the American Hospital Association administers a survey of United States hospitals to inform the field on ownership, services, utilization, expenses, and staffing characteristics of hospitals. We learn of hospital additions, closures, mergers, and status changes along the way. Those changes are the foundation of AHA Landscape Changes, a reconciliation between two AHA Annual Survey years.
