Data on Rural Hospitals

Trend in Rural Hospital Margins

This table shows whether profits and losses have been increasing or decreasing at rural hospitals that were open at the end of 2020. The margins shown for a year are based on the hospital fiscal year that ended in that year or that ended by March 31 of the following year.

Data on margins are not shown if no Cost Report for the full fiscal year is available, if revenue data were not included in the Cost Report, or if the data appeared to be erroneous.

Total Expenses is based on 2020 or the most recent Cost Report available.

Additional details on the methodology are available in the Methodology section.
