Data on Rural Hospitals

Assets Available to Cover Losses

This table shows the extent to which a hospital has assets available to cover financial losses.

The Total Expenses and Net Assets amounts shown are for the most recent Cost Report available. The Patient Service Margin and Total Margin represent the averages from the three most recent Cost Reports available, excluding 2020 because of the unusual changes in costs and revenues during the initial months of the coronavirus pandemic.

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