    ours is >900...pretty large! i think about 100 of them are on my unit.
    How can you have 100 in one unit? Is it one cost center? Do you work the whole unit?

    Generally I've always worked in monster facilities with 800-1100 beds. The medium-sized hospitals in my area are all around 300 beds. Even though you didn't ask, I wanna add that I love working those medium hospitals because I think it's a perfect size.

    I love AN because I never would have imagined the idea of a 15 or 20 bed hospital until some people mentioned it here!

    depends on who is asking. We are considered rural by CMS because of the population in our area, but our beds are around 400, which is not tiny by any means.

    Know it's all subjective but here goes:
    <100 very small
    100-250 small
    250-500 medium
    500-850 large
    >850 x-large
    >1200 ginormous

    Bed numbers don't necessarily correlate with 'Trauma' or 'Academic' designation either. I've worked at a ~250-bed level II trauma center... And Houston has 2 hospitals with over 700 beds that are not trauma designated at all.

    Some of the first hospitals in many areas of the United States got their start as *small* (<50 bed) hospitals, including those started by religous orders.

    Today you have Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) that by statue <30 beds.

    My hospital has around 316 beds, and it's the biggest one in the area. I consider it to be medium sized. I don't think I'd want to work at one that was much larger, but that's just me
