UCSF Is #1 Top Grossing Public Hospital In U.S.

Choke. Chortle. 

The 10 Top Grossing Public Hospitals 
July 8, 2014 | By 

University of California San Francisco Medical Center at Parnassus leads public hospitals nationwide in gross revenue, according to Becker's Hospital Review.

Becker's used Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services cost report data as analyzed by the American Hospital Directory to determine the top 50 highest-grossing public hospitals, including short term acute-care, critical access and children's facilities, according to the article.

The 10 highest-grossing hospitals, according to the analysis, are:

  1. University of California San Francisco Medical Center at Parnassus, with $7.67 billion
  2. University of California Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, with $6.36 billion
  3. University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers in Ann Arbor, with $5.32 billion
  4. Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, with $5.22 billion
  5. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, with $5.19 billion
  6. UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, with $4.6 billion
  7. Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, with $4.25 billion
  8. Parkland Hospital in Dallas with $4.12 billion
  9. Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami with $4.02 billion
  10. The University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City with $3.96 billion
The list comes a week after Becker's counted down the top-grossing not-for-profit hospitals, most of which were far ahead of the top public hospitals in gross revenue. For example, UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh, which came in first, grossed $12.21 billion, and the first runner-up, the Cleveland Clinic, grossed $11.63 billion, FierceHealthcare previously reported. There was some overlap between the lists, however; UCSF Medical Center at Parnassus was in 10th place in the earlier Becker's ranking.
Public hospitals have lately sought to widen their patient bases beyond low-income and underserved people by creating their own insurance plans. For example, New York City's Health and Hospitals Corporation has created the MetroPlus system, which caters to a slightly higher-income, better-educated patient population.
