Hospital Capacity Report

CMS Certification Number
All facilities that participate in the Medicare program are assigned a unique number that identifies the facility and is used for claims processing, cost reporting, etc. This number was originally referred to as the "Medicare Provider Number" but is now known as the CMS Certification Number (CCN).
Facility Name
Hospital name and address are taken from three sources according to the following precedence: direct communications with hospitals or news items, from a hospital's website, or from a hospitals' most recent cost report.
City
Hospital name and address are taken from three sources according to the following precedence: direct communications with hospitals or news items, from a hospital's website, or from a hospitals' most recent cost report.
State
Hospital name and address are taken from three sources according to the following precedence: direct communications with hospitals or news items, from a hospital's website, or from a hospitals' most recent cost report.
CBSA Title
A hospital's Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA), is determined through commercial geocoding based on the hospital's address.
County Name
A hospital's county is determined through commercial geocoding based on the hospital's address.
Latitude
A hospital's geographic coordinates (i.e. longitude and latitude) are determined through commercial geocoding based on the hospital's address.
Longitude
A hospital's geographic coordinates (i.e. longitude and latitude) are determined through commercial geocoding based on the hospital's address.
Type of Facility
The type of facility is determined from the last four digits of its CMS Certification Number, as defined by CMS.
FY End Date
Hospitals define their own fiscal years for cost reporting.
Months in Period
Because hospital fiscal years may differ, the number of months in a reporting period may more or less than 12. If more than one period is reported, the longer of the two has been utilized, if shorter than 12 months, cost report sourced data are annualized.
Total Employees
The total number of employees is taken from a hospital's most recent Medicare Cost Report (W/S S-3, part I, line 14, column 10).
Total Discharges
The total number of inpatient discharges (all payors) is taken from a hospital's most recent Medicare Cost Report (W/S S-3, part I, line 14, column 15).
Total Average Length of Stay
This field is calculated by dividing the Total Days by Total Discharges.
Total Average Daily Census
This field is calculated by dividing the Total Days by 365.

Bed Days Available
Bed Days Available are calculated by multiplying the number of beds times 365

Square Feet
Square Feet are taken from a hospital's most recent Medicare cost report (W/S B-1, column 1).
Square Feet/Bed
