Number of System-Affiliated vs Independent Community Hospitals, 1999-2011

System-affiliated hospitals outnumber those that remain independent. In 2011, 61% of community [acute care, non-federal] hospitals were affiliated with a health care system. This compares to 51% in 1999. Conversely, 39% of community hospitals were independent facilities in 2011, down from 49% in 1999.
