Just as children are not tiny adults, children's hospitals are not adult hospitals. Children's hospitals play an essential role in kids' health and well-being by providing specialized care, crucial research, essential education, and vital community outreach. Yet when it comes to operational metrics, children's hospitals are often benchmarked against adult hospitals that provide pediatric care.

To level the playing field, the Children's Hospitals Landscape Report offers a high-level look at industry trends specific to children's hospitals. The report leverages the Children's Hospital Association's Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS®) and PROSPECT℠ databases, which contain clinical and financial data from more than 50 leading U.S. children's hospitals. The report includes aggregated quarterly data from 2019 through the fourth quarter of 2023.

The report features key volume metrics, including:

  • Inpatient discharges.
  • Inpatient and observation cases.
  • Surgical cases.
  • Emergency department visits.
  • Case mix index, a measure of patient severity.
