These calculations only include active (not closed, etc.) short term general, critical access, and children's hospitals, and exclude non-acute care facilities. These numbers represent all hospitals eligible to participate in the CMS EHR Incentive Programs.

Notes:

Critical Access hospitals are facilities in non-metropolitan areas with fewer than 25 certified beds.
