Utilization Report-December 2019
Overview & Observations
Currently, the only DC ACFs that have SNFs are Sibley Memorial Hospital, United Medical Center, and both Bridgeport Capitol Hill and National Harbor Hospitals. By earlier agreement, volume metrics have combined acute care data with SNF data. The combination makes it difficult to compare acute care metrics between facilities. For example, total patient days for facilities with SNFs is 50% greater than the total for acute care alone. The graph shows total patient days by facility for CY2019 as currently reported by hospitals, with a distinction for acute care and SNF data evident.
