Teaching Hospitals: Vital For Tomorrow’s Health Care

Teaching hospitals train future health care professionals, conduct medical research and fulfill a distinct and vital role in delivering patient care. While many hospitals offer comprehensive care, our nation’s 1,041 teaching hospitals also deliver sophisticated diagnostic and treatment services. Teaching hospitals serve as economic engines of their local communities, providing millions of jobs and serving as hubs for biomedical research and other business activity.
