Teaching Hospitals: Vital For Tomorrow’s Health 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.
