The percent of all hospital days used by the residents of each health region/RHA that occurred in:

  • a hospital within their (home) RHA,
  • another RHA,
  • in Winnipeg, or
  • out-of-province.
If a patient is transferred between hospitals, each stay is counted as a separate event and the days spent in each hospital are attributed to that hospital's location. Area residence was assigned based on the patient's postal code provided in the hospital abstract at the time of hospitalization.
