Term: Hospital Bed Supply

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2007-10-19


The number of beds in acute care hospitals within each RHA divided by the population of the RHA. The bed counts come from the "Setup Beds" data kept by Manitoba Health. These values need to be interpreted with caution because the actual number of beds in use in each hospital varies through the year and because beds can also be used for "non-acute" care. The values provide an overall indication of the relative supply of beds across the province, and can track major changes over time. This number is often expressed per 1000 residents.
