Virginia currently licenses over 70* acute care general hospitals. They are located to serve Virginia's communities in major metropolitan areas, in the suburbs, and in midsize and small towns across the state. Virginia's acute care general hospitals vary in mission, in their corporate profiles, as well as in their size. For example, some acute care general hospitals in Virginia have as few as 25 licensed beds and others - large regional facilities - can accommodate upwards to 1,000 patients if necessary. Some are nonprofit and some are proprietary.*Based on data available at time of publication of this guide.
