This chart displays the total number of discharges per hospital by discharge year for the hospitals with the largest number of discharges. To view a hospital that is not included in the initial visualization, explore the different filter conditions. To expand the view from the initial hospitals shown, you may uncheck the preselected filter and choose your own parameters. The chart is based on data collected on patients and hospital discharges in the Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS). Not all hospitals are shown in the initial visualization display. To expand the display, explore the different filter options. The SPARCS data has been divided into two distinct datasets, Hospital Discharges by Patient County of Residence and Hospital Discharges by Facility to preserve the confidentiality of identifiable individual information. This dataset includes the facility names. For more information check out http://www.health.ny.gov/statistics/sparcs/, or go to the "About" tab.
