Number of hospitals in Italy 2014-2018

In Italy, the total number of hospitals gradually decreased over time. As a matter of fact, in 2014, there were 1,119 hospitals in the country, whereas in 2018, the number decreased to 1,048 hospitals. This figure includes both public and private institutions. Also, the number of hospital beds declined during the period considered.  

 Hospitalization rates and causes 

Heart failure is the main cause of hospitalization, followed by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Aosta Valley, Liguria, and the Autonomous Province of Bolzano were the regions with the highest hospitalization rates, whereas Lombardy, Apulia, and Sicily recorded the lowest rates nationwide.

Level of satisfaction for hospital services

As regards the level of satisfaction among patients for the services received, there was a remarkable gap between the public and the private sector. For instance, only 19.6 percent of patients treated in public facilities declared to be very satisfied with the cares received, against 42.1 percent of individuals who made the same statement about private accredited hospitals.
