Italy: hospital beds 2007-2016 Between 2000 and 2016, the number of hospital beds in Italy considerably decreased, from 268,057 to 192,327 units. It comes as no surprise that the number of hospitals and more specifically the number of public hospitals in the country also declined during the same time range.  
Closing of hospitals

Between 2014 and 2016, some hospitals were closed or converted into outpatient care facilities in Italy. Some regions have been affected by these cuts more than others. Apulia was the region with the highest number of hospital closures, during the period considered.  

Patients using hospital services

Over the last few years, the share of individuals using hospital services steadily grew . More specifically, the percentage of people going to the hospital because of minor health issues only slightly increased. The growth was more remarkable among patients who were admitted to the hospital in order to be treated for severe diseases or to undergo major surgeries. As a matter of fact, the share of the latter group of patients increased from 21.6 percent in 2007 to 30.8 percent in 2018.
