Characteristics of 190 urban community hospitals that were closed during the period 1980-87 and characteristics of the communities that they served were analyzed and compared to a control group of 380 urban hospitals that remained open.
A negative association was found between hospital closure and four hospital characteristics: the presence of a cancer program approved by the American College of Surgeons, the combined characteristics of forprofit status and membership in a multi-institutional chain, the number of admissions, and the number of facilities and services offered.
