This report provides a snapshot of patients in acute care hospitals in Manitoba during 2009/10–2010/11. In this period, Manitoba had 4,006 beds in 71 hospitals distributed among its five recently reorganized health regions. Facilities ranged from the two large Tertiary hospitals in Winnipeg to the 26 small rural hospitals spread across the province. The results in this report describe hospital patients by age, sex, sickness level, reason for hospitalization, socioeconomic status, region of residence, and location of hospitalization. Results are provided for each hospital, along with summary tables by health region and Hospital Type. Patients identified as Alternate Level of Care (ALC) were a particular focus because a significant portion of hospital days are dedicated to providing this care. Analyses were also conducted to characterize Heavy Users of the hospital system.
