Hospital Registration

Section 3701.07 of the Ohio Revised Code authorizes hospital registration by the Ohio Department of Health.  As part of this registration process, hospitals in the State of Ohio are required to complete and submit the Annual Hospital Registration and Planning Report (AHR) by March 1 each calendar year.

Information provided consists of data pertaining to the hospital’s location, corporate owner, classification and type. In addition, hospitals are required to provide statistical data including, but not limited to, surgical, neonatal and emergency room services, cardiac catherization, and bed utilization.

This information is used not only by the Department for registration purposes, but also by many other interested parties such as hospitals, health service areas, health care consultants and other offices within the Department for planning, comparative studies, and trend analysis.
