“Teaching hospitals train future health care professionals, conduct medical research and fulfill a distinct and vital role in delivering patient care. While many hospitals offer comprehensive care, teaching hospitals have additional capabilities to deliver sophisticated diagnostic and treatment services.”   “Teaching hospitals play distinct roles in their communities’ care delivery systems, offering specialized services not available at other facilities.” Trend Watch, Teaching Hospitals: Their Impact on Patients and the Future Health Care Workforce, American Hospital Association, September 2009
