Hospital Patient Discharge Data (PDD)
Hospital patient discharge data is distributed by the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). Data include a de-identified record for each inpatient discharged from a California licensed hospital, including general acute care, acute psychiatric, chemical dependency recovery, and psychiatric health facilities.
Numbers are for discharges, not persons, because a person may have more than one hospitalization during a year.
