This pamphlet summarizes a study of the voluntary hospitals in a ten county area surrounding the metropolitan center of Pittsburgh. The survey, sponsored by the Hospital Council of Western Pennsylvania, is concerned mainly with hospital needs, the distribution of existing facilities, the financial picture of hospitals in this area, the current program of hospital activities and estimates of future expansions in the scope of hospital service. It is anticipated that a further report will be made on a larger study that has been carried out on all voluntary hospitals in western Pennsylvania.
