This FACT indicates the total number of beds within each Australian state's hospitals. This FACT takes into account the number of hospital beds in public, private and public psychiatric and includes both same day and overnight beds. 

While the term 'hospital bed' (a bed specifically designed for use in a hospital) can refer to the actual bed, the term 'bed' is also used to describe the amount of space in a health care facility. In other words, the capacity of a hospital is measured in the number of beds available for patients.

The state with the most hospital beds is New South Wales, with 21,152 beds. The state/territory with the smallest number is the Northern Territory with 664 beds.
