In the state of California there are 512 hospitals licensed to provide care, while 88 percent are general acute care hospitals which only treat patients with temporary or severe episodes of illness, trauma, or require surgery, according to the California Healthcare Foundation. Furthermore, in 2007, these hospitals discharged more than three million inpatients and cared for 42 million outpatients, which includes over 10 million emergency room visits.

California is the most populous U.S. state and is home to one out of every eight Americans. It is the third largest state by area and contains eight of the nations 50 most populated cities with a total population of 38.04 million according to the 2012 United States Census Bureau World Bank. With such an enormous population, it is explainable why there is such a tremendous amount of people cared for in our emergency rooms and hospitals each year.
