16.947 stays per day

For the year 2017, the average number of new hospital stays and contacts with the emergency department per day was 16,947. However, this average number varies according to the day of the week. The ambulatory contacts with emergency department remain fairly stable, but stays in classic hospitals gradually decrease from Monday to Saturday and increase again from Sunday onwards. This slight increase on Sundays is due to stays for surgical procedures scheduled for the following morning.

The number of weekday day hospital stays is higher than other types of stays and is almost non-existent during the weekend.
