Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a linear programing methodology used for understanding and measuring efficiencies of multiple decision units for a product with various inputs and outputs. DEA program is thought as one of the productive projects that add to the estimation of performance efficiency amongst hospitals. In other to understand the efficiency of a hospital, you have to understand the areas with available resources with efficiency by either reducing inputs or increasing outputs (Linna et al., 2006). Therefore, this paper is aimed to assess the efficiency of hospitals in the United State. The hospitals varied from the top ranked to the lowest ranked in the U.S.
