A private hospital is a hospital owned by a profit company or a non-profit organisation and privately funded through payment for medical services by patients themselves, by insurers, Governments through national health insurance schemes, or by foreign embassies. This practice is very common in the United States, Chile, France and Australia. In the United Kingdom, private hospitals are distinguished from the far more prevalent National Health Service institutions.
