Detectives investigating cases of alleged abuse by Jimmy Savile at an initial 13 hospitals gleaned further information that patients at other facilities could have been targeted by the television presenter.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said in a statement:
The Metropolitan Police Service has completed its document review and transferred various material concerning Jimmy Savile and the NHS to the Department of Health.
The information has been passed on to the relevant hospital trust for further investigation as appropriate. Names of the hospitals are taken from the information received.
These include hospitals that may have closed in which case the information has been passed on to the legacy organisation.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt expects the results of investigations into hospitals' links with disgraced television presenter Jimmy Savile will be delivered by June 2014.

The number of hospitals now being investigated totals 32.

Entering the dock for today's preliminary hearing at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court wearing a suit, black coat and purple scarf, he nodded to confirm his name. The court heard that he would be contesting the charges against him.
Following the 30 minute hearing he was granted bail until his next scheduled date at the same court on April 17 next year for a formal plea and case management hearing.
Jimmy Savile's ex-flatmate and chauffeur will appear in court today charged with a series of serious sex offences against girls.
Ray Teret, 72, is accused of 32 offences involving 14 youngsters and one adult, who was 17 at the time of the alleged offence.
The former pirate radio DJ is charged with 15 counts of rape of a female under 16, one count of rape, one count of attempted rape of a female under 16, six counts of indecent assault of a female under 16, three counts of indecent assault of a female under 14 and one count of child gross indecency.
Teret, of Woodlands Road, Altrincham, also faces two counts of conspiracy to rape a girl under 16, one count of possession of extreme pornography, one count of possession of prohibited images and one count of possession of an indecent image of a child.

A 'dead zombie Jimmy Savile' costume has been removed from sale after an angry reaction from sexual abuse charities.
The costume was advertised in an email by the online retailer Amazon - and was described as being "perfect for bad taste parties". Charities working with abuse victims have today branded the product as 'tasteless, senseless and insensitive.' Amazon said today that it is no longer for sale.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has begun an independent investigation over allegations a former inspector with West Yorkshire Police ‘acted on behalf’ of Jimmy Savile by inappropriately contacting Surrey Police ahead of a police interview in 2009.
Surrey Police was among a number of forces criticised for missing opportunities to investigate Savile allegations in a damning report published in March.
The report by the policing watchdog HMIC identified 11 failures by Surrey Police; among them the fact that officers allowed Savile to choose where and when his interview in 2009 took place.
It also said the interview was "ineffective" because of the "lack of challenge by the Surrey officers to Savile’s assertions".
Responding to the report, Surrey Police Assistant Chief Constable Jerry Kirkby said that there were "a number of learning points" for the force.
A transcript of a police interview from 2009, which reveals Jimmy Savile's denials in his own words for the first time, has been released under the Freedom of Information Act.
- The interview took place at Stoke Mandeville hospital
- It was conducted by officers from Surrey Police
- The transcript is dated 1st October 2009 - two years before Savile's death
- It lasted 56 minutes with a break to change tapes on the recorder
- The transcript was released in response to a Freedom of Information request received in March
- It includes a number of redactions to protect the identities of alleged victims and some police officers
