Properly mapping hospitals is important to routing and for proper search results. This wiki will cover how to map a hospital, place the stop point at the appropriate location, and how to name them. However, this does not include the topic of Urgent Care clinics. Please verify with your local SM or RC for local guidance.

Adding a Hospital

In order to map a hospital you must first identify the grounds that they are located on. Many major hospitals across the nation are located on grounds known as campuses or centers. These property types may include other buildings and parking lots or just one massive building with each section representing a different field of practice.

To ensure that the area is mapped correctly, please only use information provided by that facility via the facilities website. Many include maps of their proper, including specific parking for certain types of patients. Others will include maps of other facilities located in other parts of the building or property.

PLACE POINT OR AREA

The assignment of point or area is very important. For this, special rules apply.

Campus/Centers

These types of properties will be mapped as an area. As with many large places, you will map them to the borderline of the property. This is to include the parking lots.

Buildings on property

Many of the large properties will house or lease buildings that facilitate other medical practices. For these buildings, add a place point and ensure it is located at the entrance.

Hospital

The hospital itself will be mapped as an area. This will add a visual aid when navigating the large property.

MAPPING EMERGENCY ROOMS (ER)

Properly mapping a hospitals ER is very important for both routing and search results. The place point of the ER should be located at the entrance of the ER doors. This would be at or right next to where the ambulance drops patients off. If this is not the proper location many hospitals will have building maps, on their website, indication the exact location of the ER entrance.

For the naming of the ER point, please refer to the Naming section

STOP POINTS

Campus/Centers

The stop point should be at its main entrance (main point of access and not a side street) Many of these large areas have signs at the entrance and through out the roads to help guide anyone entering the property.

Hospitals

The stop point for the hospital should be located at what would be considered the main entrance. Many hospital websites will include this in a map that they offer or via an online directory. If you are still unable to locate the main entrance, consult an SM or RC for assistance.
