This dataset shows the location of hospitals in the Commonwealth. Hospitals are any facilities licensed pursuant to § 32.1-125 of the Code of Virginia in which the primary function is the provision of diagnosis, of treatment, and of medical and nursing services, surgical or nonsurgical, for two or more non-related individuals, including hospitals known by varying nomenclature or designation such as sanatoriums, sanitariums and general, acute, rehabilitation, chronic disease, short-term, long-term, outpatient surgical, and inpatient or outpatient maternity hospitals. Outpatient centers are those facilities where patients stay no longer than 24 hours.
Note: This dataset originated with the Virginia Department of Health. VEDP enhanced the dataset by aligning points with buildings on the VBMP imagery and adding fields for number of beds from Health Resources and Services Administration data and trauma centers from Virginia Health Information.
