Properly mapping hospitals is important to routing and for proper search results. This wiki will cover how to map a hospital, urgent care clinic, place the stop point at the appropriate location, and how to name them.
When mapping a hospital, first identify the grounds where it is located. Many major hospitals are located on extensive grounds known as campuses or centers. These property types may include many buildings and multiple parking lots. Other hospitals are just a single building with parking.
To ensure that the hospital grounds are mapped correctly, please only use information either provided by that facility's website or obtained by observation on-the-ground.
==Adding an Urgent Care Clinic==
===Place point or Area===
The assignment of point or area is very important. For this, special rules apply.
Urgent Care Clinics should be mapped as an area and outline the building.
====Mapping Emergency Rooms (ER)====
Properly mapping a hospital's ER is very important for both routing and search results. The place point of the ER should be located at the public entrance of the ER. If the facility has a website map, it will usually indicate the location of the ER entrance.
In some cases, hospitals may operate emergency centers at locations other than the hospital itself, especially in rural areas across the US. These locations only serve one purpose; emergency care -- the entire building is an ER. In this case, map the building as an Area, and place the stop point at the patient entrance.
For the naming of the ER point, please refer to the Naming section <!-- include link to the Naming section -->
