What Is A Hospital?
A hospital is a health care institution that is built, staffed and equipped to diagnose disease, provide treatment (both medical and surgical) to the sick and injured and house them during this process.
The most well-known type of hospital is the general hospital, which typically has an emergency department to treat urgent health problems. To better serve the needs of the community, many modern hospitals also offer outpatient facilities, as well as trauma, psychiatric and rehabilitation services. A teaching hospital combines assistance to people with teaching to medical students and nurses.
