Hospital Boundaries delineates general care hospitals with 24-hour emergency services and specialty hospital types (such as VA and Cancer) located in the United States. 

All hospital boundaries are individually sourced and built to specifications that capture the primary hospital campus, including the main hospital building as well as patient and visitor parking. Where appropriate, satellite facilities (such as long-term residential care, clinics and administration buildings) are also identified.
