Description
Facilities which provide healthcare services.
Tags

Healthcare services are delivered by a variety of different professionals in different types of facility. This page provides an overview for contributors and data users of how these facilities are normally described in OSM.

Values

Most healthcare facilities are described as amenities, using the form amenity=*. Common examples include amenity=doctors, amenity=hospital, amenity=pharmacy. See the amenity=* page for list of other examples.

The form shop=* is an alternative to describe healthcare services that are provided in a retail environment, such as shop=optician

To add more facilities or to bring more details for existing tags, please refer Proposed_features/Healthcare 2.0.

Long-term care

A variety of different terms are used to describe facilities which offer various forms of long-term care. Two different approaches may be used to describe these facilities. The amenity=social_facility scheme allows the nature of different facilities to be described in some detail, with precision and international consistency (example: amenity=social_facility, social_facility=assisted_living, and social_facility:for=senior). However, some of the terminology may not be familiar to local contributors. The more straightforward alternative, using amenity=nursing_home, amenity=care_home, or amenity=assisted_living, etc. allows contributors to use familiar terminology, but does not provide the same degree of precision or international consistency.
