Tags

Healthcare services are delivered by a variety of different professionals in different types of facilities. This page provides an overview for contributors and data users of how these facilities are commonly tagged in OpenStreetMap.

Tags

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 used for some health-related services that are provided in a retail environment, such as shop=optician.

Other facilities and new tags have been added using the key healthcare=*

A few features and facilities are tagged with emergency=*

More details about the sub-specialty of the medical provider are tagged with healthcare:speciality=*
