The tag healthcare=hospice is used to map a hospice: a facility providing permanent palliative and nursing care, 24 hours a day, to dying or terminally ill people, as well as support to their relatives. Often these are inpatient facilities where patients reside, but in some countries there are palliative care services known as "hospice" which provide outpatient care, usually visiting patients at their own homes.

How to map

Set a node node at the center of the feature or draw an area area along its outline.
