The tag healthcare=rehabilitation is used for a Medical rehabilitation facility - It should not be used for a wellness clinic or hotel.

Unfortunately, it is not clear what type of medical rehabilitation facility is specified by this tag, although it is like to be an inpatient or residential facility where patients stay overnight. Adding an appropriate healthcare:speciality=* tag may make this clearer:


  • Drug rehabilitation, medical or psychotherapeutic treatment for dependency on substances such as alcohol and drugs
  • Rehabilitation (neuropsychology): therapy to regain or improve neurocognitive function that has been lost or diminished
  • Psychiatric rehabilitation, a branch of psychiatry dealing with restoration of mental health and life skills after mental illness
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation, a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability to those with physical impairments or disabilities, including Physical therapy, physical rehabilitation using mechanical force and movement and Occupational rehabilitation, therapy to return injured workers to an appropriate level of work activity
  • Vision rehabilitation, rehabilitation to improve vision or low vision
  • Etc.

How to map
