The microhospital: Coming to a site near you?
The definition of "microhospital" is fuzzy; some people might say a hospital with up to 50 beds would qualify. But generally, they are free-standing buildings that range in size from about 30,000 to 60,000 square feet. Microhospitals stay open 24/7 and typically offer the same services as an emergency department, plus labs, a pharmacy, a full radiology suite and inpatient capabilities. They do not accommodate surgeries. One emergency physician is present and in charge at all times, and other staff can be scheduled as needed.
