Find out what the hospital is well-known for. This can be difficult as hospitals tend to advertise, just like any other business and they sometimes have quite inflated ideas of what they are (or should be). An example of this is the hospital that advertises itself as “for children” and directs a lot of their advertising budget towards convincing the public that it is. True Children’s Hospitals are just that: for children ONLY. They don’t treat adults. They are the only hospitals who can accurately claim that children are their specialty.
