Hospital, two

Millions of people must, at some point in their lives, spend some time in hospital as inpatients. Millions of others will visit hospitals as outpatients. Outpatients receive treatment but do not stay in the hospital.

In most countries of the industrialized world, a hospital is a clean building or complex equipped with modern medical facilities where doctors and nurses use up-to-date techniques to treat patients.
