If there IS a change for medical stuff, I would personally rather see
the medical=* proposal be used.

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Medical

Hospitals could be medical=hospital and emergency=yes/no to take care
of the "is this an emergency hospital" concern.

Then I guess a question would be would pharmacies be medical=pharmacy
or remain shop=pharmacy?
