That's mostly the case in the hospital nearest to me in the UK, although 
there there's a also split between "front of house" operation such as  
e.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4874818040 for long-term cancer 
care, and imaging (https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4874818039/history 
for some treatments, https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4790808365 
downstairs for most others).

I believe that there are ultrasound imaging rooms adjacent to some of 
the X Ray ones upstairs there.

How this is done, even across one health system, is likely to vary though,

Best Regards,
