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,
