I am unhappy with tagging wards as amenity, the healthcare tag would be ok, but I could also imagine having 
ward or
as a key and the rough type (surgical, medical, pediatric, cardiac, psychiatric, dental, dermatological, ophthalmological, etc.) as a value.
There would still be room for plenty of specialization details in the case of a big university hospital.

Typically the most interesting tag around here would be level and ref.

I am not sure, but maybe intensive care could be an attribute?
