Using my favourite not-a-hospital example. It has:
- General practise with doctors and nurse practitioners.
- Dental surgery.
- Minor injuries unit.
- Radiology and diagnostics.
- Outpatient suite.
- Mental health services
- Other (vaguely-specified) things.
- No beds.

proposed to replace the local cottage hospital with the care
centre, locals were outraged because the replacement was not,
in their view, a hospital (no beds).
It has too many specialities to call it a clinic. It's not viewed as
a hospital, nor is it called one. And this type of thing will
become increasingly common in the UK and possibly
