Would this be solved by tagging each private medical office (with one GP or
specialist physician) was amenity=doctors, within the larger area of the
amenity=clinic (or healthcare=multispeciality) feature which represents the
big "integrated health centre" / former hospital?
It's also possible to just tag the name of the building if it's really just
the name of the building, and each doctor has a separate reception and
staff and phone number inside.
