What is a micro hospital? First off we’ll note regulatory requirements are the same for all hospitals big or small, leaving no room for shortcuts on compliance from a micro hospital. Logistically micro hospitals have anywhere from 3-25 patient beds, where a larger hospital has anywhere from 100-500+ beds. Micro-hospitals are leaving a smaller footprint at about 25,000-75,000 square feet, whereas a larger hospital ranges from 300,000+ square feet. Just as a larger hospital, a micro hospital is also required to operate a 24-hour emergency room department, in house labs, imaging, pharmacy, operating rooms, and inpatient rooms.
