The US Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Infrastructure Foundations - Level Data (HIFLD) provided geographic shapefiles for United States hospitals. This feature class/shapefile contains locations of Hospitals for US territories of Puerto Rico. The dataset only includes hospital facilities based on data acquired from various state departments or federal sources which has been referenced in the SOURCE field. Hospital facilities which do not occur in these sources will be not present in the database. The source data was available in a variety of formats (pdfs, tables, webpages, etc.) which was cleaned and geocoded and then converted into a spatial database. The database does not contain nursing homes or health centers. Hospitals have been categorized into children, chronic disease, critical access, general acute care, long term care, military, psychiatric, rehabilitation, special, and women based on the range of the available values from the various sources after removing similarities. This feature class/shapefile contains Hospitals derived from various sources (refer SOURCE field) for the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) database. This feature class/shapefile has a one-to-many relationship class (HospitalsToTrauma) relate with the “Trauma_Levels” table. This table captures the relationship between Hospitals and the state trauma level designations. “Hospitals” is the origin using STATE as the primary key. “Trauma_Levels” table is the destination using STATE as the foreign key.
