quaternary hospital

quaternary hospital

A generic term for a hospital which, as defined in US practice, provides sub-specialty services, such as advanced trauma care and organ transplantation. The difference between tertiary and quaternary hospitals is not always distinct, as many such services would be provided in the UK by tertiary care hospitals alone.
