Hello again,

After failing to get a price quote I am putting out the question in my own fee.
feel free to go through previous communications with Pafalafa for further details:
http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=735901

What I want is a list of hospitals in the following countries:
UK, Scotland and Ireland
Australia
South Africa
and China

The list can come as a list of toxicity centers, if they are located
within hospitals, like Pafalafa found. Or as a list of plain hospitals
and health centers.

A fast answer will be rewarded with tip.
Good luck,
Lee

Hi Lee,

I think the following website is a good one for obtaining lists with
contact info of  hospitals in 37 countries. Unfortunately, only
Australia, Ireland, and the UK are listed.

HOSPITALS WORLDWIDE
"Hospitals Worldwide is an online searchable database of hospitals.
Currently we have over 12,000 hospitals from around the world.
Hospitals Worldwide was launched in July 2004."

1) Australia (about 550)

2) United Kingdom (about 1100)

3) Ireland (about 400)

4) North America

Canada (about 2300)

United States (about 5400)

Our electricity is scheduled to be turned off soon and will remain off
for most of the afternoon. Given that you need an answer quickly, I
thought I would post this and if you like the lists I found, you could
post another question for China, Scotland and South Africa for someone
else to answer, and re-price this one for me.

I'll check back again after our electricity comes back on.
Regards,
hummer

Dear Hummer,

Thank you for a fast answer.
While the DB you supplied is very interesting, I think it does not
contain all the hospitals in the listed countries. For instance UK has
around 2.5k and only 1.1k listed.
Also the South African link is for private hospitals only and not the
government ones.
But, the information is very usefull...
So, I will reward you with the full ammount.
____________________________________________
If you can retrieve more hospitals in S.A. I would appreciate it.

You can close the answer and claim your money.

Thank you for your haste.

Hi Lee,

Thank you for your generous offer, I'm glad the website is useful for
you and will will post my answer after I check again (I tried to rush
this morning). The reason why I was hoping the lists were more or less
complete on that site was because the U.S. lists 5400 (relatively
close to your 6000).

Canada (about 2300)
http://www.hospitalsworldwide.com/hospitals.php?country=Canada

United States (about 5400)
http://www.hospitalsworldwide.com/hospitals.php?country=USA

I just gave you the South African link as an after-thought, I realized
that they were only private hospitals.

Here are some more of interest but not exactly what you are looking for.

HOSPITALS IN SOUTHERN CHINA
"The following is a list of hospitals in Southern China where there
are English-speaking doctors and provide medical care and services to
foreigners."

Here's Scotland, but again, you have to click on each link.

Hmm
You took your answering off.
By saying " will reward you with full ammount" I meant the whole 130$
and not less for not having all the countries like you suggested. i.e.
not lowering it.

Ok Than

Hi Lee,

I'm sorry, we've had a minor emergency here at home and I've had to
deal with it (it's not over yet). I understood you, I guess my lock on
the question expired automatically by itself because I didn't do it.
Please let me get organized here at home first and then I'll post my
answer as soon as possible.

Thank you,
hummer

On top of that, the answer came very quickly.
