We should always be starting with national conventions.

The question is whether it is appropriate to use the hospital/medical care type for a facility which does not provide urgent or emergent medical care. The argument against doing so was mentioned earlier, to paraphrase; If someone was in need of emergency or urgent care and searched for hospital or medical care, it would be prudent for us to ensure that only places that provided urgent or emergent care showed as top results.
I agreed with that reasoning, and liked the suggestion of using the offices type, being that they are medical offices. Unless someone else has better guidance, for now I left it as offices (and whatever other secondary categories fit for that campus).

I assume that the City field in Places should match the one that's used for the surrounding road segments?
That would make sense to me.
But without thinking about it, that's not what I've been doing. I've been using the mailing address city.
Do we yet know if the places city field affects the city polygons?
