There is no single answer, and no one but someone
that has looked at the APRS network in that area,
and ALL the existing digis, and coverages, can 
answer that question.  But it is trivial to asses.

Just drive there with your mobile.  If a mobile in 
the area of that hospital can get out on APRS, then
the station should not be a digi.  But even that 
statement is not totally true unless you asses
everything involved at that site.

Good luck
