List[edit]

To anyone who reads this ... soon! I'm wondering if its even necessary to make links to every single one of the hospitals? It takes a lot of time to do it, and I could be done with the list much faster if I didn't have to. Maybe I should just put the names down and then go back and make links to the ones that already have pages? What do you all think? MattSal 23:12, Nov 14, 2003 (UTC)

First, I think each state should have a sub-list page, and this one links to them, to save on page weight. Second, I think you should just plop it down, then ask if someone can write a bot to add the ''' and the '''. -- Emperorbma 04:56, 15 Nov 2003 (UTC)
Firstly, to whom would thou ask such a task? Any particular users that excell at this that you ask of, I must know? Second, I have considered your request of reformatting the page into multiple sublists and (have) decided to act within thyne favor within a short span of time from the writing of this. Cheers.

Well, you could look at PyWikipediaBot. But alas, it also requires knowledge of Python and a little coding expertise. -- Emperorbma 06:50, 16 Dec 2003 (UTC)
You might also try search and replacing (in a text editor) the stars that you use for bullets with the star and the wikilink opener and replacing the endlines with close wikilinks and the return. e.g. replace "*" with "*[[". -- Emperorbma 06:53, 16 Dec 2003 (UTC)
All I know is, I assume there are hospitals and every state. How can there be any dead links?--Attitude2000 03:12, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Territories?[edit]

Any objection to adding hosptials in the Territories (e.g. Puerto Rico, Guam, American Virgin Islands, et al)? 71.93.238.93 (talk) 16:55, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. Don't forget about the Northern Marianas thought! Maybe Insular Areas would be a better group name? What do we think about medical hospitals on US bases which diplomatically on US soil?RevelationDirect (talk) 08:27, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
