hospital grade and more
Explanation:
This seems to indicate that this silencer is capable of silencing above the standard for hospitals, i.e. the dB is greater than 25 dB.

Product line includes four grades of engine silencers: Industrial grade for minimal silencing with noise reduction of 20 dB; Residential grade for moderate silencing with noise reduction of 25 dB; and Critical and Hospital grades for maximum exhaust silencing from 25 to +40 dB, respectively. Line also includes specialty units such as spark arresting silencers; low-pressure drop units; space saving units, which are 50% smaller than conventional units; and insulation blankets.

The Residential grade silencers are best for moderate silencing and can reduce noise by 25 dB. When maximum exhaust silencing is required, the Critical grade (attenuation to 25 dB) and the Hospital grade silencers (more than 40 dB) provide maximum silencing capabilities.
