multispeciality hospital [hospitalización polivalente]

TBH, I'm not too sure of the best or standard way of translating it, but I think it stands for "hospitalización polivalente".

For example:

Hospitalización Polivalente
Habitación de hospitalización

El Hospital de Alta Resolución El Toyo dispone de la denominada Unidad Polivalente. Se trata de una alternativa a la hospitalización convencional, en la que se desarrolla la atención a pacientes en régimen de hospital de día médico, hospital de día quirúrgico, observación de urgencias y hospitalización de corta estancia.

La Unidad Polivalente es un mecanismo de soporte estructural y funcional. Su objetivo es lograr una gestión eficiente y flexible de los recursos destinados a la atención de los usuarios. En el caso de El Toyo, se cuenta con 22 módulos, de uso individual, además de un área central con 10 puestos de sillones, usados como soporte para la actividad quirúrgica. Estos recursos son usados de forma polivalente, en función de las necesidades asistenciales.

Another point is the relevance, or lack thereof, to your context...

neutral  Joseph Tein: As you mention about context ...good guess, but it seems unlikely that they would stick in a mention of this hospitalizacion polivalente in the same sentence as the diagnosis.

  -> Yeah, it was just an idea if it was on a different line or something or a hashed up PDF conversion...you never know.

agree  Samuel Sebastian Holden Bramah: In this case I think it means where the diagnosis was performed, since if that hospital is not the "Hospital Polivalente" [which does exist] then it could indicate that they don't have the full history of that diagnosis or action taken.
