It’s certainly true that people who are staying on this floor have been “hospitalized”, but we don’t call the floor that. People who have been hospitalized are called “inpatients” (compare to “outpatients”, who come to see a doctor and then go home), so we would call this an “outpatient floor”.

O Inpatient Floor
