When engaging in urban warfare across towns and cities, commanders often found it advantageous to capture any civilian Hospitals in the area. Like any other civilian facility, Hospitals could be captured by infantry possessing the Capture Building upgrade. Once captured, a general could use the staff and facilities of the Hospital to provide better medical support for his infantry across the battlefield - injured personnel would receive treatment as soon as they retreated from combat. Also, in the same vein as other civilian facilities, Hospitals could easily be captured or destroyed by the enemy if left unguarded.
