Amazon is selling actual hospital rooms

February 6, 2019

A company called EIR Healthcare is now selling units of its hospital room, called MedModular, for $814 a square foot on Amazon.com, according to an article on the CNBC website.

The design is customizable but all the rooms come with a bathroom and a bed. The rooms cost $285,000 each
