Amazon is selling actual hospital rooms

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

Geiger said he's currently seeing an uptick in interest from hospitals in using the units for things like simulation labs, or urgent care facilities.
