The healthcare sector is the third largest consumer of water of all commerical buildings in the U.S. The median water use intensity of a hospital is 55 gallons per square foot per year, and 315 gallons per bed per day. A hospital the size of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, that would equal 66 million gallons per year.
