Hospitals, health systems and businesses can now purchase a hospital room on Amazon, CNBC reports.

Five things to know:

1. Amazon already offers a slew of medical supplies, from syringes to bed pans. The e-commerce giant also sells a line of 60 over-the-counter healthcare products.

2. Businesses can now purchase a “smart” hospital room on Amazon from the vendor EIR Healthcare, through a service dubbed MedModular.

3. MedModular is customizable, but all the rooms are equipped with a bathroom and a bed.

4. The rooms cost about $285,000 — or $814 per square foot — and are targeted toward hospitals and other business buyers. EIR Healthcare claims the units are more affordable that traditional construction, CNBC reports.

5. EIR Healthcare CEO Grant Geiger told CNBC that hospital customers have expressed interest in using the units as simulation labs or urgent care facilities.
