A slang contraction of the word "hospital." It is a noteworthy coincidence that this is also the actual word for "hospital" in the Albanian language.

In certain neighborhoods of Philadelphia Pa, among emergency responders, it is a direct reference to two locations in Albert Einstein Medical Center: The ER, and the Fourth Floor Intensive Care Unit.
