There are a number of hospitals that provide RV parking, with hookups, for relatives of inpatients. It's mostly larger hospitals with large campuses, of course.
However, my only experience with parking my Interstate at a hospital was when I had outpatient surgery scheduled at East Jefferson General Hospital (better known around here as EJ), but no one available to drive me home afterwards. They wouldn't let me take a taxi home, either, probably because I'd be too groggy to handle money responsibly as well. So I made arrangements in advance to bring my Interstate, so that I could take a nap after the treatment and only drive home once the anesthetic had run its course. I parked in a vacant paved lot near the parking garage, and the hospital provided me a nurse to wheel me out to my Interstate and help me inside.
If a hospital allows you to park an RV on the premises, it's only common courtesy to write a thank-you letter to the hospital administration afterwards.
