    Sector 394 - Officies of physicians, dentists, and other health practitioners is still appropriate. In I-O, what matters most is what the sector purchases and pays in wages. Since this office provides the services that physicians' offices provide, we want it to be purchasing those things that physician's offices need. If the expenditure values you have for the hospital include its expenditures on the physician's office, then you will need to subtract those expenditures out before impacting the hospital, otherwise you will double-count the physician's office. If you want this hospital and office to run like a non-profit, you can edit the study area data for these sectors to zero-out OPTI and IBT. You will then need to rebuild your multipliers (Options > Construct > Multipliers).
