    • B.

      Acute-care facilities

    • C.

These facilities are equipped with specialized medical equipment, staffed with healthcare professionals trained in emergency medicine, and have resources to provide critical care and perform surgeries. Long-term care facilities focus on providing extended care and support for individuals with chronic illnesses or disabilities, while chronic-care facilities specifically cater to patients requiring ongoing management of chronic conditions. Since most hospitals are not primarily designed for long-term or chronic care, the correct answer is acute-care facilities.
