Sorry to hear about the hospital.
You can lay the wire over the roof, or even around the guttering if it's not black plastic or some old Cast Iron. You could also base feed a vertical wire against an earth Stake up the guttering down pipe or even the Stench pipe for the drains if you have one.
Although height counts on VHF & UHF, it's not really important on HF.
Also have a listen to the University of Twente SDR, that uses a tine one meter long whip. Looooooooooooooooooong wires are not always the best options.
