    A hospital may have patients that cannot be moved far, or quickly.  Putting shelters in there as well seems to make sense to me.

    And as another commenter suggested, you can make these things dual use.  I have a cold storage room in my basement that is lined and roofed with poured concrete, and will be a fine storm shelter if needed.  In the meantime it has a regular use as well.  Perhaps the emergency shelter in a public building could double as a place for the emergency generator and supplies, since you also want that to survive in a storm.
