Nice! - Maybe you will be interested in the project we are busy working on to create a canonical map of health sites around the world - there is a beta version http://staging.healthsites.io. It will be great to collaborate with you if you are interested.

There is always http://geonames.org - though OSM folks don’t usually like it because the licensing is unclear. It does have a very good database of place names (and a public API) though.
