Ohio State University Hospitals in Columbus, Ohio have similar robots that they use for delivery. I'm not sure about the details of what they do or their entire operational area but I have seen them riding elevators and cruising the halls. No, I wasn't on medication at the time...they are really there.
Emory University hospital had robots 8-10 years ago delivering food from the kitchen to patients floors. I remember if you got close to one, it would stop & beep at you to move. Then it would continue its course. The robots had their own elevators. Today the robots are gone. The skinny elevators still exists. Not sure why they were discontinued.
