Network slicing (NS) is a utilitarian technology that enables heterogeneous smart use cases in Fifth Generation (5G) and beyond networks. Smart hospitals require NS to realize its applications with diverse network requirements, which can not facilitate via traditional networks in hospital environments. NS can be performed under different strategies based on dynamicity, ownership, and application. This paper investigates how these strategies can be utilized in different smart hospital applications. The performance of each slicing strategy in a hospital network is analyzed under three matrices: bandwidth utilization, handover count, and block count.
