Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

hi guys, I’m using this theme which contains a google map that automatically makes doctors and hospitals appear on it. I wanted to know if there was a way to change from google maps to OpenStreetMap. Do you think there will be a way? even going into ftp and changing some code or files. thank you I need it very much https://www.wmedicenters.com/doctor/

(for completeness) the theme that you're using doesn't actually make doctors and hospitals appear on it. The nearest doctor's surgey to me is not shown.

It shows the usual advertising-led rubbish that most Google maps do (and that includes some pharmacies and doctors).

The only highlighting that I can see applies as much to the local vet's as much as the local hospital. OK if you're desparate I suppose, but not exactly my first choise!

You could create a map using umap and Overpass as described in this blog post. Data would come from OpenStreetMap, which means that in some areas the map will be better (typically Western Europe) and others it might be worse (some states in USA ?)
