Icons for hospital and pharmacy

Currently the icon for a hospital is a red cross, however this icon is protected by international and national laws in most countries and may not be used for anything not related to the International Red Cross or a national Red Cross Organization - usually hospitals are not operated by the Red Cross. I suggest a blue square icon with a white letter 'H' in it as a new icon which is internationally recognizable.
Also, the icon for pharmacies, although being pink and not red, can easily be misinterpreted as a red cross and thus should also be changed, e.g. to a green cross, a white cross on green background, or the Rx-Symbol.
