theatre

Here is my best explanation:

'hospital room' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'treat poorly ambassador inside' is the subsidiary indication.

'poorly' indicates anagramming the letters.

'ambassador' becomes 'he'.

'inside' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'treat' with letters rearranged gives 'tatre'.

'tatre' placed around 'he' is 'theatre'.
