    I would say: "The hospital is in Hospital Street". I think Americans would say "...on Hospital Street".

    Yes, we would say "on" for that.

    (It's at the corner of Hospital Street and Spruce Avenue.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
