Welcome to the forum, HUSEE. .
Please use a capital letter for the first person pronoun I
'I was in hospital' would normally be used with a past-time expression, or as a response to some question such as, "Where were you last week/month/etc?".
"I have been to hospital" simply tells us that at some time in your life you have been a patient in a hospital. You would not normally expect to see it without some such expression as 'sveral times'.
