When it comes to Clinical trials, is it better to include hospitals as third party or as sub-contractors?

Answer: 

When a hospital is a service provider who will not need to get access to other parties of the project it is a typical sub-contractor. On the other hand if a clinic is affiliated to one of the partners and likes to get access to the results and perhaps IPR then it should be involved as a third party linked to the beneficiary with special clause 10 (means: the partner is responsible for the reporting, the budget and the scientific quality and is steering the hospital as an affiliated partner/(third party).
