During Pokemon Go's Hall H presentation at SDCC, Niantic Labs CEO confirmed that players would be able to transform PokeStops into Pokemon Centers in a future update of Pokemon Go. In the Pokemon universe, Pokemon Centers are hospitals that players visit to heal their Pokemon.  

According to Hanke, they want to eventually add customization options to PokeStops, which will encourage players to visit different PokeStops. Other customization options weren't elaborated on, but they probably include training dojos or trading centers or even a Day Care Center to raise Pokemon. 

It was mentioned that Pokemon training was top on Niantic's list of features they want to add to Pokemon Go, so it's possible that Niantic will kill two birds with one stone.
