Would "The hospital is by the school" work too?

I don't think so. "By" means "near" "in the general area" "Το νοσοκομείο είναι κοντά στο σχολείο." whereas "next to" means the building directly to the right or left of the school.

OK, thanks for the explanation! Note that "near" is given as a translation when hovering over "δίπλα".
