I'm a freelance web developer, my wife has a craft business that she runs part-time Sept thru May, full-time June thru August (she's a teacher). We work both businesses from home. We both have a GMB listing using the same address.Don't. Why would it make sense to have 2 listings for the same business?
If you have two different businesses I would expect two different names and two different phone numbers. That would mean different NAPs, that only share a common address. If not, you are doing it wrong.I'm a freelance web developer, my wife has a craft business that she runs part-time Sept thru May, full-time June thru August (she's a teacher).

Mine is set up as a service area listing that hides the address. Her's is a regular listing that shows the address. We each have plenty of reviews. And as far as I can tell, two distinct businesses in Google's beady little eyes.
That said - there's a chance, at some point, Google could count both as the same listing and combine them which would be interesting. I'm not worried but for those who play it safe, it's probably better to have one business per address.
The overlapping categories would likely cause an issue. Isn't Urgent Care a separate GMB category? Do they have separate websites?Ok how about a clinic that has a family medicine clinic and an urgent Care clinic in the same building, but they've rebranded the urgent Care as "express" and they're technically two distinct business units?
Same address, overlapping categories and distinct phone numbers and similar but different names.
Nope, same root domain, different landing pages. It doesn't seem like the listings are being suppressed - they are showing up when you search for them. But they aren't showing very highly in Google Maps when you search for the relevant business category/unit that they are.The overlapping categories would likely cause an issue.
