Information required on Power BI licence for Power BI embeded application

I work for an organisation that is developing an application and that application has Power BI report in it. That application would be used by a chain of hospitals. The Power BI report is published on a pro licence account. Our organisation is hosting the client's data in own server.
My questions on this scenario are -
1. What Power BI licence our organisation should have?
2. Does that chain of hospiuatl too requires Power BI licenced version? If yes then which licence? Does each chain should have individual Power BI licence?
