Tertiary refers to the third level in a hierarchy of some sort. In healthcare, commonly the hierarchy is

1) primary care  Doctors office

2) Secondary care  A community hospital

3) Tertiary care-  a Medical Center

4) Some would add Quartenary care (Like a specialized transplant center)

 

You question may refer to some other hierarchy. If you have a context we can probably help translate.
