Theme Hospital Clinic: Technical data

"Your research department has developed the UltraScanner."

Overview

A treatise on fluid dynamics

Now that you've had some practice in designing and building a hospital, here are some of the more technical aspects summarized for easy reference.

  • Diseases
  • Rooms - building
  • Rooms - maintaining
  • Rooms - diagnosis charges
  •  

    Diseases

    There are 33 diseases available in the game, but you won't get all of them until the later levels. Each time you start a new level you have to 'discover' the diseases anew. Some disease cures are already available to you, others need to be researched along with the diagnosis rooms required to recognize them. 

    The cure price varies with your reputation in that disease: 

      Charge = Cure price * reputation / 500 

    You can charge more or less for each disease by adjusting the pricing percentage. 

    Every emergency patient that you handle also pays a treatment charge, the bonus is for handling the emergency by healing most or all of the patients.

    Rooms - building

    Each room takes up valuable space, and costs can vary considerably depending on function. Rooms also have a minimum size for the furniture to fit into (it is usually best to build larger), and the amount of space they take up has to fit into the existing hospital design. 

    Room cost goes down when research improves the cost to buy/replace a machine instead of its strength. 

    Rooms that have identical suggested sizes are largely interchangeable, use this as you design the transition from early in a level to the long term.

    Rooms - maintaining

    Set to deep fry and damn the insurance

    Rooms that have repairable machines also incur additional costs in maintenance. These costs are charged when you replace a machine with low strength. 

    Researching machine improvements will bring the cost of a machine down when it has reached maximum strength. 

    All other rooms have no charge for maintenance.

    Rooms - diagnosis charges

    There are 10 diagnosis rooms in the game, but you won't get all of them until the later levels. Each time you start a new level you will have to research some of these rooms again, but some that you have to research on early levels are given free on later levels. 

    The charge price varies with your overall reputation: 

      price = diagnosis charge * overall reputation / 500

    You can also charge more or less for each diagnosis machine by adjusting the pricing percentage.
