Description: 

The game revolves the player designing a hospital from scratch, where they must set out building up rooms (or facilities) in a hospital, and hiring doctors, nurses, handymen and receptionists to operate it. Rooms are built by placing down a blueprint, assigning the location of doors and windows, and then placing down furniture (each room has needed items, but can have more added to it); the bigger the room, the more windows it has, and the more equipped it is, the happier the staff member will be in it. In addition to rooms, the player may also set up items in the open corridor spaces provided, including drink machines, benches, plants, fire extinguishers, and reception desks (the latter is needed to assign patients to a GP's office). Rooms can be edited at any time to change them around, or remove them at any time. In addition, the player may adjust the temperature given out by the radiators in their hospital, and even purchase land to expand their hospital into, providing more space for additional rooms.

Some rooms are fundamentally required for the running of the hospital and to ensure a good start for it, such as GP's offices (to start and finish the diagnosis process), Staff Rooms (the more items dedicated to rest, the quicker staff will recover), and Toilets (patients who spend a good amount of time in the hospital will need to go here), while others provide aid in further diagnosis or in giving treatment. Most rooms provided have machinery which has to be maintained; if they get overused and neglected for a long time, they may explode, destroying a room (which then can't be removed) and killing any patients & staff within them. To avoid this, players can have the equipment repaired, or replaced (at a cost).
