Very big tycoon/management fan that I wished Theme Hospital had
Will there be multi-story hospitals where we can place elevator banks? I see we can create departments so it would be realistic if we can place elevator banks for the different zones. Also, will our hospital be able to deliver babies? Would be great to have a neo-natal wing complete with nurseries. The management fan side of me would love to be able to place roads, parking lots, ambulatory zone, ER entrance, and parking garages. Hospitals/Medical centers are like cities within cities along with winding roads and parking lots spread out depending on the department ie...main entrance, ER, visiting, surgical, in/out patient care etc
Interesting, the picture doesn't currently show elements like parking garages, multiple roads, etc. It'll be interesting to see what size the map ends up being and if they decide to include those elements or not.
I'll also be curious to see how much OB they decide to implement. Could be fun having to plan out, for example, having an OR near the delivery wing for C-sections. Likewise, having a NICU could add a whole new element.
For that matter, I'll be curious to see how many different departments and specialties they decide to include. I'm checking the forums and website multiple times a week but, at the moment, it looks like we'll just have to wait for more details. :)
Hi, sorry for the late reply :) Quite a few of the features you mentioned should make it to the game, especially ambulances & ER entrance. In sandbox mode, you'll be also able to edit the outdoor areas around your hospital. We're not planning on having maternity/children hospitals in the main game, let's see how big a demand there will be for a possible future update.
