Chronic conditions

Hi, I’m really interested to find out whether it is in the initial plan for the game to be dealing with patients managing chronic conditions. By contrast, Theme Hospital’s patients all presented acutely with conditions that would be resolved within one visit. What about a patient who has non-life-threatening conditions but which need continual maintenance and checkups. The kind of departments that deal with this often would be gastroenterology or rheumatology dealing with Autoimmune issues - first diagnosis, often treatment of an acute presentation, then maintenance of an ongoing remission. What about patients receiving palliative treatments? As a sufferer of Ulcerative Colitis, the former is my main experience of hospitals!

It is a really good point.
A good idea might be to create day hospital or ambulatory treatment. Routine activity could be really stressful if you have 30 patients and only one doctor available for ambulatory visits. It can add challenge to hospital management

Very good point. Having doctors juggling outpatient clinics for various specialities plus dealing with ward patients and admitting new patients would give an interesting dynamic. The more doctors the easier but that would harm profits (assuming you are a private hospital).
