Welcome to my Two Point Hospital Strategy Guide & FAQ! Two Point Hospital was released in 2018 by Two Point Studios, a British game development company, most notable for its former Bullfrog (the British masterminds behind Theme Hospital and Theme Park, among others) employees. It's very much a "spiritual successor" to Theme Hospital, and the game feels like not just a fresh coat of paint, but really, a re-imagining of the series to bring it into the 21st century of modern gaming. It's currently available on PC, Mac, and Linux-based systems and distributed via Steam. I've now put some 230 hours into it now, and have completed the game enough to know most of its ins and outs and quirks. Two Point Studios has gone on to say that they hope this will be the first of many new re-imagined games all centered around Two Point County, the game's fictional but U.K.-inspired setting. There's already a rich world of people, places, and personalities that make this company worth following. The game's built in radio station, Two Point Radio, is by far one of the most rich and lively radio stations to come along a game in a long time.

The game is a construction management simulator / space-management type game where you are given a very small and basic hospital building to start by curing relatively simple diseases. The diseases are all imaginary and humorous, with several of them being cheeky puns. As you progress, you start dealing with hundreds of patients and really have to dial down on making your hospital efficient. You meet this challenge by hiring more and better-qualified doctors, expanding the hospital outwards to multiple buildings, and researching more advanced diagnosis and treatment rooms to accommodate a growing number of patients and diseases. As with many games of this type, this game is better played in long sessions so that you can keep track of everything going on. Similar to many other games, it also gets very tedious and at times, micro-management heavy. While you will be able to beat the game without getting down to nitty-gritty details, you will certainly require those in order to clear each and every level to its maximum three stars. For a veteran of Theme Hospital, you can expect completion of the basic game to run 40-50 hours, with anywhere between 80-120 hours for you completionists out there.

This guide will has parts for all the objects in game, some discussion on level-building, layout ideas,and in general, push you in the right direction to nail those hospitals you just aren't getting to.

Grammar note: Many terms in the game utilize UK English/British spelling. All game text is rendered as shown in game. However, I am American, so the guide is written with missing u's, s's that were written backwards as z's, and a dearth of dry wit. Excessive reading may cause British readers, especially those of Farnham in Surrey, home to Two Point Studios, to faint or go mad. You have been warned.
