Initial Blurb:

Health Minister Tarquin Foxbridge has requested our assistance. The county's public health system, the TPHS, is struggling to cope. Duckworth Hospital, one of the few remaining public hospitals, has lost its administrator. Lord Foxbridge has proposed that we help run this public hospital. Could be good for us. Nudge nudge, wink wink.

If we can meet the Ministry's targets we'll receive some of the County's healthcare budget, but we won't receive income for any diagnosis, treatment, or retail. This could be interesting...

Level Notes
This level is winnable! Among all the levels of Two Point Hospital, this is known as being one of the most difficult. This is precisely because it requires putting most of what you've figured out about a profitable hospital behind and requires a totally different approach to running your hospital. Your main source of income will be the periodic targets you are issued, and on top of that, you still have to balance all the normal tasks of running a hospital.

- You still get income through ways outside of diagnosis, treatment, and vending machines. Emergencies, VIP visits, and curing Abominable Curse epidemics will provide occasional boosts (provided you see them through) . Research for money is a guaranteed way to get occasional spurts of $20,000.

  • I always recommend building the marketing room, and this level is no exception. A large amount of your targets will simply be running campaigns. The room will also be invaluable in helping raise your reputation and giving you a larger pool of staff to pick from. Also, you just need to launch the campaign to get the money, not complete it. You're totally OK to do this in rapid succession (assuming you have the money).

- Massive profits are NOT the goal in this level, and honestly, you shouldn't really be too worried about running out of money. There will be enough variety of tasks that you'll be OK to figure it out, especially when you start getting 2 or 3 at a time. Just follow the targets as best as you can. The amount of money you get from completing them does increase as the level goes on. Some of the tasks, like Diagnose 5 Patients, you will already do anyway! If you really get stuck on a target, just X it out and wait for a new one to replace it.

- You can always take out a loan to do something very quickly, and usually the influx of money gained will be enough to immediately pay it all back.

- As you will often get the "Promote a Staff Member" target, and especially because staff promotions/salaries are the biggest chunk of your budget, make sure you hit "Not Now" when you get multiple promotions in a row, and save them instead for right when you get that specific target to make quick and easy cash. There is only a minor subtraction of happiness from lack of training, and a bit more from promotion. However, in this level, it made sense for me to think of the staff as more disposable than usual.

- Not that this makes things much better, but you have quite a cushion before you become bankrupt. It's OK to be down in debt or utilize loans as necessary to help you get by and meet goals. When you will run into problems is when, just like other hospitals, you aren't able to reach goals at all month after month and you can't dig yourself out. The new way this level works almost encourages you to just focus on short-term goals rather than long-term growth.

- A good method is to routinely pause the game. This will go so counter-intuitive to some players, but it really does make a difference. With time passing so quickly, sometimes a quick pause and think can help you figure out a solution.

- Your janitors are actually among the most important staff members in this whole level - they will be responsible for a large number of targets. These include watering plants, unblocking toilets, restocking vending machines, and getting the hospital's Attractiveness to a certain level. As such, you'll want to train them in stamina and efficiency! They're also cheaper staff to hire, objectively speaking.

- You don't need to wait for your plants to die, vending machines to go empty, or toilets to go completely blocked to complete the task. Once they're used at least once, they can be fixed or filled or watered appropriately.

- You will most likely be stuck on staff morale as your last goal holding you back. Even though it sounds impossible (you want 90% staff happiness with this stupid payment model?!?!), it's fairly easy. Make sure all of your staff are paid at least above average, make sure go to through the whole list and send anyone whose mood is low on a break, and promote/train your staff (it will negate their mood if they aren't). Make sure you go through and do this for each category of staff. Also, remember to invest extra in your rooms. A well-decorated room only gives you additional buffs.
