The "Green Moon" — a universal symbol for hospitals — in the admissions department of New New York Hospital

Hospitals were places of work in which employees (including doctors, nurses and administrative staff) sought to heal temporary residents, damaged organic life called "patients". These institutions varied greatly in character. Some were small and make-shift — as on battlefields during time of war. Others were imposing, solid buildings with long histories of general care. Not a few specialized in particular kinds of medical care, like mental health. Still others gave themselves over to medical research, in which those admitted were more "subject" than "patient".

Perhaps because of the Doctor's outlook on life — not to mention his very name — many of the more important events in his life took place in hospitals. It was not uncommon for his own regeneration, injury to his companion or the presence of alien menace to land him in a hospital. Similarly, the Torchwood 3 team — and, to a lesser extent, Sarah Jane Smith and Mr. Smith — monitored the pattern of hospital admissions for any sign of threat to Earth.

As regenerative patient

While the Doctor's TARDIS was the more usual location for regeneration, he sometimes found himself in a human hospital during or immediately after the event. His third incarnation was the first to recover in hospital. Weakened from Time Lord-enforced change, the Doctor was taken from just outside his TARDIS to the Ashbridge Cottage Hospital in Essex. There, under the care of Dr. Henderson, his binary vascular system and unusual brain activity were first documented by humans. (DW: Spearhead from Space). Later, when he had just regenerated into his fourth self, he spent time in the field hospital at UNIT Headquarters near London. There, Dr. Harry Sullivan again noted the presence of two hearts and ineffectually tried to get the Doctor to rest in bed. (DW: Robot)

However, the regeneration in which a hospital played the most significant role was that resulting in the Doctor's eighth life. It is likely, in fact, that the surgical staff of Walker General Hospital in San Francisco, led by Dr. Grace Holloway actually killed the Seventh Doctor on the operating table. Dismissing X-rays which clearly showed the presence of two hearts, and misreading the Doctor's rapid pulse for symptoms of cardiac arrest, emergency room attendant, Dr. Swift, called for emergency cardiac surgery. Dr. Holloway then ordered anasthesia and an invasive procedure which, though undoubtedly sound procedure for a human patient, proved fatal for that incarnation of the Doctor. His body was taken to the hospital's morgue, where he regenerated. Suffering post-regenerative trauma, the new Doctor imprinted on Dr. Holloway, the last person he saw as his former self, and the pair subsequently thwarted the plans of the Master to take over the Doctor's remaining lives. (DW: Doctor Who)

As non-regenerative patient

On occasion, the Doctor sought medical care outside the scope of a regenerative crisis. Consequent to an explosion in a quarry, the Doctor came under the care of an intern at an unknown English hospital for an injury to his forearm. After shrugging off his own injuries, he used Dr. Carter's pathology laboratory to determine that Sarah Jane's more serious injuries were due to a threat from a silicon-based entity known as Eldrad. (DW: The Hand of Fear). Later, in the year 5000, the Fourth Doctor sought the specialized help of Dr. Marius at the Bi-Al Foundation to rid himself of infection by The Swarm. The innovative procedure required the Doctor and Leela to shrink to microcopic size and be injected into his own body, in order to precisely target the threat to his blood stream. (DW: The Invisible Enemy)

The Doctor also once faked vague symptoms so he could be admitted to Royal Hope Hospital to better investigate H2O scoops he noticed on the hospital grounds. There, he was examined by medical student Martha Jones, who subsequently assisted the Doctor in returning the hospital to London, after it had been teleported to the Moon. (DW: Smith and Jones)

Opinions about hospitals

The Doctor sometimes expressed strong views about hospitals. In particular, the Eighth Doctor noted an aversion to hospitals, arising from his regeneration in Walker General Hospital in San Francisco. (EDA: Legacy of the Daleks, Kursaal) The Tenth Doctor confirmed this displeasure with hospitals, saying that "they give me the creeps". However, he had an affinity for their little gift shops, as they clearly indicated where the hospital exit was. (DW: New Earth, Smith and Jones, Silence in the Library)

Companions

As part of staff

A few of the Doctor's companions were employed by hospitals prior to their involvement with the Doctor. Dr. Grace Holloway was a cardiologist as Walker General Hospital. (DW: Doctor Who. Hex was an emergency room nurse at St. Gart's Hospital in London. (BFA: The Gathering), and Martha Jones was a student doctor at Royal Hope Hospital in London prior to meeting the Doctor. (DW: Smith and Jones)

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Hospital berthed a great number and variety of freighters and transports.

Hospital was an XQ2 Platform located in deep space, a short hyperspace jump from Brint-wo Colony.

In the aftermath of the Battle of Hoth, many injured Rebels were taken to this station for treatment and rehabilitation under Commander Beckman; they were watched over by the MC40a light cruiser Shadow. Their respite was short-lived, however, as an Imperial task force, led by Admiral Garreth Holtz commanding the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Corrupter, dropped out of hyperspace and began a TIE Bomber assault of the hospital.

During the fighting, both Ace and Emon Azzameen distinguished themselves by destroying many TIEs. Thanks primarily to their efforts, at least 66% of the Rebel personnel escaped. Despite their bravery, they were unable to save the Vasudra, a bacta supply ship crewed by their father and brother. Both Tomaas and Galin Azzameen were lost, and presumed killed in the battle.

The hospital itself was evacuated by the Rebels, and then seized by the Imperials.

Behind the scenes

The exact location of the Rebel hospital is not specified in Star Wars: X-wing Alliance.

Although many of the allotment of Rebel ships parked at the base carry wounded from the Battle of Hoth, it is uncertain if these ships, particularly the two GR-75 Medium Transports, were present at the engagement.

Overview

Every city zone in Paragon City and the Rogue Isles has a hospital or medical center. In terms of in-game mechanics, these hospitals are where your character will be resuscitated if your character is defeated and you choose to be taken to the hospital. If you are defeated in an area with a hospital, you will be resuscitated at that zone's hospital. If you are in a zone without a hospital or are on a mission map that doesn't have its own resuscitation area, you will be taken to the hospital of whichever zone you most recently visited that had one.

Most hazard zones and trial zones do not have their own hospitals or resuscitation areas. Exceptions include Dark Astoria.
