The Drink Machine is the only source of drink available to the patients and visitors at your hospital. Hovering over the machine will give you a display of how many people have used it. It costs £500 to buy. Selling lots of drinks may award you with a special trophy at the yearly appraisal screen.

Fire extinguisher[]

Theme Hospital fire

The Fire extinguisher refers to single Red Fire extinguisher that can be bought and placed around your hospital as a form of fire protection. They cost £25 per Fire extinguisher and an unlimited amount can be bought. Placing one near machinery will reduce the amount of breakdowns.


Theme Hospital Radiators

Radiators refer to small White Radiators that you can buy for your hospital. They can be placed, in any number, in both rooms and in the corridor. They of course work to keep the hospital warm and the more you place the easier it is to keep all areas warm.


Theme Hospital plants

Plants refer to small plants that the player can place around the hospital for £5 each. They can be arranged in any way but look awesome when arranged in trees. Plants raise the happiness levels of your patients and members of staff and make your hospital look great for the inspectors.
