Theme Hospital receptionist

The receptionist is a member of hospital staff which you hire to manage the reception of your hospital in the business simulation video game "Theme Hospital". Patients visiting the hospital first approach and talk to the receptionist before being sent to see a Doctor in the GP's Office.

The receptionist, like all other members of staff at the hospital, can have negative traits which may leave you to question if they are worth hiring, as this could effect their performance.


Just like in a real hospital, the receptionist can be heard using a tannoy system to make hospital wide announcements informing the patients, staff and the player of event. These announcements range from paging members of staff to go to a Hospital Room, tips to the user and some joke announcements.

  • We have a V.I.P. with us.
  • We apologize for the amount of litter.

  • Morgue patients are asked to be as quiet as possible.
