Theme Hospital cheats

Theme Hospital cheats is a page for all the Cheats/glitches that can be performed in Bullfrog's video game Theme Hospital. This page has cheats for all of the different platforms that the game has been released on.



To activate the cheats option, you'll need to wait until you go onto the fax screen. Once you're on this screen, type "24328" using the buttons on the fax machine and then press the green button. If entered correctly, you will hear the sound of a telephone, if done incorrectly, you will hear a single flat tone.

Back in the game, the following commands will now work:

  • Shift + C = Increase bank balance by $10,000 with every press (hold shift for a constant stream)
  • Shift + 1 = + 1 Patient
  • Ctrl + shift + C = Gain all rooms and equipment.
  • Ctrl + M = Skip to the end of the current month.
  • Ctrl + Y = Skip to the end of the year.
  • Ctrl + E = Causes an emergency.

To activate a "Rat Level" at the end of the current stage, type "7287" on the fax machine and press the green button.

You may wish to reduce the volume of the announcements, as your receptionist will continue to call you out on your cheating behaviour, every time you do it.


  • You can get rid of rubbish or sick easily by placing an item on top of it. This also works for Rat holes in the wall.
  • You can kill rats by clicking on them when you see them. If you kill enough, you get sent to a special rat killing level after you finish the level you're on.
  • You can get more time to build your hospital at the start by slowing down the game.
  • The cash offered for you to move to the next hospital level increases if you refuse to go.
  • Place fire extinguishers next to machines to decrease the number of times they break.
  • Plants placed outside rooms make staff happy up to 5 tiles away, including staff behind walls inside rooms. (To editors: Seriously, try it. Just place a plant very close to a room, but not in the room. That way, you can keep a doctor happy on hard in a 4x4 room with only a radiator, no windows and while working to 80% tiredness.)
