Best way to make money? Empty Best way to make money?

Hi,

I am running at day 54 now with Emergency, Surgical and ICU. The patient income is 42 with one ambulance. Question is how do you think is the best way to proceed? I cannot get enough money to setup new department (unless I wait for 50 days more or something). I tried to take a 200k$ loan to create complete internal diseases department but it made the things even worse. I really need more patients to make more money but also the ambulances cause a lot of money and they only bring 2 extra patients per day. (Also after loading the game, the actual ambulance seems to be gone but the extra two patient income is still there, bug perhaps?)

I run a decent profit (for a medium-sized) hospital (about 40-50k a day). Started with a robust emergency clinic to generate income (albeit much less than a hospitalized or ambulance patient) yet the volume offsets this somewhat. Also, concentrate on completing objectives with insurance companies that reward gov't grants 20k-50k, as well as base hospital goals. otherwise, some of this is merely waiting to build the revenue. Also, when beginning a dept. patience is key. Start with the clinic side first; treating outpatient folks, and then build-up into a full-fledged hospitalizing unit.

Wow, 40-50k$ profit daily! I am hardly on +- zero every day. I've completed insurance companies objectives but the next one requires 50 patients to be treated which means opening a new department or getting more ambulances. It's somewhat annoying that even prestige is ~95% every day, still it's not rewarded anyway. In my opinion my hospital is running just great but it seems that it's not enough Sad

As long as you have a good base emergency clinic with several doctors you should be well on your way to 50 patients. I remember thinking that would be monumental when I was clearing the 30 patient-per-day goal, yet, as you expand the beds in your departments(s) it'll creep up.

Today I went by an advise I read somewhere to indeed open full clinics for each department first before even dreaming of hospitalization. Now I have a nice decent daily income and will start to dedicate floors to different departments and hospitalization. Cross my fingers.

You can save a lot of money by hiring only "low-level" staff, like interns. To guarantee qualitiy and effectivness of your hospital, you have then to take controll over treatment of your patients....

Which again brings us back to some kind of automatic setting for switching on player controlled diagnosis Wink
Did we give the devs enough reason yet to implement, Humppamonster? Laughing

The way I do it is setup your departments basic elements (waiting room, drs office, and reception) at first but planning on expansion excluding emergency and ICU, I save expanding these for last. The reason for this is because if you create trauma and ICU room's, you get more critical patients which costs you more money. If you unlock all insurance companies (by creating the needed departments) you get grants, $$$ from completed goals, and more patients which all brings you in more $$$. I hospitalized as needed which is most of the time which with the large amounts of grants you get is pretty easy as long as you plan out the space you need ahead of time. In all my games by doing this I am always making over 50-90k with a current bank account over 1.5mil.

One this I do recommend is to edit the file to expand your staff limit from 200 to 500 as long as your computer can support this. I say this because I have tried with only 200 staff and it is almost impossible to get a smooth running hospital without more staff.
