Hi, thanks for the report!

The first issue should be hopefully easy to solve on your side, just extend the reception room by a few tiles in front of the reception desk, so patients have some space to wait at - you can check the reception prefabs for reference.

Regarding the shortest route, yes, characters currently select closest objects based on distance, not route distance - the second approach would be really computationally expensive, although there might be some solutions I can try to have a look at when there's some extra time.
There will be a useful improvement related to this in the next patch though, employees will start preferring rooms marked staff-only, so you'll have more control about who uses which rooms (for example wcs).

Is the reception desk really the problem? I was more concerned about the time, patients arrive. After 18:00, the hospital should be closed. And didn't got even all 50 patients before 1800.

Hi, yes, I'm pretty sure it is. Smile Basically this way the patients can only visit the reception one by one, always walking all the way from one corner of the map, which takes much more time then if they all walk there all at once (when they have the room to wait) and then just take turns talking to the receptionist. Let me know if it doesn't help, but this should be it.
