About the Private Practice Mod in The Sims 4

Have you ever noticed how the health system in The Sims 4 is a bit meh? Yes, there is an actual in-game hospital, but it is practically nonexistent, except for our pregnant Sims and resident doctors. Even when your Sims do get sick, they can just pop a pill and be fine! We need a little more realism, especially for a game that’s supposed to mimic real life.

Private Practice Mod

However, there is a high-quality mod that overhauls the entire healthcare system in The Sims 4. Called Private Practice, this impressive mod brings real-world healthcare to your Sims’ lives. You can take your Sims to the doctor’s office for checkups, treat them for various illnesses, and even deal with medical emergencies. Read all about its radical features below!

An Overview Of The Private Practice Mod

The Private Practice mod is one of the mods produced by SimRealist, a team of modders known for creating realistic and immersive mods for The Sims 4. This group of Simmers is known for their keen attention to detail and their commitment to improving the realistic aspects of our Sims gameplay. They have released a couple of excellent mods (for free!) such as the SN Banking mod, the Organic Hair mod, the Home and Land Company mod, and the FlowFit mod.

What Are The Features of The Private Practice Mod?

This Private Practice mod introduces a ton of awesome features, and we listed some of our favorites below.

1. There is a New Lot Trait For Your Sims.

This mod adds a brand new lot trait to your game, called the Private Practice Lot Trait. This will allow you to build your own health clinics or health centers for your Sims, allowing them to physically visit anytime they have medical concerns. To build a health clinic or health center, simply start building on a non-residential lot and select the said lot trait. Then, furnish the place with the medical equipment needed, as detailed below.

The MyHealthPortal app is a pretty nifty tool for managing your Sims’ health information and for booking health appointments with their preferred clinics. Yep! Your Sims can seamlessly access the basics of healthcare with just a few taps on their phones.

Features of MyHealthPortal:

  • Appointment Scheduling: Your Sims can book their doctor’s appointments, including checkups and specialist consultations, directly from the said app.
  • Health Report Review: Sims can access their health history, such as information about their weight, blood pressure, and more.

3. Health Checkups Are Now Possible.

With the Private Practice mod, you can schedule regular health checkups to maintain your Sims’ long-term health and well-being. And well, it’s actually easy to do! Simply access the MyHealthPortal app on the phone, select “Schedule an Appointment”, then “Health Checkup”. Choose a health center, and wait for the exact day and time that the app will provide. That’s it! These checkups will provide a much-needed assessment of your Sims’ health status and identify potential health risks.

Health Checkup Process:

  • Check-In: Everything starts with this. Sims must use the Check-in Kiosk for the checkup.
  • Urinalysis: Next, Sims must provide a urine sample for analysis. They could use the bathrooms in the health center. Urine samples must be placed on the nearby shelves.
  • Weight and Blood Pressure Measurement: Receive feedback on your Sim’s fitness and blood pressure levels, through the Wellness Kiosk.
  • Consultation with a Nurse Practitioner: The results of the checkup will be consolidated, and a Health Report will be available via the MyHealthPortalApp.
  • Check-Out: Once the Health Report is available, Sims can now proceed to the check-out area to pay for their medical bills.
  • Medication Purchase (if necessary): If your Sim has high or low blood pressure, they can purchase medication from the Capsule Kiosk (Pharmacy), which will help them effectively manage their health conditions.

4. Sims Can Have Illnesses, Allergies, Emergencies, Etc.

The best thing about the Private Practice Mod is its incorporation of lifelike health incidents, situations, and illnesses for our Sims. Here are some of these:

Allergies System


Allergies, a common part of human life, are now a reality for your Sims too. The Private Practice mod introduces an innovative allergies system that allows you to identify and manage your Sims’ sensitivities. There will be a variety of allergens such as pollen, dust, grass, and specific foods. Even certain environments that can cause triggers. Track your Sims’ allergies closely and take proactive measures to avoid these triggers, prevent uncomfortable reactions, and keep them feeling their best.

Additional Viruses

Private Practice Mod 2

The vanilla Sims 4 health system can feel a bit monotonous after a while. The Private Practice mod can spice things up by launching additional viruses in the gameplay. This includes the Norovirus and the Mononucleosis viruses, both with unique causes and symptoms. These two, however, can only be treated by keeping your Sims resting at home.

Infections System


Infections can also be a major concern in any household, and the Private Practice mod doesn’t take them lightly. With the mod, there is now an infection system that tracks the spread of diseases between Sims. Sims can contract icky infections through various means, such as having contact with other Sims, contaminated objects, and even the environment. They can get Strep Infections, Ear Infections, and Respiratory Infections.

Cold and Flu System


Well, who hasn’t experienced the nastiness of a cold or flu? The Private Practice mod also brings these familiar and bothersome ailments to The Sims 4. Sims can now catch the Common Cold and Influenza Virus, depending on the current season. The medication for these is the ConEx Cold & Flu Medicine, as well as lots of tea and rest.

Medical Emergencies

Private Practice Mod 1

Life can throw unexpected curveballs even to our Sims, and our featured mod recognizes this reality. Sims can now experience medical emergencies like heart attacks. Such a critical situation would require Clopidogrel medication. A hearty surgery might also be needed to prevent further attacks and to avoid death.
