Locating the Hospital in The Sims 4

In The Sims 4, the hospital might not grab the spotlight, but it holds significant importance in specific situations for your Sims. For those of you who are just starting out, figuring out where it is can be a bit tricky! Even after exploring various neighborhoods and worlds, locating the elusive hospital remains a challenge, right? So, does The Sims 4 indeed have a hospital, and if so, where can you find it?

Where Exactly Is The Hospital In The Sims 4?

The answer lies within the Civic Center neighborhood of the Willow Creek world. Here, you’ll discover the Willow Creek Hospital, a 50×50-sized special lot assignment accessible exclusively with The Sims 4: Get to Work expansion pack. Take note that this is not a lot that your Sims can reach through the world map!

The Base game hospital Vs. The Willow Creek Hospital

In the base game of The Sims 4, there is no dedicated hospital lot. Instead, much like The Sims 3, base game hospitals cater to your Sims’ medical needs through a “rabbit hole” concept. Your Sims will vanish into the hospital for a few in-game hours or days without divulging the details of their activities within. Similar to schools, the hospital in the base game remains a mysterious entity.

However, if you have The Sims 4: Get To Work Expansion Pack installed, your Sims will be able to access the Willow Creek Hospital, and the rabbit hole veil will be lifted. Your Sims can now witness a bustling medical community, complete with doctors and patients. They will be able to visit the hospital for various reasons, such as childbirth and pursuing the doctor career path.

How to Visit the Hospital in The Sims 4

If the prospect of exploring the hospital intrigues you, here’s a breakdown of how to make it happen! Take note, however, that the hospital can only be visited for particular reasons. This special lot does not function like veterinary clinics, where your Sims can visit whenever they want to.

1. Let Sims Deliver Their Baby.

Hospital 2

The most common way to visit the hospital is when your Sim is in labor. A pop-up menu will present the option of birthing your baby at home or in the hospital. Yep! Pregnant Sims can choose to have their baby at home or in the hospital. If they opt for the hospital, they would need to click “check-in” at the reception desk and then go to the room where a birthing doctor waits. Once your Sim has given birth in the hospital, they will get a birth certificate in their inventory, which they can display on their walls at home.

2. Allow Them To Work as a Doctor.

The Doctor career path is an exciting option to visit the hospital as well. Your Sims can start as an intern and work your way up to become a chief of staff. Your responsibilities will include treating patients, performing surgeries, and managing other medical personnel.

3. Use Mods.

Use mods such as the Private Practice Mod to get easy access to hospitals in the game. This is for you Simmers who are seeking additional hospital experiences. It introduces a brand-new hospital and a unique healthcare system for your Sims! Download the said mod here.

4. Add Custom-Made Hospitals.

In addition to the Willow Creek Hospital and mods, you can enhance your Sims’ hospital experiences through various custom builds. Some custom content creators for The Sims 4, including YouTubers, design custom-made hospitals that introduce new healthcare experiences in the game.

Editing The Hospital in The Sims 4

Because the Willow Creek Hospital is a special lot assignment, you cannot edit it easily. Here are the following things you should do to be able to modify the said lot:

  1. Enter the hospital: You have to gain access to the hospital to edit it. Allow pregnant SIms to give birth, or accompany a Doctor Sim to work at the hospital.
  2. Pause the game: Once your Sims are inside the hospital, pause the game to prevent your Sim from moving or engaging in any activities.
  3. Enable cheats: Press Ctrl+Shift+C on PC/Mac or all four shoulder buttons on the console to open the cheat console.
  4. Activate Free Build: Enter the following cheats:
    • testingcheats on: Enable cheats for the game.
    • bb.enablefreebuild: Enable free build mode for the lot.
  5. Start customizing: You’ll now be able to access build mode and modify the hospital layout.
  6. However, it’s important to ensure that the essential medical equipment and facilities remain intact. Retain important things like a reception desk, surgery table, exam beds, chemical analyzer, medical treadmill, X-ray machine, and a PC for records.
  7. Don’t forget to make the hospital look nice by adding furniture and decorations that you like for a friendly and professional vibe!



Visiting the hospital in The Sims 4 can become quite a challenge, especially since it’s a special lot assignment, plus you would also need to use cheats just to edit the venue. But it’s all worth it just to see how the in-game health services work!

    • Hello Janet, if you have The Sims 4: Get To Work Expansion Pack installed, you can indeed only visit the hospital if your pregnant Sim is in labor or if your Sim is a doctor. Hospitals are a special lot assignment in the game, thus it does not function like a usual lot and cannot be edited in build mode. Hope this helps! 🙂

        • Hello Frida! If your Sims are sick, they can purchase medicines by ordering via the computer. These medicines, which are available in little brown bottles in the inventory, can make them well again. Take note that illnesses from poisoning or rodents are treated differently. 😉
