Where is the Hospital in Sims 4?

The hospital doesn’t play the most important role in Sims 4, but it’s crucial to know where it is. But finding the hospital is not an easy thing to do in this game, especially if you’re a beginner. You may search for days in all the different neighborhoods and worlds, but if you don’t own a specific Sims 4 DLC, you will never see a hospital on your screen. So, is there a hospital in Sims 4? And where the hell is it?

You can find the Sims 4 hospital in the Civic Center neighborhood of the Willow Creek world. The hospital is simply called Willow Creek Hospital, and it’s a community lot that can’t be edited without cheats. You must own The Sims 4: Get to Work expansion pack to visit the hospital.

What happens if you don’t have the Sims 4: Get to Work expansion pack?

The base game of Sims 4 doesn’t have an actual hospital lot, but it offers all the medical processes. In the base game, the hospital is just another “rabbit hole” where your Sims disappear for a couple of hours and days. And just like with schools, you can’t see what you’re Sims are doing while there.

However, if you visit the Willow Creek Hospital, you’ll actually see the hospital. You’ll see doctors and patients occupying the lot. You can send your Sim for a number of different reasons in the hospital. Also, if you play with the doctor career, your Sims will get to work there too!

How Do You Go to the Hospital in Sims 4?

If you’re interested in visiting the hospital, here’s what you need to know.

The most popular way to visit the hospital in Sims 4 is for your Sim to be in labor. When your Sim is in labor, you will have the option to choose where they’ll have the childbirth. And if you choose the Willow Creek Hospital, your Sim will automatically get taken there once the time is right. While there, you’ll get to watch your pregnant Sim get treated as regular people in the real world.

On the other hand, you can also visit the hospital if your Sim is a doctor. As a doctor, your Sim will perform different kinds of tasks, mainly around treating patients. You’ll get to go to all rooms in the hospital buildings and experience the entire career. 

Here’s our complete guide on the doctor career in Sims 4 if you’re interested in knowing more.

Why Can’t I Go to the Hospital in Sims 4?

Now you know where the hospital is in Sims 4 and how to reach it. However, some people have the problem of not being able to reach it. And so, here’s what could be wrong.

The biggest reason why you can’t go to the hospital in Sims 4 is that you don’t own the Get to Work expansion pack. The world and the lot on which is the hospital comes with this DLC, so you can’t have it without purchasing the GTW expansion pack first. In the base game, your Sims will still be able to go to a hospital, but you won’t follow them.

Another thing I see often is that people want to visit the hospitals they see on the internet. In reality, a lot of YouTubers have custom-made hospitals that introduce new places in the game. For example, this Private Practice mod is one of the best extensions for the game. It adds a brand new hospital and a new job/career for your Sims. 


I hope this guide helped you figure out where the hospital is in Sims 4 and how to reach it. Unfortunately, the situation is not ideal, especially if you don’t own the Get to Work DLC. In that case, I suggest you download and install a mod that adds a hospital to your game. I mentioned the Private Practice mod above, so maybe try that one first.

Happy simming!

    • 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. 😉
