It's a matter of laugh or death in Theme Hospital™, another installment of the Theme series. Design, maintain and manage a hi-tech hospital facility, making the most of limited resources and turning cures into cash. The Grim Reaper stalks the corridors, the ill have some very odd ailments, and the staff want to play doctors and nurses together. No matter how you look at it, you're in control of a very sick hospital.
If there is one word that describes Theme Hospital then it has to be “hilarious.” Almost everything in this game is made with great dose of humour. You might think that someone's illness is not a laughing matter but wait till you see a patient with KingComplex dressed as Elvis or serious case of Hairyitis caused from prolonged exposure to the moon. Finding treatments for such diseases is a part of your job, but there’s no prescription to cure the insanity that may result from trying to figure out those cures. You start off small with an empty building, a few doctors, a general diagnostic, a pharmacy, a reception desk, and a few other necessities. From there it’s up to you to move your way up in the health care industry.
A hospital simulator is not something you might consider a good theme for a game but the guys from Bullfrog Productions were famous for creating innovative and fun titles from the craziest idea--and Theme Hospital no exception. This game is a piece of art and definitely the best “hospital” simulation so check it out. Our diagnosis: fun!

This is by far the best "Theme" game, hillarious, and better than any of the games in even the Theme Park series. The game is currently being ported to other platforms through the (in development) CorsixTH project. This means that by buying it here you should be able to use the files to play it on not just your PC, but also other devices such as Android phones.

This game is pure fun!
It's full of humour, but don't let that distract you! After all, you are responsible for the patients lives! The game migh look casual, but requires you to make the right decisions in order to advance to the next level. More patients mean more problems and if you don't plan your interior carefully you will quickly find yourself restarting the level.
Everyread more level there are new challenges - new diseases, timed missions, emergenices. It never gets boring! :)
