A hospital in EarthBound.

A hospital is a building that can be found in most towns in EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound, and was replaced by hot springs in Mother 3. Status ailments, such as being knocked unconscious, can be restored here.

In EarthBound Beginnings

The nurse standing at the front desk can be spoken to in order to revive an unconscious party member, while the doctor in the back room can heal characters who have caught a damaging status ailment, those being a cold or poison. Hospitals can be found in each town, including in Magicant, with the exceptions being Snowman and Youngtown. Hospitals in later towns will charge a higher treatment fee. There are three hospitals with unique attributes:

  • Magicant's hospital can heal any character's status condition (including unconsciousness) for free.
  • The doctor in Merrysville's hospital will charge half the player's current amount of money rounded down. Due to this, if the player is currently holding $1 or $0 he will heal for free. It is unclear if this is an oversight or intentional.
  • Only a doctor is present in Spookane's hospital.

In EarthBound

For some weird reason, a pencil-shaped iron statue is blocking the path.

Hospitals function the same as the previously did. The doctor can now also cure sunstroke as it is a damaging status ailment. Additionally a Healer can be found standing in the lobby of every hospital in the game who will restore feeling to numb characters, cure mushroomization, remove diamondization, and remove a possessed character's ghost for a small fee.
