ARTICLE: LEGO Health Care in Tabletown
Posted 12 November 2009 - 09:35 PM
This topic has got me thinking about my building future - I'm currently working on a suburban scene, maybe I can expand it with a small private clinic and shopping center?

The doctors and nurses in LEGO City must have a hard situation. So many patients to take care of and no acceptable hospital...
But I think there is another terrifying side of this problem. Where has those doctors and nurses got their educations? By the looks of it none in LEGO City has ever studied in any school and therefore I seriously doubt the knowledge of those quacks.

I think that might be the hospital "gym". My local hospital, err Holy Cross, has a gym in the physical fitness center with dumbells, elipticals, you get the idea.
Great, another thing that is missing from TLG's meager hospitals.

Let's not forget other emergency medical vehicles. I refer to the 6356 Med-Star Rescue Plane. An impressive set for its day in my opinion and one of my favorites.
Finally, there is the related topic of private minifig health care that I wish to highlight - Drs. Blocknamara and Toy and their plastic surgery practice.

Aw, come on, that baseplate isn't that baa.... wait a sec. Yeah it is. The only set that base plate has been used in that I actually like is the IJ set it appeared in.
In conclusion, a newer, better more modern hospital is needed very badly.

You have covered it well, and I agreed that we are able to see a decent hospital in the near future. Sadly, I don't own any of these mentioned sets even though I will love to own the 6387 Classic Town hospital. Hopefully, LEGO will take healthcare into much consideration.
Below is the upcoming sneak preview, happening over in Classic-Town.net in the next few hours, and I hope you will like it.

However now that I made the mistake of giving away ALL my lego when I was 13 or so and having to spend a few grand to get back to where I was, there's a bit of a problem brewing. Anyone think there might be a need for a minifig graveyard if theres no new hospital soon?

I do think that we have enough regular police and fire people around nowadays, which cannot be said with hospital people.
Therefore, the next time TLC will come up with a hospital set, it must be really good.
Not something on a newly created baseplate (that is about i don't know how much bricks high) with a few bricks on it pretending
to be a hospital... it has to make sence. Right?

Lego Cities across the world are facing a huge deficit due to governments excessive spending on city services like fire and police (it seems like every other citizen in town is a fire fighter or police officer). For too long the health care system has suffered with city infrastructures lacking sufficient services like hospitals and schools. Though their have been some supplemental emergency services like 7903 Rescue Helicopter and 2064 Air Ambulance, I agree with TheBrickster that the primary and emergency care services are not keeping pace with the growth of ever expanding Table Town communities..
In 2009, I propose a new comprehensive medical center that will meet the growing demands of café corner and classic town styled communities world wide. The new hospital would be CC style in design but with classic town architectural features like helicopter pad and ambulance emergency parking retaining the classic red and white color design. The new medical center would include a primary care ward, a maternity ward, and surgery center with outpatient care faculties and plenty of hospital rooms for the growing table town communities. Below is a preliminary design for a 2010 Medical Facility under construction now. I’ll post pictures of the final version in December for contribution to this topic.
Great article TheBrickster!
