How to get Springfield General Hospital

To get the Springfield General Hospital you must first understand that they are all locked by quest and you need to complete everything in order to unlock Springfield General Hospital and make it available for purchase.

The last quest that needs to be completed in your game to unlock Springfield General Hospital is completing a series of quests that sends Homer, Wiggum, Comic Book Guy to Dr. Hibbert. Prior to that there will be a number of quests about sending people (mostly the larger men) to dine at Krusty Burger and Gilded Truffle.

You will then send the people that have dined too much into Hibbert Family Practice where he will preform his duties then will tell you about him charging more in a Hospital and will tell you to build the Springfield General Hospital



  • Tilkjo

    I’ve completed level 24, have one of the furbies and santas little helper, but the hospital still hasn’t unlocked- do I need the other two furbies?

    • Akutus

      You need to complete main story just like kent brocman and like that. Do the guests and it will be opened.

    • phil

      The hospital quest has nothing to do with the Christmas quests, therefore getting another Funzo won’t help you.

      The Hospital quest comes up once Krusty has created and promoted a new Burger. Homer, Chief Wiggum and Comic Book Guy will then eat at Krusty Burger and after that have to go for a Checkup at Dr. Hibbert’s Family Practice (this is a Dr. Hibbert quest, so make sure he’s free of tasks once Homer, Comic Book Guy and Chief Wiggum have completed their tasks).

      After the checkups Dr. Hibbert will ask you to build the hospital.

      • Jayme

        When does Krusty create a new burger?

        • Anne Gal

          I have been having the same issues. I am all but finished level 24 but the quest to build the hospital just hasn’t happened.

            Did you get the hospital? As I’m at level 26 and tasked to build burns mansion I have done that and the takes for Smithers but it is now telling me to build the Wiggum house, I have had all my characters doing nothing to see if that prompts tasks it doesn’t, can someone please help me!

            I have get that too but i still dont have the quest to build the hispital idk why but did i miss somebody that makes the quest hospital not valid can u guys state the that related to the quest

        • phil

          This quest happens after Dr. Hibbert and I think two other characters (sorry, can’t remember that quest exactly) dine at the Truffle.

          To best make sure if you missed a quest have all your characters be without quests at one point during the day. You should easily be able to spot the exclamation mark bubble thingy above the characters that have upcoming quests.

    • Andrea

      Have you managed to get the hospital yet? I had the same problem as you, then I noticed in the buildings section there was a krusty burger twice available to buy, one really cheaper than the other. I bought it to fill the space is left for the hospital. Anyways when I bought that, it started off the krusty task of promoting a new product which led to getting the hospital in the end!

      that’s what EA said, yes. It’ll probably be a smaller, in-game update though that will remove the christmas theme and not a major one with new buildings or characters. Knowing EA though it could very well be a week after January 3rd for the update to be released.

    I’ve had a few quests asking people to go for check ups with Hibbert and then completed Barneys Bowling alley and the quests involving him.

    But now for 3 days I have no character quests whatsoever – the only quest right now is to have enough coins for try n save and to decorate houses.

    I have don’t everything known to man to try to get prompted to build Springfield General Hospital. I was asked to send people to Hibbert Family Practice a couple times but then it just stopped the sequence. That was over two weeks ago. What is the freakin’ deal? I love this game but I’m getting pretty sick of the glitches. Now, it’s just sending me on random jobs and I’m getting nowhere in the game. I hope there is an update soon!

    • Chris

      that is exactly what is happening to me i still cant get the hospital and now im stuck

            You need to have the orange house, the doc has a quest there. Finish a couple more (dining at the trifle, etc) and krusty will promote his product, with inch will lead the doc to build hospital. Took my 2 months to figure it out. Have fun!

    The weirdest thing just happened, Burns Manor got unlocked so I could build it, but the General Hospital, which is before Burns Manor, is still unlocked. How could that be even possible? Anyone else with the same issue?

    • Laura

      That happened to me too. I’ve got burns manor and am building the wiggum house right now but it still hasn’t told me to build the hospital. I’ve been told to send people to dr Hibbert and to have him deal organs on the black market but nothing else

    • Jennifer

      Yes! This happened to me two days ago. The next mission should be for Burns to hide nuclear waste, but it’s not coming up! Tried giving him a few other tasks to fix the glitch, but no luck. Anyone have any tips?

    I have built everything, and I do mean everything, up to leave 28, and always do tasks as they appear. But the hospital just isn’t opening up for me. I think there may be some bug in the system here that has yet to be fixed.

    • Bownyboy

      Read my comment at the bottom of this page it may help ;)

  • Bownyboy

    The hospital will open eventually just be patient. I’m nearly level 30 and I’ve only just started the series of jobs that unlocks the hospital build. Once you have Skinner’s mums house built keep on with her jobs as often as possible, especially the crossword job and soon you will unlock a series of jobs which see Skinner hide from her in Bart’s tree house and willy’s shack. Once you get these open your on the fast track to get the hospital build so keep going and do all the yellow tagged jobs until you start sending loads of people to see the doctor and then your almost there and the hospital will become available after the last patient has been seen.

  • Bownyboy

    Ok it seems the main problem everyone has currently is building the Springfield hospital so I’m gonna share what I know and I hope it helps some of you. First of all, forget what level you are and what you have built already! Just because your level is high enough to unlock a certain building, it doesn’t mean you can build it straight away and it doesn’t mean they are built in the order they unlock.
    So you understand I myself am almost level 30 and I built the Mr Burns manor many levels ago but only now am I doing the list of jobs which run up to me being able to build the hospital. Now I can’t talk for everyone who plays so this is just my own personal findings from playing the game daily.
    My game plan consists of two main things which I have always done. The first thing I do is always do the 4 hour jobs on every character all day long but if they don’t have a 4 hour job I do 2 or 8 hour jobs. The only time I don’t do a 4 hour job on a character is if they have a quest job that needs to be done which shows up in yellow writing at the top of there job list.
    Always do these jobs when they appear as they are valuable quests and lead to new building being unlocked and available to be built.
    Now as I said I am almost level 30 now and I am probably half way through the list of jobs which should allow me to build the hospital. If your struggling to get the ball rolling I’m not sure there is any definitive way that promises to get it started but if you make sure you have the items needed such as the orange house and krusty burger and most of all Skinners house! Having Skinners house and his mum in the game are very important as these are what helped me start the hospital jobs.
    Keep doing the crossword job for Skinners mum and eventually you will open loads of quest jobs where Skinner hides in Bart’s tree house and willy’s shack as well at the church and Buddhist temple. Once those start there will be others such as Apu in the market and Bart skipping school and being caught and Skinners mum cleaning up Springfield then finally you will start sending everyone to see the doctor and finally at long last it will tell you to build the hospital and you will get the final building done. Remember I’m level 29 and only just doing this so don’t fret if your not on it yet you may just need to do a certain job for one of the characters to get it started. Hope this helps but if anyone is struggling with this or anything else your welcome to email me at [email protected] and ill help with anything you need.
    You can add me if you like my name is Bownyboy as its written here.

    Thankyou for excellent advice! I needed to buy back the orange house and Guilded Truffle to fulfill the events that unlocked the hospital! You also need Krusty Burger and the Hibbert medical practise.
