Members of the Superhero School community that are injured at school are usually treated in the hospital wing by the school matron. However, some cases are serious enough that the individual must be sent to NYC Hospital for more advanced treatment. Apparently the same is the case with the S.M.S.B, as Sebiscuits' burned and ravaged body was taken here.
It appears that the hospital serves the entire eastern population of America.
Entering the HospitalEdit
To enter the premises, one may step through the large glass doors. The interior looks exactly as a hospital should. The hospital is located at the eastern edge of town because no one could find a better place to house it. Everywhere in New York City was too small, so people purchased a building close to all the others.
There is a strict guidelines of gifts that are allowed into the hospital, for the safety of the patients. As such, each and every one would be searched and inspected thoroughly and would be determined whether it is safe to be given. This is shown when Martha Strout neglected the rule and allowed a cutting of Dark vines, mistook it for a sunflower, into the ward, thus assassinating Fredrick Powell.
Medics at the hospital are known doctors, though mutants call themselves Healers or Medimutants. Their uniform robes are turquoise blue. Requirements to become a Healer include grades of at least grade 4 in the subjects of Alchemy, Herbalism and Defense Against Darkness.
Martha Strout was a Healer around 2041. She was in charge of the Jan Thickley Ward, caring in a motherly fashion for the long-term residents there. However, she neglected the importance of the gift guidelines, thus allowing the Knights of Plague to smuggle in a cleverly disguised Dark vines to assassinate patient Fredrick Powell. Strout was suspended on pay as a result.
