A hospital census is a print-out listing all the patients in a hospital, their diagnosis, and their room number. In Census, each player takes control of a developing hospital. Working with limited finances, the players must decide which types of beds to buy, and in what quantities. Equipment and doctors also need to be acquired in order to help treat more patients. The goal is to create a hospital that accommodates as many patients as possible, while leaving your waiting room as empty as possible!
