Research unlocks new equipment and items for your hospital. This Two Point Hospital Research Guide will explain the basics of the research feature as well as some tips on setting up a base of research operations for all your hospitals to come.
After you progress through the first few levels you will eventually unlock the ability to build a Research Lab. From this point forward you can hire Researchers to Research new and valuable technology for your hospital. Research is shared across all hospitals so you can pick up and drop research whenever you feel like it. However, some of it takes a while so it’s a good idea to get it out the way.

When you first setup your initial Research Lab, do your best to increase the room to level 5. Do this by placing multiple Research Stations, Gold Certificates etc. This speeds up the process and aids your researchers. It’s a good idea to set up multiple research labs in your first hospital. This allows you to research all the rooms you will need in later levels, without the time pressure placed if you wait.
Once you have both rooms setup, select each one individually and change the extra staff option to maximum, which is 4. Then you need to either hire or train 8 doctors, 4 for each research room, in research. Check out our Training Guide for more information. Once you have your research team ready, research the new Research trait. This will allow your team to learn Research II, Research III and so forth. This greatly expedites the whole research process.
To further improve it, click an employee and click the job option on the lower right.
This will bring up one of Two Point Hospitals greatest features. From here you can assign employees to certain tasks, or forbid them from working in certain areas. From here you want to ensure your Research team ONLY works in research. Employ other people to fill gaps, let your researchers do their thing.
This will allow you to research quickly and efficiently, without having to build a lot of research stations later in the game. If you have any questions about out Two Point Hospital Research Guide, post a comment below.
