"The very first requirement in a hospital is that it should do the sick no harm." - Florence Nightingale

Hospitals are very important places. People go to hospitals when they are sick or injured in order to get treatment. You can learn how to draw a hospital with the aid of this easy drawing guide.

Hospitals have a long history. The first known hospitals were founded thousands of years ago. Some were temples where people sought remedies from the gods.

Others served as schools for teaching doctors, and refuges for the poor and for travelers. In fact, the word "hospital" has the same root as "host" and "hospitality" - meaning kindness extended to strangers.

Who works at a hospital? Doctors and nurses are present day and night. There are also pharmacists, nurse's assistants, cafeteria workers to prepare food, janitorial staff, and other medical specialists. Some people even volunteer to visit patients and cheer them up.

You can make this cartoon hospital a part of your city skyline, along with other important buildings such as schools and museums.
