Generally Hospital is a location which was added to Borderlands with The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. The area is named for the hospital which was built to serve the town of Jakobs Cove. The zone covers an eastern portion of the island and is bordered by the ocean on the entire east side.
The zone is divided into two sections. Once the mission, The Pack is obtained, the second section becomes accessible.
The first section is the hospital and the hill it sits on. The entire hill is a large grave yard that extends all the way up to the gate of the hospital providing a very large number of zombies. On the right is a beach area, at the end off which is Jackie O'Callahan's former residence before he became a wereskag. At the top of the hill the hospital gate is closed, but there is a large hole on the right side of the fence. On the porch of the hospital is a Red Chest.
Generally Hospital was the hospital for the town of Jakobs Cove and the surrounding area. It was built by the Jakobs Corporation to provide medical services to their employees. Dr. Ned was working on an antidote here when the plague first started.
