Ocean View Hospital is a hospital in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, located in Ocean Beach, Vice City, just south of the South Bridge that connects Vice City Beach and the Mainland. The hospital is run by the Vice City Health Department.
Distinguished by its relatively lavish classic architecture and its prime location fronting the Vice City bay, the hospital effectively serves as a respawn point for the player after they die within the vicinity of Ocean Beach or neighboring Washington Beach. As expected, the hospital has an Ambulance and a health icon.
The hospital is known to employ Doctor Abner Horowitz.
The Ocean View Medical Foundation
The Ocean View Medical Foundation is apparently a medical branch of the Ocean View Hospital operating from a pair of (then) ultramodern twin towers that exists in both GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories just south beside the Ocean View Hospital and across from the Marina Sands Hotel. The functions of the foundation is unknown, although it may be used to manage medical training or funding. While the building is inaccessible to the player, the compound of the twin towers do contain the following pickups in GTA Vice City:
- One rampage: On top of a grassy platform on the right side of the first building.
- One hidden package: Behind the first building.
