Sector General is the large space station that serves as one of the, if not the, finest hospitals in the solar system. It is certainly the largest, set in an orbit around Saturn between Titan and Hyperion.
This is a large, growing space station which has dedicated itself to the treatment of the myriad health problems that can occur, focusing most especially on the problems of living off-Earth.
Substantial seed funding and occasional engineering support for Sector General were provided by a SMOF who wants to remain anonymous. There is regular shuttle service between Sector General and Earth, and between Sector General and Mars.
A teaching general hospital, Sector General has a staff of over two thousand medical personnel and a further four thousand support personnel, all of whom live in the facility. There are 1,500 long-term care beds, with a further thousand beds for emergency care.
Since the advent of biomodifications due to handwavium, Sector General has been working with its patients to help mitigate the more extreme 'quirks' that are an inevitability of handwavium exposure.
Sector General's thionite treatment center has begun to see success in curing patients of this addiction.
As a hospital in space, its oncology department is one of the largest in the solar system.
The Research Facility
As a center for medical research, Sector General is pioneering new areas in medical science in many fields, such as oncology, microbiology, and psychiatry. Recently, the work of Doctor Lillian Truong and Doctor June Muller in cryonics has lead to the Truong-Muller Cryonic Preservation and Revival Procedure and the Truong-Muller Cryonics Capsule. With these capsules, it is now possible to preserve patients cryonically until such time as their conditions have a treatment or, in the case of medical emergencies where no facility is close at hand, keep a patient stable until they are able to get help.
- in order to preserve his reputation as a "mercenary bastard" <wink>
- Rumors of a biomodded inscetile empath being on the medical staff are routinely denied. Rumors of a biomodded elephant being on the pathology staff are routinely met with silence...
