I brought this up on Facebook but I thought I would ask here as well concerning the Federation Hospital Ship (CLH)

A small hospital freighter can support 300 patients.
A large hospital freighter can support 600 patients.

How many can a Federation Hospital Ship support?

Thank you.

Based on the information provided, we can make an assumption that a Federation Hospital Ship (CLH) is larger than both the small and large hospital freighters mentioned. However, without specific details or additional context, it's challenging to determine the exact capacity of a Federation Hospital Ship.

The capacity of a Federation Hospital Ship may vary depending on its design, purpose, and the resources allocated to it. It could potentially support more than 600 patients, surpassing the capacity of a large hospital freighter. However, to determine the precise number of patients a Federation Hospital Ship can support, we would need more information about its specifications or any additional details provided in the context you mentioned.

Probably fewer as it has less internal volume, maybe 150. The primary advantage of the CLH is its speed and ability to get there quickly.

I always pictured the Fed hospital ships as also being specialized for triage and specialist care, given their ability to get places quickly.

Probably some of the best and brightest doctors and staff, who hand off patients for recovery to a hospital freighter, once it can get there. I wouldn't expect much convalescent care on a oCL based hospital ship, as it needs to move to the next crisis.

Thank you.

probably between 150-200 people, from what I found out!

Cross-posted from the other board:


Regarding hospital ships, I don't think you can count the Hull boxes as part of the max-patient capacity.

Consider the Fed CLH Hospital Ship has the same number of Hull boxes as the base Fed Light Cruiser (old) CL, but it does double the number of Lab boxes (12 vs 6). Ergo, I believe that the additional Lab can count as Sick Bay. Or I could be generous and count all the Lab boxes. But I feel that NONE of the Hull boxes should count.

On the other hand, the comparing the F-HS Hospital Freighter vs the next most similar ship, the F-ES Exploration Freighter. Also, compare to the S-AC Small Aux Cruiser. The Small Hospital Ship has double the Hull boxes in the main body of the ship in addition to the Lab boxes. Therefore, I would count all the Lab and HALF of the F-Hull boxes as Sick Bay.

Furthermore, I could argue that the Lab-box Sick Bay is something of an ICU and the Hull-box Sick Bay is more of general recovery ward, perhaps twice the number of patients as the ICU. Running the math, you get 10 per Lab box and 20 per Hull box (counting only half said Hull boxes).

So, the bottom line is: the Fed CLH with its 12 Lab boxes / ICU Ward can support 120 patients.

How's that for Vulcan logic??

It's more fuzzy than that, and no SSD can generate data on patient capacity. The ships are all different. Certainly, more labs mean more doctors and to some extent patient space, but some patients are in hull boxes as hospital ships don't need as many "navy crew" as the base hull as there are fewer weapons and less need for combat damage control.

Again, there is no way to generate patient capacity from an SSD. It's just too complicated.
