I forgot the name of it but I'm on the location where you first gain access to the Marketing room. One of the requirements to get 3 stars is to raise the hospital value to $5M. When I got to the point where the other two requirements were checked off, my value was at about $2.5M. I have purchased all the plots and I have more or less used every single space I can to put more rooms. When you hover over the $5M value requirement it says that to raise hospital value, earn more money, expand your hospital and increase profits. Since this is the last thing I need to do to get 3 stars, I've been 100% focusing on increasing the value. I first tried increasing the attractiveness by placing gold star awards EVERYWHERE I could. Then I tried focusing on hiring only 4- and 5-star staff, but this made no difference and seemed to make things worse. By this point I was hovering around $3.5M value. Then I thought I would try and hire 0-star staff to train them up to 5-star but again, no discernible difference. Then I thought to try making every office level 5 but again, no big difference. I tried playing with the pricing, making it -20% and -30%, and then up to +20% but that didn't seem to change anything major. During all of this I am also constantly running research projects and LARGE marketing campaigns. It's hard to tell what has the most effect because the value indicator doesn't change instantly, it's more of a month-to-month change.
I am currently around $4.1M value so I'm almost there but I'm out of ideas. I need to drastically improve profits but I can't really expand the hospital anymore, maybe 2 or 3 more rooms. Has anybody figured out the fastest way to raise hospital value?
