The hospital on the San Hieroynmo Peninsula was a facility where specialized personnel and equipment provided multiple health care services for sick or wounded soldiers on the peninsula.


It was a small hospital with minimal facilities located in the mountains. The buildings are at least two stories high, and besides the main offices, the medical facilities, and the various storage areas, there are also various buildings to the North, East, and West of the main hospital area.


San Hieronymo Incident

Main article: San Hieronymo Incident

After Roy Campbell fell ill with malaria, a soldier in Big Boss's resistance provided information on the hospital's location, having once been a former member of a squad that patrolled in that area.[1] He also revealed that the hospital had recently received an unusually large shipment of supplies, especially in comparison to the size of the facility. After infiltrating the facility to search for antimalarial drugs, Big Boss discovered that most of these supplies had been transferred to a research lab to the north, from a shipment log in the hospital director's office.

Sometime later, a spy unit deployed in the area uncovered evidence of Claymore mines being placed at the hospital by soldiers under Gene's command. Big Boss's resistance then attempted to defuse the Claymores before any of the hospital staff (who were left unaware) ended up severely wounded or killed.
