Carson General Hospital is a hospital featured in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories located in Rockford, Staunton Island, Liberty City, serving as the only hospital on Staunton Island. It is where the player spawns to after getting killed in the premises of Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale (only if Shoreside Vale is not unlocked).
The hospital was established in 1973, with the sign for the hospital saying "Because Health is Liberty". The hospital is located close to Liberty City Community College in Liberty Campus and Liberty City Memorial Stadium in Aspatria, also known as Bush Stadium. Two Health Icons are located at the hospital as well as an Ambulance.
Different vehicles can be found in the car park in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. In GTA III, these include a Moonbeam, Bobcat, Rumpo, sometimes a Kuruma (instead of Moonbeam) and a Stallion. A hidden package is also located at the hospital in Grand Theft Auto III.
The hospital also appears in Grand Theft Auto Advance. However, it is wrongly located further North where Phil's Army Surplus is located in GTA III, while in the original location of the hospital has a 5 to 10 supermarket.
