Games involving health and healthcare

There aren't many games focused on medicine, hospitals and the concept of health in general. The few ones developed in the 90s and the 80s were mainly hospital management games or surgeon simulations (Life & Death). Theme Hospital is perhaps the most popular among them. The Alter Ego games, written by a psychologist, involve healthcare to some degree.
