Need a The Hospital walkthrough for The Last of Us 1, including all collectibles? In this The Last of Us 1 guide, we're going to show you how to achieve 100% completion in The Hospital, which is part of The Firefly Lab chapter.
There are 4x Artefacts, 1x Firefly Pendant, and 1x Shiv Door to find in The Hospital, as Joel seeks to save Ellie.
The Last of Us 1: The Hospital Walkthrough
You've made it out of the Underground Tunnel and learned what the Fireflies are going to do to Ellie. Fortunately, they're not going to keep you prisoner for long. Deal with the guards who are looking for you and push up the corridor. This entire area is filled with guards, and they're heavily armed. You may want to consider approaching stealthily then, and weaving in and out of the various different rooms crouched to slip by your captors.
Weapon: Assault Rifle
Some of the Fireflies are carrying a new Weapon that's going to come in handy to help you get to Ellie: an Assault Rifle. Either get a stealth kill to loot one, or just take out one of the aggressors and grab it from their corpse.
Fight or sneak your way forward to the West Wing, and then beyond the reception to the Stairwell B. Go up a couple of floors, and through the door into a new part of the hospital.
Artefact #1: Marlene's Recorder 1
Immediately in the room on the right, where you come out of the staircase, you'll find an Artefact named Marlene's Recorder 1 on the desk. Remember to root this room for supplies.
Artefact #2: Surgeon's Recorder
Opposite the door where you found the previous Artefact, on the counter, there's another named Surgeon's Recorder.
Shiv Door #1
Just behind the counter where you found the previous Artefact, there's a Shiv Door. Open it up and loot all of the supplies inside, including the Supplements. Opening this door will unlock the Master of Unlocking Trophy.
Firefly Pendant #1: Stewart-Seume's Firefly Pendant
On the other side of the Shiv Door you just opened, on top of the desk immediately to the right, there's a Firefly Pendant named Stewart-Seume's Firefly Pendant. Collecting this will unlock the Look for the Light Trophy.
Artefact #3: Marlene's Journal
Now move forward into the surgery area, and on your right is a large FEDRA quarantine tent. Inside this, on the right, you'll find an Artefact named Marlene's Journal on the table.
Before moving on, it's a good idea to craft up some Health Kits and ready your weapons. Exit the tent where you found the Artefact, and push deeper into the surgery area. There are a lot of armed guards in here, so we'd recommend you stealth your way around, but you should now have the resources to go loud if you prefer that approach. Press forward, dealing with anyone who gets in your way, until you reach the end of the corridor, then go through the door where it's marked 'Pediatrics' on the wall. Joel will barricade it shut.
Artefact #4: Marlene's Recorder 2
Immediately after barricading the door shut, go through the door on the right, and on the table at the far end of the room is an Artefact named Marlene's Recorder 2.
Keep moving up the corridor towards the door marked with the Firefly symbol and go through. It's time to save Ellie once and for all.
Now you've got Ellie, follow the red alarm lights, avoiding the guards, and run to the elevator at the end of the corridor. Get inside and watch the cutscene, before the Epilogue.
