Before the Storm

"Being in a hospital this long sucks. I bet when I see Rachel and see that she's okay, I'll feel better."Chloe's monologue in "Hell Is Empty"

The Hospital is a explorable location in Episode 3 of Life is Strange: Before the Storm.

Episode Three - "Hell Is Empty"

After Rachel Amber is stabbed by Damon Merrick at the junkyard, Chloe Price rushes her to the hospital, where two nurses quickly take her to surgery. As Chloe worriedly paces around the waiting room, James and Rose Amber reach the hospital and rush to Rachel's room; later on, James returns to Chloe and asks her what happened, to which Chloe recounts the events at the junkyard. Afterwards, Chloe has the opportunity to visit Mikey North, Drew North, and Steph Gingrich's room and play one last tabletop game; chat with Mikey and Drew's father, Anthony North; speak with Rose; and witness the couple from Overlook Park searching for the maternity wing.

Upon entering room 781, Chloe finds James comforting Rachel before leaving the two girls to talk. Still determined to meet her birth mother, Rachel convinces Chloe to break into James' office in order to gather more information on her. While leaving the room, Chloe comes across Eliot Hampden, who expresses worry over Rachel being a negative influence on Chloe. Afterwards, Chloe notices James comforting Rose in the waiting room before exiting the hospital via elevator.

After confronting Damon and finding Sera at the old sawmill, Chloe returns to the hospital to find Rachel being comforted by her parents. After James and Rose leave, Rachel asks Chloe whether she succeeded in finding information on her birth mother.

Tell Rachel everything
Chloe tells Rachel about James' plan to drive Sera away with Damon's help, causing Rachel to become shocked and enraged. As James and Rose reenter the room, Rachel glares at her father with resentment and tears in her eyes.

Protect Rachel from the truth
As Chloe begins to cry, she lies to Rachel that she failed in finding Sera, to which Rachel expresses hope that they could find her someday. Chloe reassures Rachel that her mother loves her unconditionally; when Rachel asks her how she knows, Chloe replies, "Why should she be any different from the rest of us?"

Optional Graffiti

The first optional graffiti is located on the bulletin board facing the hospital elevators. There, Chloe can tag a poster reminding patients and visitors to wash their hands.

The second optional graffiti is located at the vending machine. After slamming the machine and retrieving a loose candy bar, Chloe can graffiti the machine's opening.

The third and final optional graffiti is in room 785, where Chloe has the option to sign either Drew or Mikey's cast.
