The Clinic in Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town is where you can go if you are not feeling well. There are only two real health issues you can run into in this game: low stamina and high fatigue. If you have both, you are susceptible to passing out and being sent to the Clinic. The Clinic front desk is run by Elli the nurse, and the Doctor is in a side room, giving check-ups and tending to patients.
The layout of the Clinic's second floor suggests that both the Doctor and Elli lives here when they are off shift, unless you marry Elli, in which case she will move in with you. Although her grandmother and brother has a house in town, there are only two beds there, and Elli only visits on Wednesdays.
Surprisingly, even though it is a Clinic, it still acts as a store, and closes during holidays. The Clinic is also closed every Wednesday. It opens from 9AM - 4PM daily.
Elli sells medicine at the Clinic's front desk that restores your health. The XL medicines only show up for sale after you sell a certain amount of herbs.
|Bodigizer XL||1000 G||Appears for sale after you ship 50 Blue Grass|
|Turbojolt XL||2000 G||Appears for sale after you ship 50 Green Grass|
The Doctor gives check-ups for 1 G. Basically, he will tell you approximately what your stamina and fatigue levels are, and either recommend you get some rest, or buy some medicine from Elli.
If you have used up all your strength, and your fatigue level is at the highest point, you will pass out (your skin will turn blue as a warning first, and the music will sound out of tune, so stop working if that happens!).
If you do faint, you will end up in the Clinic, and the Doctor will scold you for not taking good care of your body. You will spend some time in the Clinic room, and return to work a few hours later, or the next day. Avoid passing out if you don't want to lose precious time. Some townspeople also lose affection for you if you overwork yourself.
