Summary (From the publisher):

A vast hospital complex floating in space, built to cater for the medical emergencies of the galaxy. There are patients with eight legs - and none; stricken aliens that breathe methane or feed on radiation; an abandoned baby that weighs half a ton. And there are doctors and nurses to match, with a bewildering array of tentacles, and mental powers stretching all the way to telepathy.

Faced by the illnesses and accidents of the universe, fired by the challange of galactic medicine, O'Mara, the hospitla chief, and his crack team, including the altogether human Coway, with his insatiable curiosity, and Prilicla, the brilliant and fragile insect telepath, batlle to preserve life in all its myriad forms.

HOSPITAL STATION - the astonishingly inventive saga of a vast high-tech community, a cross between an emergency clinic and a zoo.
