Series: Sector General
(From the publisher):
It's a massive hospital space station on the Galactic Rim - 384 levels, a staff of thousands - where humans and alien medicne meet.
But Patient Hewlitt, new to Sector General, doesn't want to meet alien medicine - or alien doctors, or, alien nurses, or aliens of any kind. Which is just too bad; he's an interesting case and he'll just have to get used to it.
In the meantime, it's always been an article of faith among Sector General's multispecies staff that infections can't pass from one alien race to another. But in this season of anomalies, it looks like they might have their first-ever interstellar virus on their hands, their tentacles, their cilia...
Combining intrigue, ingenious puzzles (and even more ingenious solutions), action, adventure, and White's characteristic easy charm, Final Diagnosis is a science-fictional treat.
