The Project Hospital is an ad-hoc clearinghouse for projects with problems that prevent them from being completed. These can include (but are not limited to) damaged, duplicate or missing pages, missing or poor illustrations, lacking copyright clearance, duplicate projects, and poorly prepared projects (huge page or illustration scans as proofing images).

The Project Hospital is currently outside the main DP workflow, though it is intended that the process become more formalized in the future. The current "patients" are listed on the Project Hospital page.

The Project Hospital page enables better tracking of projects that need to be fixed, to prevent them from being left in broken states indefinitely if the person who found the problem forgets about it.
