3. View of self or state of being; in need of healing (feeling miserable). ... New American Dream Dictionary
The healing may be physical, psychological, emotional or spiritual. By paying attention to this dream you may be able to identify the source of your pain, and where and how the healing needs to take place. Think about why you or someone else was in the hospital in the dream. You may ask yourself, “What is going on in the dream? What is the prognosis, and what is the cure?” Answering these questions in light of a situation or issue from your daily life could be very helpful and, at times, enlightening. Therefore, try not to get upset by your dream, but rather pay attention to its message. Superstition based dream interpretations suggest that if you are visiting a patient you will be receiving surprising news (good or bad), but if you are the patient, you may be currently overwhelmed by life and should ask others for help.

1- Depending on our attitude to hospitals, when one appears in a dream it can cither represent a place of safety, or a place where ones very being is threatened and we become vulnerable. Taken as a place of healing, it represents that aspect within ourselves that knows when respite is necessary from cares and troubles when we can allow ourselves to be cared for and nurtured and put back into one piece.
If we find hospitals threatening, it may be that we are conscious of the fact that we have to ‘let go’, to put ourselves at the mercy of others and allow things to happen for us, in order that a situation can be improved.
2- Dreaming of being in a hospital may be mentally creating a transition period between something that has not gone well, and an improved attitude where things can get better. ‘I’o be visiting someone in hospital indicates that we are aware that a part of ourselves is perhaps not well, is ‘dis-cased’ and needs attending to in order to give us clarity.

The discomfort that colors most people’s associations tends to overshadow the benevolence connected to them as places of healing.
A common reaction around hospitals is to fear them, adding a touch of irony to our relationship with the healing process. Healing is transformation, and the first step to any major change is the breakdown that precedes the breakthrough. Since the breakdown is the scary part, we avoid it, just as some people avoid hospitals in waking life.
It is easy to forget that in order for surgeons to heal a patient, they must first cut the person’s body open, creating a wound. And since not everyone who checks into a hospital is fortunate enough to check out, these places are indelibly connected to the fear of death and dying. However, remember that death is always followed by rebirth. In this way, being in or near a hospital in a dream is always going to indicate that some healing is either underway or necessary.
If you are the patient, then consider that your sense of self is undergoing a significant shift.
If you are a visitor, then the healing transformation is connected to a character aspect or particular way of being as embodied by the person you are going to see.
If you are playing the part of healer, the dream may be helping you step into that role in some area of life that is undergoing a transformation.
The fear or repulsion that is present in the dream will give you an idea of how much resistance you may be unconsciously engaged in.
