The Hestia-class Medical Platform is a class of UNSC space station

Description

The Hestia-class Medical Platform has a large hexagonal main body with umbilicals on each side, typically used for docking hospital ships for unloading patients. In addition, the platform has four large hangers, usually containing dropships, but, in the event that the station is threatened by hostile forces, a fighter squadron may be temporally based in one of the hangers to defend the station. The interior of the main body contains a fully functional hospital complete with emergency rooms, operating rooms, recovery wards, and all the latest in UNSC medical technology. Due to the fact that most of the enemies that the UNSC faces (i.e the Covenant Remnants and later the Necros) have been known to attack hospitals and medical personnel, the platform has 12 M45 Naval Guns and 20 Archer pods to defend against hostile warships and is studded point defense lasers and missile batteries. A heavy-duty tram system runs within the platform for easy transportation of both personnel and cargo.

Hestia-class Medical Platforms are often used to take on the wounded from Asclepius-class Hospital Ships for longer term medical care. These stations have much more comfortable conditions and also have facilities for recovery and rehabilitation and other long term medical care.
