Rivet City clinic is the local clinic of Rivet City and the working place of Dr. Preston.


Rivet City clinic is located on the north side of Rivet City on the Upper Deck.

Immediately upon entering the clinic, there are two gurneys to the left, and one to the right behind a shade with a wastelander on it. There is a computer in the back, on the wall opposite the door. A locker (requiring a key) is located on the close left corner when entering the clinic.

  • Dr. Preston is not in the clinic a good portion of the time, the clinic is also never locked.
  • With Broken Steel installed, and after you or one of your companions activates the purifier (and places the modified FEV in the purifier) there will be quite a few more patients in the clinic.
