I suggest hiring a consultant.
Or at least following some courses about database design and read some books about the subject.

Is this a personal project or professional? ie for college/uni

What will you be managing?

Depending on the scale it could mean a consultant.

In that case I would recommand to learn more about ER (Entity Relationship) modelling and about normalizing databases.

Good guess on my part since its extremely unlikely that it'd be a professional question like that.

Assuming you already know the basics of database design from you uni course, I'd start with looking at the people entities (patients, doctors, nurses etc) and their records then build from there. As you will already know, an employee can become a patient so I would suggest a single table (or group of tables) for people/persons and go from there. At least thats how I would do it.

As it is a uni task I'd suggest other comments simply point you in the right direction rather than giving you a direct answer since you will learn more and everybody will have slightly different approaches. You will gain more by doing it yourself and your teacher will learn more from your approach

Aren't you meant to be doing this?

There are multi-billion-dollar companies (Cerner, for example) whose sole purpose is to create hospital management systems that cost hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. It sounds like you're biting off a big chunk to start your database design experience. I'd recommend that you scale back a bit (or a lot!) to learn the concepts and then work from there. Otherwise you're starting on a multi-year task with plenty of opportunities to get lost in all the details. If this truly is a university project that was assigned to you, I have to wonder what it is they're trying to teach you, especially someone who (evidently) hasn't been exposed to database design theory.
