Why wouldn't "The hospital's doctors are very serious" work here? Thanks!

-ki most normally would form a relative clause :) If you are talking about the doctors that work at a specific hospital, it would be "hastanenin doktorları." This can be any group of doctors at any given hospital. They all could work at various hospitals but have just gathered at one :)

Is 'the hospital doctors' acceptable? If not, what would this be in Turkish?

That would be "hastane doktorları" although the phrase "hospital doctor" sounds a little off to me.

You'd have to assign the possession to the object. The Hospital's doctors.
