This hospital was explored in the middle part of an absolutely crazy no sleep long weekender. One of my most vivid of the large number of extremely fuzzy memories from that weekend is sitting in a blues bar after this explore and physically having to prop myself up against a wall to stop myself from falling asleep.

Anyway this was one of those wonderful little surprise locations that I never expected I'd be able to see. Given that me and my friend had chosen to come to this area by total chance, finding that it had a large derelict hospital nearby made it almost too good to be true. Formerly a military hospital, it closed it's doors way back in 1979 and has sat vacant ever since, but partly maintained by a caretaker-type person. It's stayed wonderfully undamaged through the years thanks to not many people knowing about it, and the fact there is a very much operational museum situated in the grounds right next door. Sadly I saw a couple of photos from here pop up on Instagram the other day showing areas had been graffitied since my visit, including the mortuary, which sucks but it's not really a surprise. As a side note, this location is the furthest away from home I have ever travelled for an explore.

On the subject of the mortuary, it was small and pretty unremarkable with the dinkiest little wooden doored body fridge I've ever seen, but the steel table had a very unusual head restraint apparatus still in situ which I have never seen anywhere else.

The hospital was largely stripped of everything except the dentists suite, operating room lights and mortuary but it was the pure unmolested decay here, as well as the multitude of hand-painted and stencilled signs that really drew my eyes.

























































Thanks for looking :)​

Thanks all, this really was a special place. It's sat in limbo for decades as a new interstate extension pretty much cut it off from access to the nearest major city, which was rather unfortunate.
