History

Glamis Private Hospital opened in 1988, to cater for the rising elderly population in Dunedin. It closed during the autumn of 2011, after $18 million was invested in the Yvette Williams Retirement Village (named after the former Olympic gold medallist) located in nearby Highgate. Investment in a new premises was said to be due to the increasing demand for bed space. All of the former staff and residents at Glamis were moved across to the new site, which was described as a ‘boutique retirement village with improved facilities’. All residents would, for instance, have access to an en-suite bathroom at the facility. While Ryman, the current owners of Glamis, intended to sell the site once it was vacant, it still remains empty in 2016.

Our Version of Events

Back in the barely habited scrubland of the South Island of New Zealand – better known as Dunedin – I decided to follow up a tip off that an abandoned hospital had popped up. Deciding to walk was a bad idea, since it turned out to be miles out of my way, but I still arrived with some daylight to spare. After standing around looking suspicious for a while, waiting for a suitable gap in the pedestrian traffic, I managed to get inside fairly easily. It’s a funny thing that, normally Dunedin is like a ghost town, but when I decide to explore hundreds of people suddenly appear!

Inside there seemed to be plenty of leftover stuff, so I set about grabbing as many snaps as possible before it got too dark. To my disappointment, there were no beds in any of the former bedrooms, although there were other medical-related objects – namely chairs, walking sticks and pills – spread around the building. Overall, the place felt as though it had been abandoned only a few months ago, not four years or so. There were still plenty of food supplies leftover for instance; baked beans and what not – so that was my dinner sorted anyway. I had to pass on the bread unfortunately…

Amazing. Great pictures. hard to believe it's been abandoned for so long. It's so clean. I wonder why they took the beds out, but left so much else.
Thanks Jim :thumb Based on all my other experiences, beds are usually one of the first things to be removed. They likely used them in the new site I guess.

Hi, I came across this place recently while researching haunted places in Dunedin. I have done a quick explore and plan on going back asap ( super easy to get in) sadly it has been vandalized with lots of tagging, smashed windows and doors , blood everywhere and even pentagrams drawn all over. There is a large leak in the kitchen which has destroyed the ceiling and rotting the floors etc. So sad to see it's been left to fall apart when there's many things it could of been used for. I'll take a heap of photos next visit and share them here.

Hello. Good to hear more people are out exploring in Dunedin. I struggled to find many other people while I was there. Sorry to hear the place has been trashed. It's inevitable, unfortunately. I agree, the place could have been put to better use. Looking forward to seeing your photos of the place!
