Built in the 1930s, this sprawling property spans over 100 wooded acres.





The majestic face of this hospital was a beacon of hope to the ill and injured for many years.






Sadly, it did not escape the fate that several hospitals built around the same time succumbed to.
Deemed seismically unfit, it was slated for closure a few years ago.







When the last of the patients had been moved it was one woman's task to make the closing announcement over the hospital's intercom.
She had been born there 30 years prior.
She made her announcement, turned out the lights and the old hospital sighed after 80 years of service.











The county took possession of the property and is now desperate to unload the sizeable chunk of land that costs over a half million a year to maintain in it's current condition.
(Running electricity, gushing water pipes and security probably the biggest factors in that figure).

The graveyard next door, overgrown and choked with poison oak, has graves dated back from the mid 1800s to the early 60s

Thank you for the backstory and old photographs I'm a fan.
The tree room is my favorite.

WOW!! That place is absolutely awesome and huge! I would love to go there and explore it with a couple of friends of mine. Really like the photos too, along with the history of the building. Posts like these are always so interesting and cool.

My bro and my friend and I recently made a night trip to this location and it was awesome. The active electricity and flickering lighting made things feel much more eerie; There was also an alarm that was going off the entire time we were there. One or two other people were at the facility while we were exploring, we never came into contact with them but we heard them on the second floor. They actually stayed in the same area the entire time... maybe they're scrappers looting some copper or something?

I feel fortunate being able to see this place before it got any more vandalized than it currently is. There is already quite a bit of graffiti.

All of these were taken on my old crappy iphone









This is a video of the alarm going off



Overall I had a great experience spending some quality time with my brother I plan to return in the future.

It's a really strange feeling to be in a blown-out location with full working electricity and water. Such a waste…

My recommendation?






We also heard the chirps of various alarms. Other signs of life included a squatter in the cafeteria and a patrolling rent-a-cop who couldn't have looked less motivated to keep the place secure.

Here's a bunch of other shots I snapped. I haven't shot in months and the set came out pretty lackluster, but I figured I'd share anyway.

8. This wall was pretty cool. It was full of people's goodbye messages to the closing hospital. It was a really visceral connection back to the energy and life of the space.

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

Nope! Totally different, they're about three hours apart, and the other one was a mental hospital.
