Looks like your typical general hospital. Also a small water tower, a power plant, and an older building that's suffered significant fire damage.

Candycorn is located in incredibly close proximity to three prison campuses, so expect to see a lot of cops and DOC cars drive by on the main road. Sometimes DOC officers will park at the entrance to the property to have their lunch. It's generally nothing to be worried about, but keep on your toes just in case.

    This place is a veritable labyrinth -- there's so much stuff to see and it's really easy to get lost trying to see it all. Things definitely worth checking out on your trip: operating room suites, the pharmacy, the main lobby, the chapel (it has a confessional booth!), and the x-ray suites.

    Southwood Hospital was built in 1920 as a state hospital, which closed in the 1970s. It was immediately purchased and turned into one of the first cancer research hospitals in the country, and finally ended up as a general hospital under the umbrella of a well-known Catholic healthcare system in Massachusetts before its closure in 2003.
