Our first trip to this hospital was unforgettable, imagine stepping foot in a building, if the occupants just up and left, and didn't pack anything up. That was the experience we had. The following two years were devastating to hospital, which suffered endless vandalism and several large fires.
My biggest regret is not taking better photos of the hospital on my first trip, the whole time I imagined being able to return for years to this completely unknown at the time, treasure of abandoned hospitals.
We did our best to keep the information we saw about this place off of public forums. Despite our best efforts it became a heavily trafficked location because of a particular Livejournal forum that felt that every bit of information about urbex locations should be free for anyone to see. Which unfortunately for everyone ended in the wrong people visiting the hospital and using it as a place to let out their teenage angst and aggression. Along with the physical destruction of everything inside the hospital, every flat surface was spray painted with swastikas.
