I See You

This 17-hectare hospital site features nine buildings including a three-storey main hospital, maternity ward, maintenance and laundry. It was closed in 2006 when it was forecast $20 million of upgrades would be required over the next two decades to meet minimum legal and operational requirements. New hospital facilities constructed nextdoor have encountered their own issues, with $845,000 in earthquake strengthening completed in 2019 with more to come following.

An interesting entry to this main building revealed the fate of the Community Health Services library, unrealised architectural plans, a post-apocalyptic maintenance space adorned with menacing messages left by prior intruders – one of whom urged us to DIE – and altogether TMI about infectious skin diseases. This is part three of a three-part video series. Part OnePart Two.
