The HH2 hospital dates back to the 1950s. Over the years the hospital expanded substantially; even adding a complete new wing. At a certain point, it became one of the biggest hospitals in the region with its own maternity, paediatrics departement and helicopter pad. The hospital only recently became abandoned and will be reconverted soon.
Abandoned elderly home located in the green outskirts of one of Belgium’s largest cities. This geriatric facility was built in the 1970s and could accommodate more than 170 patients. When its infrastructure became outdated, the home was abandoned and is nowadays awaiting reconversion into a residential function.
This abandoned hospital was built in the 1960s. After the last patient was transferred to a more modern facility a couple of years ago, the hospital has become the subject of a political battle between preservationists and their opponents who want to tear it down to construct a new project.
The psychiatric hospital was built in 1849 and named hospital ‘Meer en Berg’. In 1918 the hospital was renamed: ‘Provinciaal Ziekenhuis Santepoort’. Since then the hospital grew and became an institute housing 1500 patients. In 2002 the last patient left.
The construction works for this military hospital together with the military arsenal started in 1898, but it wasn’t until 1911 when the hospital officially opened. The site consists of many hospital blocks, a surgery, a chapel and a monastery. The hospital got abandoned in 1993 and will be reconverted into lofts.
