This imposing building, which in my opinion looks like a high rise hotel in hell, is still active as of this writing. If you look at the ends of either wing you can see the sharp contrast between the original hospital and the more recent addition of the stairwells to bring it up to modern fire codes. Maybe one day I will have the opportunity to photograph the interior here also - abandoned or not, the architecture is very unique and impressive.
