Königin-Elisabeth-Hospital – Germany

Königin-Elisabeth-Hospital – Berlin – Germany
(2016)
———————————-

Queen Elisabeth of Prussia, originally from Bavaria until she married her way out of Munich. Her hospital was established on April 14, 1843, while she was still queen on account of her husband, Friedrich Wilhelm IV. The “Small-Sick-Children-Preservation-Institution,” as it was called, was based in Mitte at the time and didn’t move to the site we’re concerned with at Oberschöneweide until 1910. It moved to Kreuzberg before that, getting the slightly more palatable name of Elisabeth Children’s Hospital in 1844.
Once it moved to the 130-bed facility at Oberschöneweide (Karlshorster Straße at the time, now Treskowallee), a department for internal medicine and surgery for adults was created and it was renamed the Königin-Elisabeth-Hospital (Queen Elisabeth Hospital) to reflect the new all-inclusive approach to patients.
An epidemic of scarlet fever in 1913 caused severe overcrowding and it was decided after that to reduce the hospital’s less busy kids’ department. hen the First World War broke out and a lot of its doctors and deaconesses were sent off to the fronts to look after patients at the source of their problems. A military hospital with 150 beds was set up alongside the 100-bed civil hospital in Oberschöneweide to cope with patients returned back from the front. If only they’d put the front at the back and met in the middle perhaps they could have avoided all the fighting. I suppose it’s too late to tell them now…
Things weren’t all that much better after the war, what with the depression and hyperinflation and all that. It was 1924 before the hospital could really get going again.
Just when things seemed to be looking up, however, Germany caught Naziitus. It seemed innocuous at first; no one believed the warnings, most were more concerned about preserving their own hides.

(info from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whittingham_Hospital )

Whittingham Hospital was a psychiatric hospital in the parish of Whittingham, near Preston, Lancashire, England. The hospital opened in 1873 as the Fourth Lancashire County Asylum and grew to be the largest mental hospital in Britain, and pioneered the use of electroencephalograms (EEGs). During its time it had its own church, farms, railway, telephone exchange, post office, reservoirs, gas works, brewery, orchestra, brass band, ballroom and butchers.[1] It closed in 1995.

The hospital officially opened on 1 April 1873, although 115 patients had already been admitted in the previous year, some of whom helped with the building work.[6] The large complex (to be known as St. Luke’s Division from 1958) was completed in June 1875, and had an initial capacity of 1100 inmates and included an Anglican church, a Catholic chapel, a recreation hall and a large farm estate.[7]In 1878 a new annexe (known as St. John’s Division from 1958) was built on 68 acres of land to the north of the site. The annexe was completed in 1880 and could accommodate 700 patients and, by the special agreement of the Postmaster General, the hospital’s own dedicated Post Office.[8] The hospital contributed £15,500 towards Fulwood Urban District Council’s scheme to extract water from Beacon Fell, in exchange for 90,000 gallons of water per day to be supplied, free of charge, to the hospital. This was achieved under the Fulwood and Whittingham Water Act of 1882.[9] In 1884, a sanatorium was established in the grounds for patients with infectious diseases.[8]In 1892 works began for the grounds to be illuminated by electric lamps; these works were completed in 1894. In 1900 an annexe called Cameron House was opened to the northwest of the main building, joined in 1912 by a third annexe, later to become known as St Margaret’s division in 1958. By 1915 the number of inmates was recorded as 2,820 – more than double the asylum’s original capacity.[8]
