Zombie Hospital_psychorooms – Germany

Zombie Hospital_psychorooms – Germany
(2016)
——————————————————————–

The Kinderkrankenhaus’ story begins in March 1908, when it was decided to build Prussia’s first municipal children’s hospital to help combat rising infant mortality rates at the time.
Construction got underway in June 1909, overseen by the prominent architect Carl James Bühring. He built a load of stuff in Berlin and then later in Leipzig.
On July 8, 1911, the hospital was inaugurated amid great fanfare on what was then-called Kniprodeallee. It had a little park for therapeutic purposes and – best of all – milk production facilities, with a cowshed, dairy and everything needed for milk storage and transportation.
Not only was the hospital considered one of the best of its kind anywhere, but it hosted the Third International Congress for the Study and Prevention of Infant Mortality from September 9-15 that same year.
Of course, more buildings were added down the years, as can be discerned from their varying and contrasting styles, but the cows’ facilities were done away with in 1920. Well, they catered instead to the city.
Later, in 1965, they became part of a dairy farm in nearby Heinersdorf. I presume they weren’t using the same cows or the milk must have been fairly sour.
The hospital was again expanded with a new wing in October 1987, but the whole thing was cruelly shut down after 85½ years of service to Berlin’s newest arrivals on January 1, 1997.
It’s been lying idle ever since, punished repeatedly by weather and brainless zombies who insist on burning it. Bruised, battered and burnt, it pines for the days it used to welcome brand new little people into the world and care for bigger little people who suffered misfortunes.
But no, its lifeblood is denied and now the property speculator zombies are circling. It’s the hospital that ran out of patients.

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.
