South Street Hospital

Discovered by Dave Summer
Created Jan 31 2013
Recent status Being Demolished
Category Hospital
City London, Ontario
Location # 6245

After 138 years of hospital service at this site, the existing buildings will be demolished in 2013. The original 56 bed 2 story London General Hospital opened in 1875. Buildings have come and gone over the years. The current main building "The North Wing" opened in 1941. The most recent addition was built in 1967. It sounds like the Colborne building (1904) may be saved. The fate of the buildings on the north side of South St. is uncertain.

f1rstdegreeburns: A couple of summers ago I had the dream job. I got to work at what remains of an abandoned hospital overnight. I had special access (and permission) to all areas, and took loads of photos, that people deserve to see...

Most of this old hospital has been torn down, but the old Children's wing, Health Sciences Lab, Admin Building and Daycare Centre remain. That is where I worked.

Recently the site has been condemned by the city (because of Asbestos), and has heavy security, and London Police on site.

The site is now closed.

JA9IN I love this place so much. I had psychotherapy here when I was younger in one of the brown buildings. Even when I was little I took an interest in the beauty of the building, peeking into the older gym (inside the building) which I found was very spooky and intriguing!! I would give anything to see inside these buildings in person. So beautiful and such a shame what's happening with the property :(

Iwaslookingformycat This location still has a lot of abandoned property standing. However it is guarded 24/7. The main focus of security is the oldest building closest to the river. Its a heritage property so the developer has to fix it up so that it can become the museum. Right beside that will be high end condo's with the rest of the property becoming loft and one bedroom apartments. Be careful.

mattgrant1 There's a 100 foot long excavator at the back of the building - it's pretty cool. But if any of you are able to make it on - get to the top of the building and look out to the right side of the building. It's something out of a horror flick - the top three floors on the back side are all gone.
