If anyone has information on this location, I would really appreciate the help. As far as I can tell, it is a day care center attached to the old Hotel Dieu hospital. There may be a way in, but I wasn't able to explore it as I was caught pretty quickly. But I have a few photos of the exterior and through the windows. Sorry if the quality isn't the best. I'm hoping to go back and get some better photos soon.

From a reader:

Just wanted to drop a line and update your info on the house that was connected to the old Hotel Dieu. Originally, it was built as a home for the nuns who worked in the Catholic hospital and even had a connecting tunnel that led to the third floor of the hospital. When the hospital and surrounding property were taken over by the Niagara Health Service, the house was turned into a methadone treatment center. Patients with children could leave them downstairs with staff while they were treated so that it why the main floor area looked like a daycare. Thanks!

timekeeper Nice Work LowKey. I have been researching and scouting the vacant hospitals in St Catharines for a while nothing is impossible, these hospitals are tough. Dogs guarding inside the fences, video surveillance, constant patrols. My hat goes off to the first person to crack those hospitals ! Nice work on this place
