"The former Abbott Hospital buildings housed a long-term and transitional care facility called the Ebenezer Caroline Center from 1980 to 1992, which in the 1990s became the City of Lakes Transitional Care Center, closing in 2004. Since the departure of City of Lakes, the hospital buildings have been vacant."

this residential area of Springfield, Ohio used to be boarded up. My friends and I poked around one day taking pictures...i hope they don't mind their backs are in a couple of these! Everything in the photos is gone now, and in it's place is a new hospital.
the porch says 90% love...
St. Joseph's Hospital in Peterborough Ontario was closed several years ago and has sat empty since. Parts are to be demolished soon. Here are some pix I took on July 1, Canada Day.
