Top 10 Scary Abandoned Hospitals


Hello and welcome back to the Most Amazing
channel on the internet. I am your host, Rebecca Felgate, and today
we are talking about the Top 10 Scary Abandoned Hospitals. You guys seem to love our scary lists! At our most recent Fan meet up we met so many
awesome people, and loads of you came and told us about how you were all about the scary
lists! We’re listening, and today we are getting
the clinical kind of spooky! I have to say as well, a lot of these places
were former psychiatric units, which somehow makes them even scarier; are the spirits of
the criminally insane still stalking these abandoned buildings? You decide! Before we delve into the video, though, I
just want to ask you guys what the scariest situation you have ever been in? I’ll tell you to mind at the end of the
video! Also please leave a thumbs up if you like
our content! Shall we start this list off with a Nazi Asylum? At number 10, we have an Abandoned Hospital
that Hitler stayed in? Check out Beelitz Heilstatten Hospital in
Berlin Located 30 kilometers outside Berlin, the
huge hospital has been used as a place to treat tuberculosis as well as transforming
into a military hospital in world wars one and two. In 1916, Adolf Hitler was admitted to the
hospital after being wounded in the battle of the Somme. Later, in World War Two it was exclusively
used to treat Nazis. A lot of nasty people have been nursed back
to health here, which is pretty concerning if you think about it and means it is not
a place I would want to spend the night. They say that walls absorb history…well..
there is some pretty intense history absorbed in these walls. The hospital is VAST too… like…seriously
huge. While it is abandoned, it has been used as
a film set on a couple of occasions. For example, It was used in the 2012 movie,
the Pianist. 9 – Denbigh Asylum
Denbigh Asylum is a former psychiatric institution in North Wales. Over 1,500 patients were lobotomized on the
grounds between 1848 and 1995. Not only that, Welsh MP George Maitland Lloyd
took his life in the asylum in 1949. Urban explorer and filmmaker Lee Rielly shot
an incredible piece of footage on a DJI Phantom 4 Drone flying over the old abandoned building. It is kind of hauntingly beautiful. Lee also ventured inside and took some photos
of the crumbling building. Talking about his Urban exploration, Lee said
“the buildings just sit there letting nature take over. It’s sad in some ways but I feel proud to
be one of the few people to see the places in their current state.” 8 – Britain’s Largest Lunatic Asylum
Hellingly Hospital has been abandoned for 18 years. Sitting in the Sussex countryside near the
village of Hellingly, the building has fallen into disrepair. The main hall has a theatre like a vibe, with
spooky high ceilings. Some of the old equipment is still in the
building too, like this patient chair, for example. I can imagine someone laying in that chair
while a doctor prodded and poked at them with utensils. The fact that that chair can still be found
in the building is pretty chilling. 7 – This next hospital is also in Berlin and
is rumored to be haunted by Zombies. Whaaat? Also, this hospital was a children’s hospital
which makes things even creepier. The facility was called Kinderkrankenhaus,
which to the English tongue makes it seem even scarier! These days, the building in the woods has
been battered by the elements and ransacked by vandals. Urban legend in the nearby town is that the
old abandoned hospital is home to a number of zombies waiting to strike. Those who dare visit the location have taken
some terrifying pictures if the interior and exterior. On the flip side, though, some of the graffiti
is pretty cool. 6 – Kings Park Psychiatric Hospital – NYC
Kings Park is on Long Island and it opened in the late 1800s. At the time it opened its doors as an asylum,
it was the largest state-funded mental institute. The facility came complete with railroads
to bring in supplies. The facility expanded and eventually suffered
from overcrowding in the 1950s. By the mid-90s it had run out of money and
was closed down. While people can explore portions of the grounds,
the buildings are kept away from the public eye. That hasn’t stopped urban explorers gaining
a glimpse, though…and I have to say, it looks terrifying. Like most scary abandoned hospitals, it is
surrounded by woodland… I can just imagine the patients running through
the trees trying to escape. Youtube channel Vocativ made a whole video
about the place that you should check out. Also…here are a few pictures from the inside…Look
at those paintings on the wall too. I am not talking the graffiti…. The kind of absurdist ones at the back, like
what on earth is going on there? Another New York Asylum up next, we have the
Willard Asylum for the Chronically insane at number 5
This is one of the creepiest places on earth. Operating from 1800 until 1995, rumors circulated
that once people were admitted here, they would never be leaving. The average stay of a patient was 30 years,
which….is actually longer than most life sentences…so that is pretty intense. It is also said that people who died in the
asylum were buried in nameless graves in the hospital grounds. As the hospital was closing down in 1995,
an employee found 400 old suitcases stowed away in the loft, clearly packed away as if
the person was never going to leave. The cases contained personal items and letters
from family members, which is really sad if you think about how the patients weren’t
allowed to keep them. Some contained old photographs, which are
really haunting to look at when you know that these people were admitted to the hospital
and never allowed to leave. Several murders took place in this hospital…we
have the Gaebler Children’s Centre at Metropolitan State Hospital in Waltham, Massachusetts at
number 4. The children’s center was not a nice place
to be. In a book written by Dinah William’s on
the topic of Abandoned Insane Asylums, she reveals how the center was once amid a scandal
of accidental poisoning. On top of that, the location has garnered
the nickname of the hospital of seven teeth due to a nasty murder in the 1970s. A patient named Anna Marie Davee was pounced
upon and murdered by a fellow patient, a deranged man named Melvin Wilson. When Police finally investigated him, they
found he had chopped up her body and hidden it in three separate graves. It seems that Wilson kept three of her teeth
as a souvenir. The hospital closed in 1992. While some parts of it have been demolished,
some scary abandoned buildings still remain, concealing their dark history. Sooo what is scary than a creepy abandoned
hospital? A creepily abandoned mortuary – basically
a hospital for the dead at number 3 This is disgusting! Memorial Mound in Kentucky was left abandoned
for 18 years with corpses left to rot inside! Caskets were disintegrating and bodies left
in blue plastic bags. Weirdly, coffins were elevated off the finding
and left to decompose. Embalming liquids still remain in their tubs
too…which is weird! Some of the interior walls and fabrics appear
to be molding, too. The site closed down in the year 2000 and
was left abandoned since. The building, bodies and all, was rediscovered
in 2014 and is now on sale. Who on earth would want to buy this building? It is horrifying and more than likely totally
haunted! What is worse than a creepy abandoned dead
person hospital…. A creepy abandoned Mental Asylum riddled with
ghosts…. Give number 2 your best smile… it is the
Sai Ying Pun Psychiatry Hospital in Hong Kong. This hospital was the sole asylum in Hong
Kong Between 1947 and 1961. The building was later abandoned in the 70s,
however, it seems a number of ghostly spirits were left behind. Supernatural spirit hunters have reported
mysterious footsteps and sounds of a woman wailing…worst of all, though, some people
who have been unlucky enough to be in the building at night have reported visions of
an evil man bursting into flames, while others report seeing decapitated ghouls staling the
halls at night. The scariest and haunted hospital in the world
has also been the spot of many murders and suicides… at number 1 we have Kingseat Psychiatric
Hospital in New Zealand Opened in 1932 and shut down in 1999, the
Kingseat Hospital was not a nice place to be when it was opened and is seemingly even
worse now it is closed. The maximum security psychiatric unit was
very very intense…and you can still see the bars that were placed on the windows as
well as scratch marks in the walls from where patients were clawing to get out. Local legend has it that more nurses died
at the facility than patients. Since the hospital’s closure in the 90s, several
death cases have been reopened and investigated as manslaughter or murder amid repeated claims
of abuse, with some saying staff beat several patients to death and simply let others starve
to death. There have been over 100 ghost sightings in
the building, which has been the subject of several paranormal investigations over the
years. Many believe the hospital is haunted by a
grey nurse… others report seeing a number of shadows. A family that lives nearby has even claimed
that the ghosts play with their children. Creepy. Okay, so that was the top 10 scary abandoned
hospitals – which do you think is the scariest? I told you I would tell you my scariest story
earlier, didn’t I! Well, I have never been to a scary abandoned
hospital, but I have been to a haunted house! Okay, before
