* All three islands used in the three ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'' seasons have had an abandoned clinic, usually small buildings. The location name on the forum is usually some variation of "Abandoned Hospital".

* The remains of the [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} Weapon X]] bunker and the [[Comicbook/AllNewWolverine Facility]] can evoke this, with their partially empty and destroyed labs.

Many older, real life 'abandoned hospitals' in the U.S were properly called sanatoriums, and have probably contributed to the trope imagery. Their abandonment was sometimes related to loss of funding or new prohibitively expensive fixing due to new government regulations. Often the places were created to treat specific diseases at the time that were eventually locally eradicated (TB clinics in particular) without any later re-purposing of the structures. In popular fiction, san'''a'''t'''o'''riums also tend to get mixed up with san'''i'''t'''a'''riums, which can lead to conflation of physical and mental illnesses. As for the mental sanitariums, the enduring image of the ominous, Arkham-esque Gothic building sprawled out on a hill was in large part due to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirkbride_Plan Dr. Thomas Kirkbride]] (1809-1883), who spearheaded a revolution in ethical treatment of mental patients. He insisted that mental institutions should be restful places, with large and rambling rooms and corridors, airy high ceilings and windows, and large outside grounds for the patients to roam and get their exercise (he probably did not insist on Gothic architecture, but that was how most buildings were built back then). Unfortunately, most of the Kirkbride buildings turned out to be much too expensive to maintain and renovate to be compatible with new medical technology, which resulted in a lot of them being abandoned.

* The example appearing on ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' is ''close'' to normal hospital and [[spoiler: becomes one again in the end of the story]]. This is largely because of it being the office of resident BackalleyDoctor, Taiga Hanaya and his [[MoralityPet de facto]] assistant, Nico Saiba. It's not haunted. If it was he would have [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes never]] settled down there.

** Danvers was also the filming location for the thriller ''Film/{{Session 9}}'' (see above for details).
** And was the inspiration for Lovecraft to create Arkham (which, in turn, inspired the asylum of the same name in the Franchise/{{Batman}} franchise).
