* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_Dale_Hospital Glenn Dale Hospital]] in Maryland was not a place that people visited to get better. As a sanitarium for tuberculosis, anyone who wound up here could only hope to die in the most dignified way possible. And yes, there is a children's compound. Features include the incinerator, refridgerated morgues, the flooded underground hallways, and the elevator shaft that "breathed". The sad thing is that it really was a beautiful place in its prime, and probably could be again if any restoration were put into it. Budget shortfalls and copious amounts of lead paint make this unlikely, however.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Brother_Island,_East_River North Brother Island]], right in the middle of East River. Opened in 1885 as the new location of the Riverside Hospital, itself founded in the 1850s to treat smallpox and being expanded to other quarentinable diseases. In 1904, the steamship ''General Slocum'' ran aground and burned, resulting in the death of over 1,000 immigrants. It was also the hosptial that held and released Typhoid Mary, then confined her until her death in 1938, then closed. It opened after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII to house veterans attending local colleges, then switched to treating teenage drug addicts, which, at the time, was usually the 'hardcore' method of locking the addict in a room for a week, many of whom, as [[RoomFullOfCrazy one wrote on the wall]], felt they were held against their will. It was closed in the '60s after rampant corruption and recidivism, and has since been turned into a bird anctuary for the Black-crowned Night Heron, though all the birds left in 2011 for reasons unknown. Fortunately, though, aside from an episode of ''Series/LifeAfterPeople'' and [[http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2012/09/04/a_30photo_tour_of_the_abandoned_north_brother_island.php a photographer given special permission]], the entire island is closed to the public and patrolled by NYPD (although partly because of its proximity to Riker's Island Correctional Facility).

* ''Series/AshVsEvilDead'': Baal kidnaps Ash and takes him to an abandoned mental hospital to [[spoiler:brainwash him and]] lure his friends there so he can destroy the Necronomicon they're carrying. Lampshaded by Kelly when she sarcastically comments that the place looks "totally not scary at all".

* In AlienIsolation, the San Cristobal Medical Faculty is where the game truly picks up, as it's the first time the alien begins actively hunting Amanda. [[spoilers: It's also where the woman who had the first chest burster in her come out, causing the events of the game to happen.]]
* In UntilDawn, the Blackwood Pines Sanitarium, a former mental hospital which has been abandoned for decades, is clearly no longer in service, [[spoiler: although the wendigo's call it home.]]

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linda_Vista_Community_Hospital Linda Vista Community Hospital]] Run down for years, abandoned in 1901, this is THE go to location for Hollywood when they need a creepy hospital or asylum. The owners do a large scale haunted house on property around Halloween, in addition to renting it out as a filming location. Not all of its spookiness is fictional either, it is rumored to be haunted, and the surrounding neighborhood is (as of 2012) a rundown high crime area. And they're going to make it into apartments.

* ''Franchise/SilentHill'' features not one, but two of these hospitals, with Alchemilla Hospital in the first game and Brookhaven in the second and third. They're notable for being the rare locations that are just as scary in the 'real world' as in the dark Otherworld. The fourth game involves a bizarre abstraction of a hospital seen through the lens of a terrified child.

* ''Webcomics/StandStillStaySilent'':
** Many small impromptu monster ridden infirmaries have been encountered during the exploration of the silent world, including one emergency ward full of corpses and a letter from the nursing and medical staff for the former patients saying they are just going to get supplies and will return...written ninety years ago.
** The information gathering raid in Odense leads to a hospital that was once the last Danish hold out against the disease that ended the world and left it infested with monsters. As well as the usual creepy decay, barbed wire and "keep out of this room" signs also heavily feature.

* ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters 2'' had a multiplayer map in some kind of Hospital/Chapel hybrid. Naturally, the default bot set was made of zombies.
