TYPE OF WOUNDED PLACE
TYPE OF STORY
Story & Experience
This hospital sits idle in my town and as a result, the medical care is also idle. We have a small clinic now, but this is a rural area in Nevada and resources are limited.
My pet and I walked around the vacant building and I thought of the happy and sad memories a hospital holds.
I researched why the hospital fell into disrepair and there are several reasons. Of course, finances are a primary point but it’s concerning that people lose out on care when money calls the shots.
Why this Place?
I chose this abandoned hospital after I read how it went by the wayside. It’s more than just a building to me.

There is now a small clinic in our town and I appreciate how they’ve brought back care to our community. I sent them an anonymous card saying thank you for their service and daily help.
I’m grateful this medical clinic is open and how they’re improving my town.
