Centre Hospitalier Psychiatrique

THE ABANDONED HOSPITAL IN BELGIUM


‘Centre Hospitalier Psychiatrique’ is an abandoned hospital in the south of Belgium.

In 1860, this hospital was build by the local government. It used to house women with mental health conditions. In 1866 when the hospital was completed, it housed 170 patients. Later a small farm added to the site. Patients could work here as part of the therapy. Also new wings and a nursing school was built.

In the early 2000s the first buildings were demolished to make place for a brand new hospital. Some wings are protected and are waiting for a new use. I visited the ‘Centre Hospitalier Psychiatrique’ in 2013.
