Mons, 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 00’s the first buildings were demolished to make place for a brand new hospital. Some wings are protected and are waiting for a new use.
