Clinique Maternité

THE ABANDONED HOSPITAL IN FRANCE


The ‘Clinique Maternité’ in Avesnes-sur-Helpe is an abandoned maternity clinic. It is situated 14 km from the Belgian border along the river Helpe Majeure, a tributary of the Sambre

This hospital was abandoned many years ago. This building was part of a bigger hospital site, but most of the other hospital buildings are reconverted into apartments or demolished. The maternity clinic was built on the lower side of the city along the river Helpe. Because the risk of a flooding it is not allowed to reconvert the old hospital to apartments. But the protected status of the building doesn’t allow demolition. As a result the windows are bricked and the building is awaiting an unsure future. These photos of ‘Clinique Maternité’ were taken in 2011.
