Préventorium Pour Enfants de Dolhain

THE ABANDONED HOSPITAL IN BELGIUM

This old art-deco hospital named ‘Préventorium Pour Enfants de Dolhain’ was a tuberculosis preventorium for kids. In the 1970s this Préventorium in the city Dolhain had 150 beds.

Preventorium’s differed slightly from sanatoriums in that they equiped more specifically to patients with an early state of infection. The Dolhain preventorium nestled along the Weser and the railway line Liege-Welkenraedt, knew it’s best days in the 1970’s. Due to advances in medicine, that almost completely eradicated tuberculosis, the domain lost its purpose. The hospital was sold in the 1990s to a German company that planned lofts in the building. Now, many years later, the plans still haven’t been carried out.

Outside the hospital is an old fire truck. The German-made Magirus-Deutz with a 30 meter ladder was used years ago by the local fire brigade. These photos of ‘Préventorium Pour Enfants de Dolhain’ were taken in 2009 and 2013.
