Le sanatorium d’Angicourt

THE ABANDONED SANATORIUM IN FRANCE


The ‘Sanatorium d’Angicourt’ is an abandoned sanatorium in Angicourt, a village North of the France capital Paris.

The sanatorium in better times

This first sanatorium ‘Pavilion A’ was built in 1899 by architect M. Belouet. It was a big, imposing building. In 1924, a second building ‘Pavilion B’ is built next to the first one. It housed 164 patients. Not much later building A is renamed Pavilion Villemin. Pavilion B became Pavilion Varenne.

Before the First World War, the site was a sanatorium for men. During the First World War, the sick and the nursing staff were evacuated, and the sanatorium served as a military hospital to the various armies. The latest ones were the Americans. After the war the hospital is a tuberculosis sanatorium again, but now it functions as a woman’s sanatorium.

Housing for medical staff is built in 1931. General services are located in several buildings. They include dining halls, a kitchen, a laundry, the administration, the director office, stables and a morgue.

In August 1965 the sanatorium is transformed into a house for the elderly. In 1997 the buildings are abandoned. I visited ‘Sanatorium d’Angicourt’ in 2015.
