Sanatorium Paul Spillmann

THE ABANDONED HOSPITAL IN FRANCE


‘Sanatorium Paul Spillmann’ is an abandoned health center in Lay-Saint-Christophe, France.

This sanatorium was built for professor Paul Spillmann by french architects Genay and Weissemburger. Works were started in October 1900 and was completed in July 1902. A few years later, the property was enlarged, facilitated by a donation from a generous benefactor. With the new hospital they could take care of male and female patients, with in total 50 beds. After the death of founder Dr. Paul Spillmann in 1914, the sanatorium was named after him.

1924

During the First World War, the sanatorium was very damaged. The works to restore the buildings took several years. The sanatorium was not only restored, but also enlarged so it could house 130 beds. On January 15, 1924, the work were finally completed, the Sanatorium was able to open its doors and resume its activities, which continued even during the difficult years of the Second World War. Since the beginning of March 2006, the services were being transferred to a bigger hospital. I visited the building in 2013.
