PMB Sanitorium – Old St Annes Hospital

Old St Annes courtyardHospitals were certainly well built with interesting architectural merit. With the assistance of the local “caretaker” I managed to gain access to this old derelict hospital in Loop Street. It’s a bit like a time warp in that this hospital opened by Bishop JolivetĀ  in 1898, and staffed by Augustinian Nuns , closed many years ago and has been boarded up. I understand that Arts & Culture may have plans for it but they need to hurry as the buildings, including the chapel are in serious decline. It would be great to see this Municipal owned property resurrected.
