This hospital in rural mid-east Georgia was built in 1968 and abandoned in the first half of 2001 due to excessive debt (at one point they were over $1 million in debt), mismanagement, lack of insurance, and cuts to Medicaid. All of the equipment, medication, and patient records are still in the building after 20 years.
I visited in December 2021 and took most of these pictures with a Canon Rebel T6 DSLR.
The only picture I took of the outside of the building. All of the windows were boarded up except for one on the side of the building facing the woods.
The window I entered through. This was one of the only parts of the building that I didn't have to use my flashlight in.
Hallway picture using flash. Some halls had spray painted arrows that I appreciated since the building was a maze and every hallway looked identical.
Desk with old computer and fax machine. Someone had fun dumping iodine everywhere.
Hallway with mattresses and mold.
This room was disgusting. The ceiling tiles had all fallen and it was pouring rain so the floor was very soggy. Water dripped from the ceiling constantly. However, the rain provided good noise cover and probably made it harder to see our flashlights through cracks in the boarded up windows.
Lots of medication left behind. I also found twenty year old blood and urine samples. It smelled pretty bad even through my mask. nanakwaks

There was a room full of x-rays. This was one of the coolest.
Overall, really cool place to visit. I have more pictures that I can upload to flickr if anyone is interested :^)
