This location has been labeled as Demolished, and therefore can be viewed by anyone.
This is a 4 story children's hospital, one of the parking lots is being used as a city impound lot. There was a fire in one of the wings on the main floor, the rest of the place has the ceiling tiles collapsed with lots of wires and things hanging down.

There are also several related buildings including a set of apartments, as well as a hostel (I have not had a chance to explore these buildings).

    The most interesting part of this hospital was that all of the staff wrote messages on the walls in their departments saying how much they'd miss the place, and reflecting on the good times they had there.

    There is also a left over x-ray lab with all the equipment still there, pretty interesting as well.

    This had been the Children's Hospital in St. John's for about 30 years or so. It was moved to be part of a health complex next to the university.

    This used to be the Fort Pepperell US Military Hospital, but was converted in 1966 to become the new Children's Hospital.

     Future Plans
    This place is currently for sale, although the government has announced plans to revamp the entire area which may end up having this place torn down and rebuilt as condos.
