Description

AquaHospital.png
A compact and cubic design accentuates brick lines dividing the 8 story edifice. Etheldreda General is one of the western-most hospitals in Malton, a distinction it shares with two other hospitals. The tan bricked exterior remains intact, maintained by the MTDR

History

Named after the patron saint of old age, the Etheldreda was renowned for its gerontology department and catered almost exclusively to elderly patients from across Malton. The hospital occupies the site of an ancient spring, believed to have been used by Anglo-Saxon white witch Ye Dreadded Ethelle as a source of eternal youth. However, historical records dating back to the Domesday Book found in St Aelred's Church's crypt indicate that Etheldreda did in fact die of a most scurvye and pestylente poxe upon hir womynhoode in the late 9th century. Subsequent scurrilous rumours that this blessed woman contracted this mysterious 'poxe' from St Aelred, patron saint of integrity, can therefore be discounted: Aelred lived and died in the 1100s.

After the outbreak, the enfeebled inhabitants were rapidly zombified and many actually increased in vigour as a result. As with many hospitals, the Etheldreda became a battleground between the forces of life and death, as it had been throughout its existence. Patients with serious injuries are instructed to proceed to Cyril General Hospital.

Staff

MTDR, a pro survivor group, had moved into the hospital and agreed to maintain it, receiving a green-light from the CAPD and Umbrella. A doctor can usually be found on call, and the MTDR are always ready to defend the area. The Umbrella Corporation usually stations Blue Team here or in Frye Alley Police Department. The CAPD coordinate defense strageties with the MTDR, but usually remain at their headquarters at the Crew Avenue Police Dept.
