Basic Info:

  • Excellent place to find first aid kits. Zombies frequently check inside.
  • Portable Generators have a use other than powering the lights and increasing search probability in hospitals. Players with the Surgery Skill can heal for 15 HP if the Hospital has a fueled up Generator.
  • Hospitals can be barricaded normally.
  • Among the internal descriptions found in Hospitals:
    • "...its wards and corridors blackened with the soot of a recent fire"
    • "...its empty wards criss-crossed with snapped quarantine tape."

History

The Methodius General Hospital was built in 1889, and is named after Saint Methodius who was a Byzantine Greek scholar, archbishop of Great Moravia, and the main translator of the Bible into Old Church Slavonic using the Glagolitic alphabet created by his brother and collaborator Saint Cyril.

The hospital is built from large yellow-stone, and the photo here shows the rear of the building. At the front entrance there is a fountain which is quite unusual in having a centerpiece of figurines dancing around a crocodile. Sadly, the fountain has become quite weathered and smoke blackened in recent years.

Before the outbreak, the building suffered an electrical fault which caused a major fire. Although no one was killed, the fire burnt out most of the rooms, and unfortunately the majority of the damage wasn't repaired before the initial outbreak.
