St. Simon's Hospital
Before the quarantine, St Simon's Hospital was a children's orthopedic hospital, and offered free medical care to families in need. The interior is still decorated with bright murals and the hallways are lined with drawings from the pupils of Brabner Row School.
In the summer of 2009, Malton College of Medicine came to Eastonwood and began renovating the hospital for use as its new campus and base of operations in Eastonwood. MCM rearranged the hospital's floor plan to meet the demands of a zombie apocalypse; the ground floor was used for admissions, the emergency ward was converted into a dormitory for students and survivors, and the Dean and staff set up their offices on the fifth floor in the administrative wing. A hot tub was set up on the roof, accessible only by the staircase to the decommissioned helipad.
When MCM arrived at St Simon's in the summer of 2009, the hospital was ruined. There were traces of previous occupation, scraps of old graffiti, but they were cleaned away along with the bloodstains. Anyone who remembers stories from the early years of the infestation should feel free to supply them here.
After two happy years of service to the Eastonwood area, Malton College of Medicine packed its bags and went on tour of Malton in early March of 2011. After months of helping out numerous suburbs of Malton, MCM reestablished its campus headquarters at St. George's Hospital in Greentown.
MCM historically proposed a barricade policy for Eastonwood, which can be found here along with the !zanbah plan, which is somewhat different.

After two weeks during which MCM comfortably held St Simon's at VSB while 20 zombies gathered outside, on the night of Friday 20 November, there was a very sudden increase to >50. A simultaneous attack by perhaps 15 of those zombies took place that night, almost all of whom were members of The Dead Walker, a group strongly suspected of zerging. Violet Begonia, Dean of MCM, states MCM's position in this respect under 'Recent News' on the Eastonwood page. --Sherry talk MCM 12:47, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
MCM is on a mission elsewhere just at the moment, but is keeping an eye on the hospital in its absence. MOB has just passed through Eastonwood, but MCM has begun to rebuild, and St Simon's has been reclaimed and repaired. MCM will continue to service the revive point at the cemetery one block north of the hospital [33,20]. --Sherry talk MCM 14:07, 24 October 2009 (BST)
The hospital has recently come under attack, presumably by zombies, and has been ruined. Template:Roz Barton 12:00, 3 October 2010 (BST)
