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."
    • "...one of the city's psychiatric hospitals."
    • "...dark corridors leading through abandoned wards."
    • "...its emergency room in disarray."
    • "...its lobby covered with quarantine posters."
    • "...a children's hospital with bright murals across the walls. "
    • "The main lobby is riddled with bullet holes."
    • "It was one of the last to be evacuated, and seems to have been cleared out in a hurry."
    • "...a derelict hospital that was closed down years ago."

St. Timothy's Hospital

Description

A concrete structure with deep inset windows gives this building somewhat foreboding appearance. Difficult to see into from the outside, this place just feels wrong...

History

Aptly named after St. Timothy, patron saint invoked to ward off internal diseases and maladies, St. Timothy's Hospital is said to have specialized in internal medicine and long term care, on paper anyway. Disturbing rumors began to circulate through Malton about the number of patients admitted, sadly in a state of coma following brain death during surgery, but never released alive. Admitted patients were sometimes seen, but never for very long before notification of their demise was sent. After the zombie apocalypse set in a number of disturbing sights greeted Survivors, seeing the imposing structure as a good place to fortify.

As became apparent upon exploration, St. Timothy's wasn't for long term care per say, instead it was more akin to live storage for donor organs inside their "patients"; being sold on the black market around the world. To minimize "overhead" costs, living human beings were suspended from a complex array of support wires, with pins attached to bones at key points on the bodies. Survivors powering the building up found that these large wards used purplish UV lighting to keep infection to a minimum. Abandoned by the fleeing staff, the decayed dead bodies just hung in grisly silence. More recent organ harvests could be found on mortuary slabs, having had their internals sold to the highest bidder long ago.
