Description

You are inside Tarasius General Hospital, one of the city's psychiatric hospitals. The building has been very strongly barricaded. A portable generator has been set up here. It is running. One of the wards has been decorated with a conceptual sculpture.

One of the patient's quartering wings, made clear to accompany many survivors.

History

Named after St. Tarasius of Constantinople, Tarasius General was one of the many psychiatric hospitals throughout Malton seeking to better the mentally afflicted via eclectic treatments, such as shock therapy. In addition, the hospital combined many experimental therapies with religious instruction to provide hospice to the numerous patients within its wards. After witnessing poor results, staff began aiming for palliative care rather than actual recovery. Results were mixed, being both scorned for the lack of focus on treatment but praised for the ease of the patients throughout the duration of their care in Tarasius' wards.

Largely due to public perception of Tarasius' regimen for its patients, funding for the institution began to dry up, and fewer individuals were committed, eventually causing the hospital to close. An inquiry into the hospital following the closure revealed long-outdated methods being used on patients, including unregulated electroshock therapy, powerful hallucinogenics, and frontal lobotomies. Because of these atrocities, just prior to the outbreak, Tarasius was put on the chopping block. Scheduled to be condemned within the year, many individuals in the community looked to the future, desiring to forever rid Spicer Hills from this black mark on the suburb's history. The building itself fell into a state of disrepair, having it's utilities disabled, and the area was cordoned off; it's appearance reflecting the haunted legacy it had.

However, in the wake of the Malton Incident, the facility's demolition has been indefinitely postponed. The doors were reopened by desperate survivors, using it as a make-shift hideout and First Aid station. Despite the lack of utilities, numerous drugs and medical supplies can be found in Tarasius to this day, where, despite unsanitary conditions, survivors still use it's resources to treat the various infected and injured survivors.

Barricade Policy

Maintain VSB at this location. If you need an EHB+ hospital to hide out in, please go to Etheldreda General Hospital (19,8) which is only 2 moves NW.
