Basic Info:

  • 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 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."

Current Status

January 18th, 2012: Currently safe and fully barricaded, Swithrun has an active, but small medical staff. Any supplies that can be brought, please do so, and bring any injured to Harpuia Zero, the current Medic.

Currently Swithun General Hospital is manned by Iota Velous. She will be at the hospital most of the time, but will leave in order to search for much needed supplies such as fuel, ammo and to provide an ambulance service.

14 September 2010: Dark and ruined, along with most other buildings in the suburb, hard to find a place to hole up in, keep on your toes.

6 August 2010: Iota Velous has taken control of the hospital. - Alpha

10 October 2008: Thank god I changed my home base, because this is probably the most active spot in the area. Cades go up and down frequently. I noticed around 2 to 3 hours ago that the barricades were taken down by a couple of zombies outside. Kuji Muji

05 October 2008: The barricades have fallen by a lonely zombie from what I could see. It needs the barricades built up ASAP!! Kuji Muji

08 August 2008:

Under attack....some breakthroughs....10 or more on the streets...there are some PK around Swithun look at Ständige Vertretung Forums. --VarVarna

19 July 2008:

It had been 4 months since i last set foot in Swithun Hospital. I returned to find it in relative working order with many worn out looking people hiding inside. I tended to those i could and searched for supplies. I will stay here and and try to help those i can while i can. However, rumors from those passing through is that a horde is heading this way......--Garth Vargos 22:28, 19 July 2008 (BST)

16 March 2008:

I returned to Swithum hospital today for the first time since its second destruction. I was surprised to see it up and running and with a few survivors inside. I stayed for a few hours, attending to those in need, until zombies brought down the last of our barricades. Fighting them off as best i could until i ran out of ammo, i fell back to Earle Towers. May god have mercy on those i had to leave behind...--Garth Vargos 03:21, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

15 March 2008:

There are a few more survivors now, 5+ or so. There are plenty of FAKs for anyone in need of help. Also the generator is fuelled too. If you need help, now you can come here. --S C 00:05, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

14 March 2008:

The hospital generator is out of fuel, there are no staff besides myself but it is accessible from the street. I am a medic, waiting to help those in need.--S C 15:22, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Tactical Resource Points

The nearest of each type of tactical resource point to Swithun General Hospital:

Safety Standards from the Malton Hospitals Group

  • Try to keep this hospital powered at all times.
  • Keep this hospital at VS+2. Those without Free Running need FAKs too. If the hospital is a key building in a battle, and it's a complete emergency, barricade to EHB. Don't try to say you didn't need FAKs at lvl 1.
  • Keep this hospital zombie-free. They're nothing but trouble.
  • Repair damage when possible.
  • Keep at least one doctor at this hospital.
  • Nobody is low priority. We're all in this together; the level one you save today, could be the one to headshot the zombie chewing on your arm a few months down the road.
  • If you have some people to spare, set up an ambulance service to support survivors outside the hospital.
  • Keep a radio inside the building, and please transmit on the hospital frequency, 28.26 MHz.

History and Significance

Swithun was broken, empty and full of zombies when unknown zombie hunters killed the things then left, fat paul, a medic roving on his own, took the place under his wing and barricaded it so it can be used again.

Fat Paul has since moved on, his whereabouts currently unknown, but his good work continues, with Swithun General being taken under the care of Iota Velous. At present Swithun General is powered, and ready to serve the people of Tapton, with full medical facilities.

Former staff members of the hopsital include StäV members Richard Coxswell, edgestyle and Garth Vargos.
