Designated Entry Point
Barbara General Hospital [23,38] occupies a lovely old building of warm, honey-colored stonework. It is an entry point into the southeast quadrant of East Becktown.
The hospital is heavily used and maintained by the East Becktown Defenders.
There are six hospitals in this suburb. The others are:
- Edward General Hospital [22, 39]
- St Eleutherius's Hospital [24, 34]
- St Ethelbert's Hospital [27, 33]
- St Elisabeth's Hospital [27, 36]
- James General Hospital [28, 31]
According to the East Becktown Barricade Plan, which is in compliance with the Uniform Barricading Policy of Malton, Barbara General Hospital must never be more than Very Strongly Barricaded (VSB+2). This
hospital is one of six medical facilities in the suburb, therefore it must be kept accessible to shelter survivors at all times, with or without Free Running. The only exception is when the building is under siege
from five or more undead, in which case it can be Extremely Heavily Barricaded (EHB). When the danger has passed, the barricades should be torn back down to VSB so everyone can enter again.
For fast help, use the revive point at Davies Avenue [24, 35]. Originally, this revive point was maintained by the Malton Forensics Unit branch of the Department of Emergency Management.
These days  it is patrolled by the East Becktown Defenders.
Please see the East Becktown Building Information Center.
Interesting places in the area include the Loney Row Police Department [24, 39] and the Jensen Boulevard Police Department [21,40] in Lukinswood.
There are two NecroTech buildings: The Daubeney Building [26,35] and the Attwell Building [20,36].
Barbara General Hospital's earliest incarnation dates back to the Industrial Revolution, when it was erected by noted coprolalaia sufferer Winston Barbara as a private convalescent home for his long-suffering and unfortunately-named wife Barbara, whose frail mental state did not stand up well to her husband's condition. Though she, and several other Victorian socialites of similar nervous disposition, were treated by a small, sullen, and eerily mute caste of Eastern mystics, the paper-thin walls of the hospital still rang out daily and nightly with wails of "Please be quiet!" - evidently, the women's long lives of enduring aural unpleasantries had left too indelible a mark. Untouched by artillery, mischief or the blitz throughout both World Wars, the staff at the ever-growing facility sill had to endure long periods of air-raid sirens, the explosions of shells and the collapsing of nearby buildings, all whilst just trying to get a bit of peace and quiet. And when Churchill was buried, by God, the noise from all those radios! Some people just have no decency. Even that nurse who went insane and killed seventeen newborn babies did it quietly. For shame. During the early stages of the outbreak, Barbara's chief of staff decided to seal up the hospital's doors and windows after forcibly "evacuating" the remaining patients, believing that at long last his peace had arrived. However, it was only shortly afterwards that people, all these noisy God damn people, started arriving, with the clankety generators and bang-bang-bang guns and all the incessant talking. There's just no quiet around here any more.
