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."
    • " 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. Arnold's Hospital is a hospital located in the suburb of Gibsonton. The hospital is one of four hospitals located within the suburb. The hospital itself is located on the very northern border alongside Rolt Heights. Survivors seeking medical attention are reminded that the suburb barricade plan requires that St. Arnold's be kept EHB at all times. This allows the hospital staff to provide medical support from within a fortified position, which in turn provides peace of mind to staff members during these troubled (read: zombies eating everyone) times. In the months, and years, following the "Malton Incident" survivors have done their best to make use of the medical resources abandoned by former hospital staff to help in their fight against the zombie hordes.

For those trapped outside and in search of immediate medical attention you are recommended to head directly towards St. Aidan's Hospital, which has a more "open door" policy for non-Free Runners.


St. Arnold's Hospital was built during the great economic boom Malton experienced in the early 80s. The local Gibsonton council, with a grossly bloated budget, were struggling with popular support and were inclined to fulfil campaign promises.

Rushing to ensure the public approves of the council's pro-health expansion strategies, the council put forward proposals for two potential new hospitals in Gibsonton, despite the suburb already containing two hospitals, and having 6 others in the neighbouring suburbs.

When the Mayor of Malton approved both hospital proposals, the council made the horrible realisation that each proposal was contractually binding. To pull out of either hospital would incur a payout of 25% of the total budget to the businesses involved in the tender. At the risk of losing tens of millions regardless of the outcome, the elected officials of Gibsonton found themselves under serious public scrutiny. Citizens, angry at the oversight, protested at the front of the council chambers for months. Eventually, counter-protesters joined in the fray, increasing tensions. There was even a breach that involved a flooding of the chambers with protestors during a town meeting, resulting in several arrests.

Eventually, the decision was made to go forward with construction of both hospitals, ensuring the Gibsonton area would be a haven of health services in the greater Malton area, but the cost was high. Gibsonton almost became bankrupt, and many councillors lost re-election. St. Arnold's Hospital, designed to be the most high-tech medical facility in the country, fell into disrepair, thanks to construction disputes, corruption probes and management issues.

Due to oversaturation of hospitals in the area, St. Arnold's became near derelict by the time the outbreak occurred. Ironically, it became a reliable source of medical supplies after the quarantine, due to the huge stocks of medical surplus on site.


The staff at St. Arnold's Hospital try to always support the following ideals:

  1. To provide medical assistance to anyone and everyone who enters.
  2. To cure the infected.
  3. To provide shelter to Malton's veteran survivors (EHB).

It is asked that survivors please note whether or not there is a portable generator within the hospital, and whether it has fuel or not. As a working portable generator is required for the Surgery skill it is asked the survivors provide support by replacing either the generator when destroyed or refilling its fuel supply when its exhausted. This in turn will allow the medical staff to provide more efficient aid to the injured.
