Hospital of Wheelchairs History

Krankenhaus von Rollstühlen, the hospital of wheelchairs is a small abandoned hospital in Germany. Functioning more like a care home, the hospital cared for the sick and elderly towards the end of their life.

Set in a wooded area, the peaceful surroundings were an ideal setting to provide the excellent standards of care offered. However, being set across several floors and with a raised entranceway into the first floor, access was always difficult. The hospital was closed by the authorities after a patient in a wheelchair tumbled down the concrete steps, falling to her death.
