Ospedale Specializzato Chieti

Sanatorio di Chieti opened in 1937, Italy seems to have had a bit of a building spree in the 1930's when it comes to sanatoriums. After Tuberculosis was pretty much wiped out, the sanatorium became an Ospedale specialising in lung and heart disorders, the hospital being renamed 'Ospedale Specializzato - San Camillo de Lellis' in the process. The hospital closed in 2007 after 70 years of service. A lot of equipment remains, both inside and outside the building.
