This building, part of a former Georgia State Hospital campus, had some of the most beautiful diffused light I have ever seen.
This small closet contains patient records and x-rays for this Georgia State Hospital. Many years after this building became abandoned, the records still remain and are collecting dust.
Sadly much of the morgue at this state hospital had been destroyed, but the morgue drawers and doors still remain.
This medical building, part of a once active and very busy Georgia State Hospital, opened in 1929 and operated for fifty years before shutting down in 1979.
The decay that devoured this nurses station in a Georgia State Hospital was fairly extensive compared to other sections of the building. The collapsed roof in the top right corner gives me an indication that there is a water leak just above this station, causing the wood to swell and buckle.

Construction on this building. the only hospital in the county, was completed just before 1930 and remained in operation for nearly 50 years. It contained a clinical lab, x-ray department and morgue.
The Jones building at Central State Hospital in Georgia was constructed between 1928-1929 and was designed as a medical and surgical hospital complete with clinical lab, x-ray department and morgue. During the time, it was the only hospital in this county.
Sadly, the Jones Building closed in 1979 and has sat vacant since.
Construction began on this building at a Georgia State Hospital in 1928. It was named after the hospital's superintendent at the time and remained in operation until 1979.
This was the last location we explored during our trip to the Southern United States last May.
I was so ecstatic to find a mostly in-tact morgue with drawers and doors. I realize that may sound "crazy" to most people, but it's an artifact of these asylums/hospitals that is usually destroyed or full of graffiti.

This building was closed in 1979 after nearly 50 years of operation.
I am known for shooting most of my images at 17mm with everything in focus, but when I walked by and peered into this broken window, I couldn't resist the framing and shallow depth of field.
Operating Room at Central State Hospital.
This building was constructed between 1928 - 1929 and named after the hospital's superintendent at the time. It closed in 1979 and has been abandoned since.
(Dark room. Lit with a warm LED panel and cool LED flashlight.)
This was the last location we visited on our trip to the South. Finding medical equipment is always a nice treat, because many of the locations have been stripped of all furniture and artifacts.
