Belvoir Park Hospital

53618265782_070c895e59_c.jpg


The hospital, which was designed by Young and McKenzie, opened as the Purdysburn Fever Hospital in 1906. The facility became known as Montgomery House in 1953 and it then became Belvoir Park Hospital in the 1960s. The hospital became the main regional centre for oncology, offering radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments and in 1983, the hospital was the first in the province to take delivery of a CT scanner. Friends of Montgomery House, a charity founded by Dr Gerard Lynch to help cancer sufferers and their families, was established in 1984 and the hospital's Gerard Lynch Centre held many cancer support groups, in order to aid both sufferers and their families. After services had been transferred to Belfast City Hospital, the hospital closed in March 2006. In June 2014 the site was sold to a private developer known as the Neptune Group. Neptune Group have since restored some of the original buildings to function as modern townhouses, and the first showhomes were opened in June 2017.

This place is pretty awesome looking back. It's been a minute since I saw our photographs and putting together the video, there really is so much to like. I'm looking at it now like 'these sorts of big, decaying hospitals, little bit trashed, but with so much still inside, just aren't about anymore' with the NHS stripping them rapidly, and old ones in general running out. Looking back at @Speed 's report and others from a decade ago, it has remained one of the best hospitals for years, and despite not being as vandal-free as it was back then, we still found so much interest when we visited on our Summer 2021 trip to Northern Ireland. Visited with @jtza , Alex, legendary Reece and @DustySensorPhotography .

The report contains most of the buildings onsite, besides a couple that were either repetitions of what we had already seen, or just fucked beyond intrigue.

Building 1 - Children's Department

Building 2 - Main Block

Biggest building onsite. Basement here was really cool, had been left with everything still inside, yet with old signage in places.

Upstairs, it was pretty clear it had become a hang out spot for locals, yet the architecture was fairly nice.

Building 3 - General wards

The main attraction. A room absolutely crammed with old equipment that for some reason has just been dumped here. It seemed like this building, being closer to the new apartments, hadn't been trashed as much as the others, as the fascinating relics were in great condition. We went through war to get in here, disturbing a wasp's nest in the big bush the access was hidden behind, only to disturb the locals with our wails of pain.

The Iron Lung, which I think was a Drinker Respirator type, designed in the US in the 1930s.
